You know, I think that I feel the exact same way about these cars. I bought my first SAAB, a 1990 9000 SPG in the fall of '94 with about 110000km on it. It was in and out of the shop on a monthly basis, spent about $3000 CDN on repairs during the one year that I owned it. Traded it in on a '95 900S in the fall of '95 which I sold Feb '97. At that time I swore to never again buuy another SAAB. Although it was new and under warranty, it began to show signs of trouble as the on trip computer started to do wierd things, the breaks were replaced twice and the clutch cable also had to be replaced...things that shouldn't happen to a new car. But what did I do last night? Took delivery of a '95 9000 CSE with about 56k kms on it. These cars look and drive fantastic as you know. As far as reliability issues, I'm hoping that the third time's a charm. www.edmunds.com ranks this car fairly high on reliability, although the Lemon Aid book ranked it as a below average buy due to reliability issues, so I don't know what to think. jeffnopsamrrod.com wrote in message <34D8D6E2.2255nopsamrrod.com>... >I had a Saab which I loved but I have to admit.
