I picked up an '89 9000 turbo two years ago for $6,500 (ripoff), and have had major problems with it. I had it checked out by a Saab mechanic, and had so many "unforseen" problems in the following year. Unless you have a real love affair with this car, I would suggest a more pracital purchase. phineousnopsameja.com wrote: > > I've never owned a Saab and would like more info before I join the > club.
