I've been driving SAABs for 20 years and have this advice to any SAAB newbie, especially if you're going in for a used vehicle: If at all possible, try to locate an independent mechanic with access to used parts. I am very fortunate, where I live (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) we have an independent shop specializing in SAAB & Volvo (emphasis on SAAB) with an ENORMOUS inventory of used parts. This guy has saved my bank account times too numerous to count. --dma In article <7q4r9e$lle$1nopsam1.deja.com>, simon_magnusnopsameja.com wrote: > I've recently been looking to buy a '95 Saab 900 at a local used car > dealer.
