Definitely go for the SE. Every single time you drive it, you'll be happy you went for it. If you can, I would test drive a bunch of different SE's, including different model years. Saab has been slowly "refining" the car over the years since '94, not always for the better. FYI, I don't really buy another poster's dissing of the turbo engine. 101K on mine, don't warm it up much at all, and it's been very reliable and runs like new. Totally fantastic car - hope you go for it and enjoy it! Barry Anand Modi <> wrote in message > I'm looking for an opinion on what to buy-- i recently lost my beloved > 92 acura vigor in an accident.
