The CD model is a sedan, CS is a hatchback, and CSE is the hatchback with extra equipment making it a higher trim level. A CSE is one step down from the top of the line "Aero" trim level. These letters were used for trim levels on MY 1993 and up. Through 1992, the "S" model was the standard hatchback, and the Turbo model was the higher trim level. The CD model was the sedan back then also and was available in turbo and normally aspirated versions. My 1991 9000T has about 120K miles on it. I bought it with 84K and haven't had problems with the clutch. I don't think the previous owner had the clutch replaced, since it seemed obvious to me that he never had the hydraulic fluid for the clutch replaced/bled.
