Well, as a matter of fact, they are... Saab promised for example (officially!) a 2.2 litre diesel engine in the 900 for the year 1997... did you see it? It wasn't released before the facelift to the 9-3. But, I'm not saying it's a bad thing or something... it takes time to engineer a car as good as a saab... Fact is that most other makes tend to sell their car before the development is completed, just for economical reasons. This year only (2001) 6.800.000 cars were called back because of problems which were not noticed during development. And we all know that Saab was forced by GM once to present a car which wasn't quite ready yet. And I think everybody must agree that the 1994 (and early 1995 maybe) 900's are among the worst Saabs ever produced. -Geert Geerts Saab Site
