My wife drives a '93 9000 CSE with ~120k miles and it's a fine car. Maintenance isn't outrageous, although it isn't the most bulletproof car I've ever owned. That distinction goes to my 84 900 Turbo with ~250k miles... Anyway, the car is nearly 9 years old now and therefore isn't new. We've got a problem with the HVAC that seems electrical, an SRS problem (electrical again), and the dreaded TCS failure has been intermittent (electrical again, and reminds us of it's presence about twice per year). If you can get the car for a good price, I would do it. The car has great power, handles wonderfully in the snow, tons of room, very comfortable, attractive...
