The new generation 900 was GM developed. The development of the 9000 started as a consortium project between Saab, Lancia, Alfa Romeo and Fiat. These cars are superficially similar, but very different under the skin. You should definitely have a look at a 9000. They are good value at the moment, comfortable, spacious and brilliant to drive. The maintenance costs are no different to other modern Saabs as they use similar mechanics. Johannes
