Two points, I don't need another car. My Saab 900 and Volvo 245 are doing just fine. First impressions and test drives are good, but you want to hear from the people with over 100,000 miles on a 9-3 or 9-5. I would have to believe just about any car, including a Kia or Saturn should present no problems in the first 5,000 to 10,000 miles. dave wrote: > There seems to be a debate running over Saab quality,particuarly now GM are > involved,mostly in the negative,I'd be interested to hear the opinion of > anyone who has driven 900(classics)and any new models 93's particuarly-when > I bought my 1986 900 Turbo the guy I bought it from told me that Saab used > to take 40 hours to build a car and are now down to 24,25 hours-I guess this > could be taken as meaningless but the point he thought he was making was > that build quality was suffering-I'm really tempted to buy a new Saab,not > least for the advances made in general in car construction but am generally > happy with the "evergreen" 900.Is it really fair to say that quality is on a > downward trend-I thought maunfacturing was all about quality and > delivery,considering the 65% domination of the 4-door convertible market(UK > sales only I think)I hardly see a problem there-obviously a NG like this > will naturally be dominated by the more problematic sides of Saab ownership > that's no real unbiased cross section then is it?(notwithstanding the posts > in praise-though maybe bias there too). > So lets hear what you have to say..............if it's constructive!!
