Pablo: (Long time, no post :-) The problem with the NG900 was the tonneau motor mount. A fix was engineered in 98 or so and the cars after that do not have the problem. The earlier cars can be fixed with a $9 kit from Saab and a few hours of labor (advanced DIY). Unfortunately a most folks wait until they ruin the motor before considering the fix and they end up paying big bucks for a new motor/mount. To be fair, most of them probably don't know about the issue. It really should have been a "goodwill" repair by Saab for any 95-97 convertible. Bob
