While no one doubts that Saab is undergoing major change that has most long-time admirers of the brand holding their breath, all this "an '88 900 is a smoother car than a '99 9-3" is nostalgic garbage. They were always very capable cars for their time, but I know that in '95, when I considered buying different Saabs that ranged from '89 to '93 in time period and test drove them a lot in Saab dealer lot condition, I was steered towards the more recent model as the better driving car every time. Eveyrbody has a right to prefer something else for whatever emotional reasons, but it's silly to claim that 20 year old cars were better engineered and drove better than what Saab producing today. They were great cars... for their time. Now they are cars with a lot of personality and all. ...pablo
