Subject: 1998 GM 900 vs. C900


I'm back to SAAB after 2 years away driving Japanese cars.. can't say I miss them. I had an '84 & '89 900 & I'm finally beyond the Classic 900. The transmission feel, suspension, & interior noise I think are all WAY better in the NG900. Having a remote and Alarm system is taking some getting used to but I think this is an improvement. I'm really missing the ability to open the back hatch using a latch where it should be like the C900's (and our 02 Subaru!) Is there supposed to be a piece of plywood under the carpet in the trunk!!?? The C900's had a wonderful trunk floor and I'm wondering if my 900 is not quite all there. It looks like the oil filter position is fixed in the '98. The C900 with that odd angle was always a mess. I'm not convinced that I miss the curved windshield! The wipers left this huge unswept area, that is so thankfully gone. I used to joke that the engineers picked the windshield and then said Oh-NO! we forgot that have to get wipers to work on here! And from 84 to 89 SAAB messed up the dome light, I was glad to see that the '98 has this very much improved with two dome lights and the back one recessed into the ceiling. This is great for kids. Feels good to be back, -D
