It runs great, starts on the first try. It handle the curves with no body roll and is absolutely smooth at 70+ miles per hour. The AC is capable of freezing you on a hot summer day. I have another Saab. It has died while driving at at night with total electrical failure. Half of the dash lights failed, one of the power seats is dead, and the car has starting problems after driving in the rain. The AC on hot day reduces the amount of sweating - slightly . . Guess which car is a Classic and which car is a NG . . . The good news in the newer car is still under warranty. :-) Saab earned its reputation with the Classics. GM bought Saab and saved money by sharing GM components. GM may have rescued Saab financially, but they have not done much for its quality.
