Here's the deal- I commute about 135 miles a day (round trip) and need something fairly comfortable for a 6' 2" guy. I'm looking for something reliable and capable of going 120,000 miles over the next five years or so. I've always loved Saabs and have the opportunity to get a 99 900 S Turbo (109k miles) at a very good price. The car meets all of my requirements, is ultra clean and appears to be sound. The questions- if the car is all good off the lot, can I expect it to hold up well with the high mileage requirement I have? If I treat it like a member of the family, how many miles could I typically expect to get out of it? Are there any problems with this model that I should specifically look for? I've heard stories of 400k miles plus, but find it hard to believe. Thanks in advance for any help.
