Not a patch on the C900 IMHO. Far too much GM in evidence, clutch felt 'notchy', back seat was a pain to lower (compared to C900), the interior storage space was a joke, and the 'floor' of the boot was a kind of floppy carpet abomination that just collapsed if you put anything heavy in it. And you couldn't sleep in the back like to C900 hatch. We ran it for a year and just got more and more depressed about it. Eventually we could stand it no longer and went looking for a 9000. Eventually bought a 2.3 LPT. Now I know some purists will say the 9000 isn't a real Saab, but it sure as hell feels like it - especially after our NG900 experience. Wish we'd kept the C900 now as well....
