Subject: Re: Opinions on 1995 Saab 900S V6 Standard

I have a 1995 900S 2.3L 4-cyl, non-turbo, standard. I've owned it since new, and it's now got 135k on it. The best car I've ever owned; my Toyotas and my Acura were rusted far beyond repair long before 10 years in New England. Maybe a few more minor mechanical issues in the Saab, but nothing major, and it doesn't feel like a P.O.S. after a few years. I'd avoid the V-6 like the plague based on what I've read about it since it first came out. Look for a 4-cyl, get a turbo if you want more fun from the "GO" pedal. I find the non-turbo adequate, but certainly would have opted for the turbo if money wasn't such a consideration when I bought it. (and still is) I've done all my own work, and never had to touch the engine, clutch, or transmission on this car, except for normal maintainence items. I drive it hard and maintain it accordingly. You can change the air filter, dist. cap/rotor, and spark plugs in about 30 minutes total, and not even get dirty.
