Subject: Re: advice wanted - purchasing 1991 900S Turbo convertible

I have a 93 convertible so our models are very similar. I bough mine about 6 months ago with 160K on the clock for $3k. I could not be happier. The trannys are the weak spots on these cars. Mine was completely rebuilt at 120k for $3,800. Ouch I feel sorry for the prior owner. I could have got it done for half that. There was a recall on the convertible top that causes premature wear. The convertible top issue was a "Service Directive." Since it was not a Campaign or a Recall, the repair was only covered while the vehicle was under new car warranty. I checked on the parts prices, they were less than $10 each. It may have already been done, just not correctly. Good luck and I would not hesitate to purchase that car. I would pay to have it checked out for piece of mind. G "MercedesOwner" <> wrote in message > I'd like advice on the 1991 Saab 900S Turbo convertible w/manual > trans.
