I own a 96 900 and love it. 174K on it and other than a few of the "SAAB Quirks" (SID, dash gages flakey etc:) it has been a great car. I live in the wet Northwest of the USA and the brakes do squeal a bit the first few applications if it has been sitting for a day or two, even with new brakes. Enjoy your first car! And Amazon is were I bought my manual. NWFungi
