I don't think you'll be disappointed. On the test drive, you'll find the power delivery to be very smooth, but do try to find some hard corners and really put the power down _into_ the corners - I bet you love how that feels :) SAAB got the handling right again after many years! You can be sure that dangerous understeer/oversteer situations for a young driver are handled very well by this breed of car. Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
