Would you buy a 9000 that has TCS?
Posted by Rick C. [Email] (more from Rick C.) on Mon, 14 Oct 2019 21:08:05
I could be tempted by a sub-100k mile '95 9000 Aero, NO rust, manual, very clean, mint interior, but that has TCS. I did some digging on here and it looks to be nightmare, potentially, to deal with. I guess my question is, what are the odds of failure, and of tough to repair failure at that?
If it's a 20% chance over the next 100k miles, maybe that's ok. If it's 80%, not so much! How much luck have you had, assuming some preventative maintenance measures are taken?
Also, are parts becoming a real problem for these cars? This would be to replace a '04 9-5 Aero, which has served us INCREDIBLY well and still drives great, but that is suffering from rust. The 9000 would be for quasi-daily use, though we have another car that can be used as back-up if it were "down". A 900 SPG might also be in the running, never had one and that itch is, well, itchy!!! but perhaps that's getting a little too old?
Thoughts most welcome!
'04 9-5 Aero
'00 9-5 Aero
'99 9-3 SE cabrio
'97 900 SE Talladega
'96 9000 Aero (non-TCS)
'95 900 SE Turbo
