Saab 9000 Reviews

240000 miles. 300 horses(not stock). 32 mpgs. Not swayed at all by anything else. Very nice daily driver that will smoke evos,wrx's and mustangs all day long.

An overall very solid car. Defined by luxury and performance, it will surprise you in all areas. Things like the blower motor and heater core fail every 100k miles and an electrical failure can be difficult to diagnose. However, aside from those minor mishaps, the car is unbeatable.
