1990 Saab 9000 Reviews

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.
