OMFG... way to embarass yourselves, Saab.

This is why language and grammar is so important. One word could change the entire meaning of that passage if it were included: energy.

Sadly Saab was the first to mass produce a turbocharged passenger vehicle in 1977 with their 99, apparently they can't hire good writers.

Can we still use our exhaust burger cookers with direct exhaust injection?

yes, 1977 was before the 60's. Therefore I'm still right.

so you'd laugh if I bought a 9-2 2.0t or a 9-5 2.3t for my next DD?

Braineack they're amazing cars. so comfortable, I've heard many car reviewers say that the 9000's seats are the most comfortable car seat ever made, and I agree with that. just avoid automatics( of the older saabs), the newer 9-3's and 9-5's are great.

the one modeled after the subaru is a great way to get a wrx for cheap, anyone read the article about it in the newest GRM?

nope, they're a steal for what you get.

i've driven a late 90s 9000 and an early 80s 900 and neither was offensive. the 900 rode very firmly and handled well without being uncomfortable. I didn't drive the 9000 much.

and of course the 9-5 isn't really a saab, now is it. plus Jim on the Office drives one.

I had a 1994 saab 900 2.5l V6, only had 170hp but it felt amazingly fast. 5spd, did an indicated 145 on the freeway. This of course all before I knew I wasn't invincible, and before I put it sideways into a tree at 100mph. Walked away without a scratch if that tells you anything about their safety.

i had a '97 900SE 2.0T. Fast, great MPG, comfy, best stereo i've ever owned.

mechanically it was excellent to me.......however, every damn gizmo was breaking on me.
they are too expensive to replace (auto climate control unit about $900), so i had to sell it.

Forgot about that! The Harmon system in my 9-5 is the best factory sound I've ever had. I have no desire to upgrade it at all, sounds great.

I had the harmon system in my 9000 after I crashed the 900, it was indeed awesome. had the automatic that everyone said to avoid, and it blew up on us 3 times. we paid $2800 to get it fixed, it broke, fixed it under warrenty, it broke, fixed it under warrenty, and then we traded it in, luckily it didn't break on the dealer's test drive

Of course I'd get a 5-spd. I live near a dealer of Saabs and Vovlos. Everytime I see the price tags I wonder why im driving my shitty altima.
