Hey Joel, I have had two SAABS so far (I'm 19yo....i love them). One was an ANCIENT 1984 900 Turbo and the present one is a 92 900s. Both of my cars have had their moments in the shop, but they are usually in the shop because the people who owned them before me were lax in caring for them. Once I got them back to fully working and keep the maintenence up, they go on forever. The 84 has about 150,000 miles on it and is going strong, while the 92 has nearly 100,000 on it and purrs like a kitten. They are GREAT cars, but just like every other european car they MUST be taken care of...... And from all the people I know who own the convertible......if you buy it, it won't be your last!!! --Chris On Sun, 18 Jan 1998 18:44:32 -0800, dimanopsamystems.com wrote: >Joel Silverman wrote: >> I am thinking about buying a new Saab 900 S convertible, but am worried >> about the Saab's "reputation" for being in the mechanic's garage as often as >> it's in your own garage.
