Hi Mark, Take a good look at that list of repairs, the Saab repair comments, and Saab Inc response. Also I've had three other personal email from people telling me the 900 SE V6 stinks (one of the buyers was smart enough to return it within a couple of months, he invoked the Florida lemon law). I don't know which of the 900SE V6's are OK and if some people got an OK one, good for them, the majority did not. That's a fact, even the dealer says the V6 ain't a true Saab (of course its thier only way of trying to sell another). I'm not impressed with Saab period. There are a lot of people who know the 900SE V6 is a dud and Saab is hinding from this and trying to bury it fast. There are no more 900SE V6's being made and the engine apparantly comes from the GM Opel line. If you still want to buy a Saab, stick with their 4 cylinder turbo's period, and stay away from all the 84-86 900 cars (1st 3yrs of production). Good luck.
