A good article but there's a bigger question - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
It doesn't really discuss WHY people are so fond of them. Maybe a good question would be what cars have you owned that you've found the most satisfying? And the other question might be why you liked them? My list (in order) is:
1. Jeep Wranglers - both of them. By far the most satisfying vehicles I've ever owned.
2. '91 Toyota pickup - Extended cab, 4 cylinder, 5 speed, old school 4x4, bought it new and drove it 150K
3. '85 VW Jetta - Bought new, drove 120,000 miles
4. '91 Saab 9000CD - owned four - The most expensive cars to maintain that I've ever owned and yet I loved them.
5. Saab 900s - 6 were convertibles, a hatch, sedans from '84 to '93.
I was surprised when I made the list and the cars that didn't make it. The bigger question is why and I'm not sure I can really define what it was the made them satisfying to own. If there's a theme it seems to be I must like simple, straight forward, "honest" cars. I'm not sure why.
