I would recommend avoiding the '93s, as they are somewhat unique. A lot of things were changed in '94, making the '93s a little odd. I'd also really recommend holding out for a '98, since you get virtually all of the x70 updates without losing a lot of the tried & trued 850 designs. You also get a more modern interior, which is kind of nice. Another advantage about sticking with '94-'98 cars is that you can get Vol-FCR, which is a 3rd party diagnostic software that does most things (like reading engine, transmission, and ABS codes) that you'd otherwise need a dealer tool to do. It doesn't work right or at all on '99+ cars. In my very limited experience these are pretty solid cars that cost the same to maintain as a Saab. They don't have the same character or the same dynamics, but they weren't supposed to, either. It's pretty clear why someone wouldn't actually cross-shop Saabs and Volvos circa the late '90s!
