A Vehicle Worth Every Dollar You'd Spend by Saab owner from Vermont on 04/07/2006. Trim: 1997 Saab 9000 CSE Turbo, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The SAAB is an excellent vehicle. It out-performs most cars in this class. It is reliable, well built, easy to maintain, and is a joy to drive. It can be economical if driven properly. The front seats are comfortable for long trips. The back seat offers plenty of leg room for the average height person. The boot (trunk) is large and spacious, and the rear seat folds down to offer a large cargo area. The Hardan Karman Sound System is great and offers a cassette and a cd player. The 9000 CSE Turbo handles like a dream, tight suspension and great acceleration makes driving it on windy Vermont State roads an enjoyable experience. I've owned SAABs since the 1970's and I like this vehicle the best.
Cons: This vehicle needs to be maintained by a professional SAAB mechanic, it's not for the 'back-yard mechanic'. Choose your mechanic carefully. I've had a little issue with the paint peeling off the lower passenger door, but it's not something that can't be fixed. It's all in the line of maintaining the vehicle.
Overall review: I think I've covered it all. Buy a used SAAB 9000 CSE Turbo from private individual owner that has complete maintenance records. You should have the vehicle checked out by a reputable SAAB mechanic.

Engineered Perfection by Qvergnugen from NY on 03/20/2002. Trim: 1997 Saab 9000 Aero, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Exhilerating to drive. Excellent combination of power and handling. Lots of interior room for passengers and cargo.
Cons: No glove compartment and semi-useful cupholders.
Overall review: This is the second Saab I have owned and is also the most reliable car I have ever owned (out of 8 cars). The versatility of this hatchback design is unbeatable. Too bad Saab doesn't make these anymore.

Racy Family Car by Asian Saab from Elmhurst on 12/27/2000. Trim: 1997 Saab 9000 CSE Turbo, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Very spacious trunk. Turbo power was great. Seating so both comfortable and roomy. Alot of headroom.
Cons: Front wheels get very dirty with break dust. Seat belts tend to make it difficult to park as they do not have any give. Need to take off seat belts when turning body around to see back.
Overall review: Liked this car very much. Very practical. Loved that this car was different than other cars on the road.
