    I've always really liked Saabs, used to have a regular customer who drove a perfectly maintained 900 turbo in white, red leather seats. a pretty car

    I feel bad because my "old car" was a 98 Camry and now I drive a 2001 Pathfinder and it's a gas and money guzzling box of shit...

    Good cars, terrible looks, but the safest thing you can get for the road...
    Really sad they went kaput.
    P.S. finding parts for these things is a bitch!

    I don't know, I really like the looks of some of them.

    But yeah, even when you can find parts, they're expensive as hell.

    I am still driving my old car. A '93 Buick Regal I got for free about 12 years ago.

    Saabs in recent years are basically just rebadged Vauxhall (GM) platforms. Parts aren't that much of an issue.

    Availability no, price yes. Mine has been sitting in the driveway until I've had time enough to fix it. Oil leaks everywhere, one would take a $167 part to fix properly, but I had to hack up a job to stop it dumping oil out of the vacuum pump.
