Top 10 best used Saabs
It looks increasingly like Saab is at the end of the line. This would be very sad for everyone who works there but also for the rest of us. Saabs have a bad press. Or more accurately a lazy one. Obviously a purist pines for the quirky old days before General Motors bought them, but actually the saloons and estates built in the last decade was not that bad.
From the 99 to 900, 9000, and the later 9-5 models, all Saabs make sensational second-hand buys. In terms of value for money Saabs have never failed to deliver, offering huge levels of standard equipment, arguably the most comfortable seats ever fitted to a vehicle and an exemplary safety record.
Only the increasing electrickery of the 9-3 seems to have caused rather a lot of them to need the firm grasp of the dealer's reset tool.
Indeed, the key to stress free Saab ownership is finding a capable garage, or a specialist who will charge a reasonable labour rate and is happy to source certain parts from breakers.
