previous owner ignored the comon leaks and let it collect and rust up over time. Seems to have just pop through one day, the reason why they sold it, otherwise it was off the a junk yard. I bought it for $400, not bad i figure, i have almost full access to parts, and what i can't get i can get cheap. So over the course of time this high millage beast will be as new, or like new. I am planing on getting the interior this weekend if it is still in the one yard near by...and some tinted tail lights as well as many more needed parts.

not true 100%, they did use the same saab mechanic since the car was bought new in 87, it was regular for maintenance they said...tho so far every vac. line seems original, dry rotted, and all the other rubber hoses have had slices in them. The rotor and cap seem original, or damn near anyways. But the engine does run smoothly after she idles for a little, still a few bad vac lines. I replaced the Idle Air controller too, that made a BIG differance. The car now has boost atleast, and doesn't stall easily. However is someone has a pedal for the clutch that is near new, i may need one....

All early 9000 owners should check for cracks in the rear inner fender wells. The cracks are common and are not caused by rust but by metal fatiuge. It seens Saab fixed the prob. for the 89 model year.
