I've had a lot of Saabs, but only one '03+ car … and that '08 Aero SC has been very good to me! I may have a need (ha!) for a newer convertible early next year, and I'm just curious what people think of the top mechanism. I haven't read about all that many problems, but I was hoping folks could weigh in with their experience. I'd ideally be shopping for an '07+ (non fiber optic) car, but I'd take an earlier model if it was otherwise the right answer. So, if there's any appreciable difference in convertibles, 1st gen vs 2nd gen, I'd love to hear that too.
