"Have owned 3 95's and always found them to be a good value, reliable and reasonable appointed. Not the most fun or comfortable car to drive....certainly will not garner a second look (unless from Saab enthusiast) on the road but will be priced well below vehicles with similar options and reliability history."

"I love this car. I purchased it at around 176xxx for $1,800 a year or so ago. It is very responsive and squeals tires through 2nd gear and sometimes a glimpse of 3rd. Ever since I bought it though, I replaced: the radiator, drivers side control arm, air filter, Direct ignition cassette, clutch, slave cylinder, fuel pump, starter relay, Turbo by-pass valve, Crankshaft position sensor, Valve cover gasket, struts, and need a new exhaust system pretty badly. But I knew I would run into a generous amount of work when I bought it considering the miles and lack of mechanical history. This car does me good, sounds good, drives good, the stopping power is amazing on it, nice tight steering, power, response, I get approx 23.5 MPG averaged over interstate and town driving. Generally get around 26-27 interstate and `18-24 in town.(depending on how one drives) I plan on keeping this car when the engine blows and replacing it with a 2010 Saab 9-5 aero v-tech 2.3L V4. There isn't much to customize aftermarket wise, but what you can replace on it, makes it unique."
