"An exec car with 10K miles when I bought it from dealer FEB 95. Enjoyed it immensely since. High performance (in highway cruise mode) luxury sports sedan with high top end. Quiet, very comfortable interior and leather form fitting seats. Roomy! Gas mileage is amazing considering 225HP and high cruising speeds..but requires premium. But it's geared very tall...1st and 2nd gears are just to get to 3rd gear...where the car comes into it's own acceleration wise. Between 50 to 90MPH, it seems like it has an afterburner. 75MPH in 5th is about 2350 RPM. I had it up to 136MPH easy (as logged by GPS max) on a "New Mexico test track". Test reports back then said it was a 150MPH sports sedan. It's true. Can't say enough about this Saab. But it is a SAAB. Even so, it's been pretty darn reliable and owes me little so far. Limp mode once (throttle problem), had to replace heater fan and lost SIDs display on dash...though module itself appears to be still working. If you find a well cared for, lower mileage 9000 Aero of this vintage...buy it. You'll be pleasantly surprised. A future classic, even among Saabs."
Pros: "extremely fun to dirve, coin case with cup holder"
Cons: "Gets around 20 MPG but still worth it"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"The car itself gives a great personality to the driver as well for having a different car apart from the Mainstream Toyota, Kia, Ford, etc. The seats are more comfortable than my bed. The performance is unbelievable and is reliable when needed at most. My father was a SAAB mechanic at Sweden and he even agreed that the 9000 is the safest SAAB created in the time due to its 5 star rating of protection , air-bag deployment or the metal cage around to protect roll-overs.
I recommend this car to anyone who wants to have a fun time along with safe needs"
