"As the song goes "driven every sort rig that's ever been made...driven the back roads..." This car is a poor man's Porche. I have averaged 30-60k annually for the last 35 years of driving and have never fallen so hard for a car before. I would keep it forever if it made financial sense"

"Loved my saab from day 1. Wish I could buy another one. Could probably drive her for several more years because I also have a great mechanic that is a saab expert but I drive alot for work and it was time to give my girl a rest and let someone else enjoy her for a little while longer."

"This car was my favorite. I keep my cars forever and had planned on five more years. It broke down out of state and fixing these cars isn't easy unless you're in a big city. It required a two hr flatbed tow home. I'm trading it in for a Subaru Imprezza as it's time to stop putting money into it. It was beyond fun to drive, had fabulously comfy seats, so much power that one could hydroplane in sport mode and being bright red, I felt I had the best car in the world. It held my tall grandchildren relatively well. The bells and whistles will be hard to match in another car. Ditto it's great looks. The trunk space felt limitless. Ah well, all good things come to an end. Perhaps I should say all love affairs come to an end."
