Should I keep or sell trusty Saab?

Feb 18, 2010 Full story: Telegraph.co.uk

I drive a 1991 Saab 900 Carlsson, which I have had virtually from new. It is now approaching 150,000 miles and I am becoming worried because so far almost nothing has gone wrong.

I drive a 1995 Saab 9000CS with 230,000 miles it's been a great vehicle. I plan on running it for as long as nothing major fails.

I drive a 2001 Saab 9-3 with 130k miles on the clock. It looks, feels and drives like a new car. If properly looked after these cars can go hundreds of thousands of miles.

I had a 1995 900S Convertible with 218K on it before I gave it to my nephew and bought another used 2003 9-3SE Convertilbe. The car still had no major issues at all other than some hoses going. I would keep it, you may regret getting rid of it. Plus, if it is not broken why fix it?

I would definitely keep it, cause if you want a similar car in build quality, performance and versatility you'd have to dig deep in your wallet.

Plus, your car is a modern classic! No one gets rid of a modern classic unless they have to. Why, in a few years time it'll be a veteran vehicle with all the benefits to follow.

No, you should keep on to it and nurse it like a baby, that's what I'd do :-)

The H series engine is one of the most relbiable engines ever built. The record is a 1985 900 turbo that went 1,000,000 miles wihtout a rebuild of engine or turbo.

Follow the original factory maintenance schedule, use the best fluids, oil, hydraulic, antifreeze, dsitilled water. Go to a SAAB forum and find a good certified SAAB mechanic in your area and just drive and enjoy. You own a rare car that is increasing in value.
