Looking for a Saab 95 wagon/4dr. need help!!

sup guys, im new here. i mean to saabs. i just got a few questions regarding to a saab i will be getting soon and just wanna know the common problems and if it will be the right car for me to buy.

first off, i come from a Honda/Toyota/Subaru Family, something that a whole bunch of asian has and i wanna start something new, i seen couple of saabs 95 4dr/wagon driving around with some nice bbs rims lowered, it really caught my attention as the hondas and toyotas start to fade away. i just wanna know if there reliable as the japanese car maker, i understand that german cars are hard to maintance, so i just want you guys to give me a heads up for what i gotta look for when buying one and what common problem it has and too see if its something i can deal with. so any feedback will be appreciated.

im spec. looking for a 99-02 saab 95 wagon. i wanna go "stance" with these, i would look pretty SWEET!

*Acura TL's are the WORST*

good idea doing some research beforehand. like every car there are some things that need to be looked for before purchasing. As a gennerell rule with saabs its cheaper to fix things before they break, so when you buy one live by the rule of preventive maintenance.

look around here for topics concerning pan sludge, and HVAC issues and you will find the two worst, and most common things

I have seen very few 9-5's survive the purely mindless lack of maintenance that a Japanese car can. They require intelligence and some work occasionally. But, when all is well they are fantastic inexpensive cars.

Just missed out on a sweet 9-5 aero that was for sale on here. Good luck, these are great cars when the previous owner kept up with maintaince. If high miles have a prepurchase inspection and pull the valve cover to check the motor for sludge. Some people never change the oil subsequently kill their motor early.
