    So I have my Saab 900 sitting in our driveway.. Hasn't moved in a few months. All it needs done is it needs the head gasket replaced and it needs to have the crudy oil cleaned outta the feed lines for the turbo and such. So should i fix it and keep it? Tune it a bit? Or should I just sell it. How much would you guys pay for a 1996 Saab 900SE turbo? All that is wrong with it right now is the head gasket and the oil thing. I think one of the rims has a flat spot on it. Tires are brand new. Paint is perfect. everything on the car works. I think the only other defect is a small slice in one of the leather seats. What do you think i could get for it? Worth selling it or should i keep it till it dies or I pass it one to a family member that needs a car?

    fix it then drive it so you can make up your mind, some people love them, but most hate them.

    my girlfriend HAS one and that car has seen so many new parts I consider it to be new...... its a piece shit keeps breaking, the cars electronics work only half of the time

    she went through 3 head gasket replacements, a transmission rebuild, her door locks no longer work, the rear power window motors quit working the 2nd day she owned the car.... the list goes on

    sell the car if you want to keep a wallet
