'97 900 hatchback good buy?

05-03-2007, 01:56 PM
i'm lookin at a '97 900 s hatchback, 5 spd, 138,000 miles for $1700. i know that's cheap, but i also know saabs are super expensive to repair, and i can't spend more than $2500 total.

1. what problems should i look for when i test drive it?
2. if it all looks good, is it worth the risk of high repair costs when i could just buy a more reliable/cheaper to repair honda with comparable miles, quality, and price? 'cause if i get stuck with huge repair bills, i'm screwed.
