      You would avoid Saabs altogether? Why the 940?

      The "antiqueness" of the 240 appeals to me, as I want something that is easy to repair and maintain. This is the second or third time someone in the...

      The 940 was a 4-cylinder RWD, while he 960 was 6-cylinder RWD, correct?

      How did they slot in compared to the 850?

      I was always confused to the 740/760, then 850, then 940/960 model hierarchy....

      For those who have has to replace the A/C condensor (or other parts) on a Saab or Volvo, how bad was it?

      About 1/2 of the ads I see for Volvos say "A/C needs a charge" or the more honest "A/C is...
    4. Feeling nostalgic, let's talk about Saab 900s, 9000s, and maybe Volvos

      I'm currently going through the process of researching a "fun" vehicle primarily for train station, city driving/parking, and occasional Home Depot runs. I've always loved Saabs and Volvos, and...

      The main problem is I still think the car looks quite timeless and "modern." Call me a badge snob but any type of replacement would probably be German, unless I got the total opposite direction with...

      B5 S4 - Fix or Train Station Duty?

      I've owned my lightly modded S4 for over 8 years and have enjoyed it very much. All the while, I generously devoted time (and money) to keeping it looking and running well. It has had numerous dings...

      This looks like the "standard" model. It's not Sport, nor the Luxury model, however it does have the Sport style grille instead of the standing star.

      After owning cars like a Corrado and a B5 S4...

      If you have side mirrors (on years that had them), most cops will leave you alone. Of course the Wrangler has this covered with optional/aftermarket side mirrors mounted to the windshield hinge area....

      What is your credit rating (FICO Score) situation? This is a factor in most state insurance rates.

      Are you on Fuelly? I seem to be leading the 2016 models, but most are wagons.

      I'm confident 750-800 miles per tank is a possibility if you keep it at 55mph. Haven't had the time yet to try!!

      That's the bit of chrome that bothers you? Holy moley there is so much plasti-chrome on the GMC. Crossed the tacky line long ago.

      Clearly, the time to question the seat quality or "user error" was when the first slight rip or tear was spotted (anything more than 1/16" or so I would consider to be an issue - and much like a lose...

      I don't know the answer, unless I'm looking in the wrong places (Bimmerfest & Bimmerforums), the BMW diesel forum community is seriously lacking any technical/maintenance/general know-how on the 4...

      Nice choice! Most M-Sport dash trim is usually Aluminum Hexagon. The Ash Grain wood looks nice and different. Really works for a White exterior.

      Just to add to the reliability aspect of the 335d, I've owned a Corrado and presently own a high-mileage B5 S4, two of the most unreliable and/or expensive cars to maintain from VAG.
