And now everyone just had a flashback to elementary school when we all had folders with this car plastered on it and it was cool because it was all spaceship-y internet http 90s! Yeah! AOL Keywords and street sharks! Ecto cooler in your lunch box and backstreet boys on the radio! And a 1988 concept car on your big… » 9/19/14 11:09pm Yesterday 11:09pm

Saabarus are VERY unreliable since most/all have been driven for almost 10 very hard years and they are overpriced due to the saab factor. I've never been a fan of them.
