Introduction to the Saab 9000
The Saab 9000 was introduced in the UK in October 1985 as a 5-door Hatchback, with a turbocharged fuel-injected 16-valve 1985 cc engine. The normally-aspirated engine followed in early 1986, and an automatic transmission version in late 1986. A 4-door booted Saloon version was introduced in early 1991.
All engines are of 16-valve double overhead camshaft design, the 2290 cc version being introduced in late 1989 on the 9000i and CDi. This engine is fitted with the Saab Direct Ignition system, with separate ignition coils for each spark plug together with a system ECU, instead of the previous Hall-effect/distributor ignition system. Initially, a Bosch LH-Jetronic fuel injection system was fitted. The Saab-manufactured ’Trionic” system fitted to the 2290 cc engine in 1993 is a full engine management system, controlling the fuel injection, ignition and turbocharger. This system was later fitted to non-turbo models. All engines are fitted with hydraulic tappets, and later engines are fitted with balancer shafts.
The engine is mounted transversely, with the transmission mounted on the left-hand side. A five-speed manual transmission or four-speed automatic transmission is available.
All models have fully-independent front and rear suspension. The rear suspension incorporates leading and trailing arms, shock absorbers and a low-level Panhard rod.
A wide range of standard and optional equipment is available within the Saab 9000 range to suit most tastes, including central locking and electric windows. An anti-lock braking system, traction control system and air conditioning system are available on certain models.
Provided that regular servicing is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, the Saab 9000 should prove reliable and economical.
