|Saab in New Jersey, United States|
|102000||700||The car wouldn't start. Had it towed to the Saab dealer. Replaced an ignition part, the coil, I think. The car stopped on the street and wouldn't move. A grinding sound came from the transmission and it jerked into gear. Car was towed to my driveway. I'll give it away. I've spent $15,000 in repairs in three years. Worst car I ever owned|
