4.0 out of 5 stars For your basic mechanic
Great for quick little simple tune up procedures. Don't expect wiring, vacuum, or emissions schematics in legible charts. Just enough for a general idea. If you need specific torques ect, buy yourself the factory service manuals. Still handy to have around for a quick reference, on a budget or don't plan on having the vehicle long.

3.0 out of 5 stars You will buy this book
Of course you will. You have no choice in the matter. The original Saab manuals are long out of print and rare as hen's teeth. So you will buy it, and you will join the legion of Saab 9000 enthusiasts who affectionately call it "the book of lies."

You will supplement your purchase with an Alldata subscription, because really, you will want accurate wiring...

3.0 out of 5 stars You will buy this book, August 18, 2008
This review is from: Saab 9000 (4-cylinder) Service and Repair Manual (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Paperback)
Of course you will. You have no choice in the matter. The original Saab manuals are long out of print and rare as hen's teeth. So you will buy it, and you will join the legion of Saab 9000 enthusiasts who affectionately call it "the book of lies."

You will supplement your purchase with an Alldata subscription, because really, you will want accurate wiring diagrams and component placements.

You will become a denizen of [...] because the wealth of experience there will let you know when the book is true and when the book is false.

And with all those things, you should be able to get many miles of driving pleasure from your 9000.

But don't think for a moment that you can rely on the book alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Haynes Saab 9000 Service Manual, February 23, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Saab 9000 (4-cylinder) Service and Repair Manual (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Paperback)
This manual is typical Haynes with poor quality paper and hard to see detail in photographs. It is unfortunately one of the few such manuals available for this car and other foreign cars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing else compares, June 23, 2008
This review is from: Saab 9000 (4-cylinder) Service and Repair Manual (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Paperback)
Literally, nothing else compares. It's the only one! Seriously, though, anyone who owns a Saab should get the relevant manual, if available. Without this book, I would have spent either far too much money at the dealer or far too much time looking for a mechanic daring enough to work on a Saab.

The book binding is starting to come apart a bit after a couple years, and the photos and overall feel of the book is a bit unprofessional, but I've found it useful for its purpose. The difficulty ratings are junk, however. One repair which had a rating of "easy" had me to the point of beating my car and anthropomorphising the poor thing with creative profanity, whereas one "fairly difficult" repair took little time and effort. Use your own instincts to decide whether you want to tackle a task.

The book was described accurately. It will help to keep my very old but still running Saab on the road.

This review is from: Saab 9000 (4-cylinder) Service and Repair Manual (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Paperback)
It's helpful, unless you're looking for something that's not in there. If you've got the car, then you should probably buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars SAAB 9000 Haynes Manual, August 3, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Saab 9000 (4-cylinder) Service and Repair Manual (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Paperback)
Book is what you would expect from any Haynes manual, plenty of pictures illustrating components. Exactly what I needed to effect some repairs. (Well that, and the 'interweb' forums of course)

4.0 out of 5 stars Saab 9000 Haynes manual, January 11, 2007
This review is from: Saab 9000 (4-cylinder) Service and Repair Manual (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Paperback)
It was nice to find a manual for this car. It doesn't seem to be available at auto parts stores.

Fairly well laid out book, somewhat typical of other Haynes manuals I've had. Hardcover should help the book last longer.
