    I just bought a Griffin edition 9000, needs some work, especially on the interior, but drives great and is fast! looking forward to getting this car looking great again in the future with the help from my saab mechanic.

    Other items which made this edition unique…I proudly own #77 of 400.

    – separate A/C unit stored in trunk with a vent in rear shelf. Included separate rear a/c control on climate control unit. Owner can even adjust the rear air flow or set to ‘auto’.
    – leather/suede owner’s manual cover/case with gold plated air pressure gauge and pen/pencil
    – service card which covered all deductions and provided a service car free
    – Griffin Edition emblem on the rear lower panel next to truck lid
    – wood accent for passenger-side air vent and rear ashtray cover
    – 3 separate position memory seat for passenger (this was standard on most driver side seats)
    – rear self-leveling suspension which adjusts to weight load retain ride height level
    – extra padding and thicker carpet made the Griffin a more quiet ride vs standard 9000

    I have a 1992 Saab 9000 CD Turbo Griffin Edition with about 65,000 original miles. This automobile runs very well, is scary fast and needs just a little TLC. Very minor body work on driver door jam. Getting ready to put new heater core. Vehicle was an Alaskan car for most of its life and has been in retirement driving only a couple thousand miles a year as a pleasure vehicle. Air Conditioning is not charged. I am considering selling the vehicle. If there is any interest please contact me via email…Rob

    Got a 92 9000 cd griffin. Going to be selling. Turns but won’t run. Think it’s the fuel pump. It’s getting air and spark though.
