      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I could bore for England on the subject of my Saab SE estate. Having had a very free choice of company car since 1968 it comes as a shock to PAY for one yourself, but the SE is superb. It was bought new in April 1969, run-in by driving to the Pyrennees and back and has been perfectly reliable ever since with several long Continental trips to it's credit. The ride and handling are excellent, there is only a small change when it is fully loaded (eight cases of wine, forty-eight litres of Badoit, twelve 26-pack lagers and luggage for two people for two weeks). It is reasonably cheap to insure (just over £300 pa) and does 32 MPG on a long run. The service charges are much less than half those my daughter-in-law pays for her VW Golf GTI and at just on 30,000 miles has only needed two new tyres and a set of front brake-pads replacing plus the usual oil and filter changes. The major con is it's thirsty habit on local runs, 20/25MPG. Incidentally, the best was my ex-works, rally prepared MGA FH/coupe with a race tuned engine. I did 88000 glorious miles in that car!
