    Can't see the add, but Mazda for the reliability and lower maintenance cost.

    Probably not going to pass New York inspection thus the sale. I vote for the turbocharger. Who doesn't like the turbo hiss and BOV pssssh? I can't see the add for the 6 but I would be very weary of anyone's engine "swap" on a used car.

    Saab all the way. Reliability was not really a problem on these (at least, not more than your typical non-Toyota). You want good records of oil changes with full synth to avoid sludging issues.

    But for under $4k, you're taking a risk anyway — may as well get the car that can make big power with a $200 ecu reflash.

    SAAB all the way. If this had the V6 I'd probably hesitate but the 4s are amazing and very tuneable (is that even a word?) to 300+HP. These cars are pretty reliable, provided it's not the V6, and lots of fun to drive. Mazdas rust way too fast around here to be taken seriously…think Fiat back in the old days.

    Saab all the way, but not that one. For that money one should be out there without weird issues. I just sold a no issue 9-3 aero for $3500.

    Saab for sure. Had one in 2003. Fast and reliable out of the box. Austrian made Swede.

    That Mazda 6 looks like a mini Lincoln LS in the front….

    The ad says it all. The Saab has needs and always will, but the driving pleasure belongs to it.
    The Mazda would be the one for me. I don't like broken stuff.
