Clean, Nice Trim All Leather Luxuary Car — Car used by all family members and is the favorite for performance, luxuary and comfort. The e european and swedish styling and use of technology is way ahead of its time. The controls are in the middle deck all very handy to safety operate the car. It handles well in all weather situations and serviced by Tampa SAAB Story garage.

A Very Good Car. — This car is a joy to drive. It looks good. It handles well. It really has great acceleration. With its 230 bhp saab turbo engine, it's absolutely fantastic for overtaking. You can say a lot ov things about the swedes, but they do build good cars.

Pros

Comfort, roomy, engine midrange, easy to DIY...

Cons

Needed som DIY (but many don't), varying quality? Go for Vector or Aero package for fun. Linear is not exciting.

It's A Keeper Now That It's Working Without Breaking Down Every Three Months. — Got it at 120000 km and things just started to give in. Changed a lot of parts but now (since about 190000 km) it seems to be working steady. Pretty comfortable car to ride. Engine is sufficient with nice characteristics, but not more. Easy to tune with a chip, but I haven't.

2000 Saab 9-5 2.3t Wagon — Performance: 2.0LPT gives lots of pull from low revs, almost as much torque as a diesel. Very easy to drive fast, brakes feel very nice, handles Ok, body roll is progresive and feels safe. Build Quality: Very Good. Appearance: Very Nice, 7 Speaker Stereo System sounds amazing. Cost Of Owneship: Not as good on petrol as expected (Average 25.5 so far), but that is the trade off for having a turbo. Fun Factor: Good fun, it doesn't feel as vast as it is to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Saab. Turbo. Wagon.

You Know You Want One. — I love this car! Awesome in snow, TURBO, looks good, hauls the whole family and all our stuff, and if we ever hit a moose? Saab thought of that. :) The default transmission setting is a bit doggy, but switch it into "sport mode" and turn off the traction control and it will smoke the tires. Not your grandmas wagon!

Amazing to drive, great quality, fuel efficiency

Cons

Probably more attractive alternatives out there

If You Can See Past The Bland Exterior, Amazing In Every Other Asset — Overall one of the best cars I have ever driven. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars for performance is in the handling dept. But what can you expect from a 4-door saloon? I haven't had any issues mechanically and its beautiful inside. Outside however the car seems a little bland but still somewhat attractive. I love driving it. The car feels like it wants to be driven when you hit the accelerator

Saab 9-5 Se V-6 — Great car but expensive to maintain. Fun to drive, fast, handles great on dry or slick pavement. Very comfortable with great stereo. Decent gas mileage. Very very safe car, has 5 star safety rating. More unique than boring toyota or honda.

9-5 Aero — It is the cheapest way to have a 230hp/350NM car that carries the family safely, can carry some luggage, resonable to insure, 9l/100km on an average. Hard to beat. The value of my 2000 9-5 Aero estate is approx 30 000 SEK.
