Pros

Comfortable and effortless

Cons

fuel consumption

Comfy Commuting Barge, Cheap To Buy. — Reasonably brisk in everyday driving, no squeaks or rattles at 120K miles, quite nice looking when clean, too thirsty really. I had the engine out and changed the camchain etc when I bought the car so although it has cost me a little money it should go on for years, if I don't get too bored in the meantime.

Pros

Cozy as all get out, quick, and unique

Cons

Not too much fun to drive

Not Too Shabby — 2.3 L Turbo gives lots of power...but it was really not too much fun to drive. Hit gas, go fast...no feel to the car at all. Definitely built for comfortable speed. Looks are unique to Saab as are the cup holders. If only it held around that corner on my last drive......

What? — It has solid acceleration. It is very reliable and has good handling. You can really feel the turbo around the upper RPMs. It is very fun to drive because it handles like a dream and has an extremely smooth ride.

Saab 9-5 — it has a rebuilt transmission that is the smoothest you will find. it has a nice and loud turbo and the upgraded exhaust kit on it. the windows are tinted all the way around the car as dark as possible. the interior is tan leather all around. it gets around 21 mpg. overall this is a great car

If You Can Afford The Repairs.. Go For It! — love the car - hate the cost of repairs, going to get myself ready to purchase a new one since I cant really afford the cost of repairs (all it takes is one repair) great car otherwise - comfortable, looks great, runs great

Slightly Pricey, But Great Performance By Lee
