Pros

The only way to make a Subaru better is to make it a Saab.  Better styling with rock solid Subaru reliability.

Cons

Premium fuel.  If you have to ask how much, you can't afford it.

Saabaru. — Just an awesome car overall. Great handling and performance. Solid Subaru mechanical design with the addition of Saab style. The price is right for the performance. Too bad Subaru and Saab didn't have more time to cooperate. If you think it is an abomination, try driving one.

A Nifty All Weather Hatch — Good all-weather performance, better gas mileage than expected, good looking, could use a little more back seat space. I bought the car with a substantial rebate and still received amount when I traded in the car. I owned the only Saab in the parking lot.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Cons

Tinny doors, size

Saaburu 9-2x — Turbo means fast. Turbo means Premium Fuel ONLY. AWD Means sensational Grip. AWD means reduced gas mileage. 95% Subaru, 5% Saab. Engine/Drivetrain/Chassis is from WRX/STI Imprezza. Interior is Saab. Rally genes with a Swedish fish hairdo. Brilliant Red with Black/White leather interior. No major mods though (jus rims, tints).

Jack Of All Trades. — Saab's version of the WRX Sport Wagon, with upgraded leather interior, STi headlights, STi steering rack, and a Saab nose. Too bad they didn't put the key on the floor like a proper Saab.

Pros

Great handling, comes manual, with outstanding power for a sport wagon.  Look is beautiful.  Much classier than anything in its class.

Cons

Because of the all-wheel drive system combined with a manual gearbox, one has to be a bit more sensitive with gunning it for a race.  If you mess up, bye bye clutch.

Mix Of Speed, Sleeper, And Class All Bottled Up In One Beautiful Machine!!! — Great handling with superb engineering (Fuji Motors) combined with a wonderful interior and outstanding exterior, equals one amazing Saab. If you wish to race it, go ahead, its got the power of a WRX, but sophistication of a Saab. A definite practical car for modern drivers.

Nothing Bad To Say About The Car Except The Sound System Sucks By dre0812

handles very well good acceleration but the first gear is a little short only like 30 to 35 mph Read More

Saab Station Wagon, Woohoo! By Douglas

Great gas mileage for an all wheel drive car, 30-32 mpg! Heated seats, mirrors and windshield wipers are awesome for the snow, handles great, ok power. It's a nice daily driver. Read More
