One Of Gm's Best Kept Secrets. — I started with a 9-3se and moved up to the Sportcombi Aero and I just love the car. The issues I had with the stereo on the old car were fixed with this model, lots of room, comfortable, suspension is perfect they did away with the rear twist beam, fun to drive. I have driven the BMW 328xi (my Father in law's) and the SAAB is quieter, faster, and more comfortable not to mention cheaper. I can't understand why this new generation of SAAB hasn't caught on. MERC hasn't got any thing that is close to this car and Audi.... well they have Quatro but it isn't raining or icy all the time but still pricey and not worth the extra expense,not as reliable either. Long story short, if you want something fun to drive, different that all the rest, more economical with LOTS of performance this is the car for you.

Pros

great ride

Cons

design issues

Great Acceleration And Ride, Design Issues — Issues with front spoiler design, damage on standard curbs-deattached repeatedly; turbo uptake poor placement too close to road - engine ruined with water uptake. In 3 yrs: replaced spoiler 3X, engine once, windshield once. Love turbo acceleration except for tickets. Service stinks. Overpriced. Sued corporate over issues won.

Nothing More Fun Than Blowing The Doors Off A 335 In My Wagon — I absolutely love this car. I bought it to have something to haul my 3 dogs around and to take trips in as my Saab 9-7x likes fuel. This get 30 on the highway and, with the tune I added, does 0-60 in about 5 seconds.

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

FUN and versatile

Cons

DonĀ“t like certain GM remains such as cheap plastic on a few spots

Buy It! — Like it very much. The designation SportCombi actually says it all. Automatic trans with manual "paddles" on the steering wheel. Vector version with Factory toned windows, automatically dimming rear view mirrors. luxury leather, high end stereo and so on. Only lacks a glass roof. 17" wheels

A Fun, Rare, And Practical Family Hauler. By Sta8of9

Great Sleeper Suv Alternative That Really Is Sporty By uh2lsaab

Excellent Car By Roger

The engine is quick and the steering response is very good, especially nice when running on ethanol instead of petrol, since that adds another 30hp. Not many other stationwagons can outrun this car wh... Read More
