Pros

Love the looks of this car. Been a Saab owner for around 10 years. Just bought this one mid august '14, so I'm still learning it. The 2 tone leather seats sold me. As well as the jet black pain with dark tinted windows, xenon headlights, etc. Its just a stellar car.

Cons

Hard to say at this moment. my '02 9-5 was a headache, but i knew it would be (99-04 were some troubled years for saab...). I imagine parts aren't gonna be any cheaper than they were for my previous saabs, and I'm sure they won't be any easier to find. Its all a labor of love...

Hotness — I was looking for an '06 or newer wagon to haul my musical equipment with greater ease. As soon as i saw this one with the color combination, the sport package (aka Aero, since '06 was the only year without an "Aero" badge, even though the vin suggests otherwise), and the visibility package (xenon headlights, parking assistant, rain sensing wipers), I was sold!

Pros

Styling looks like cars 6-7 years newer.  Great gas mileage but with lots of power.  Comfortable ride on long trips.  Lots of leg room for all passengers.

Cons

Some services can only be done by a Saab mechanic.

Better Than Public Preception. — This car gives me features and creature comforts found in $40K cars at a fourth of the cost! Saabs have a distinct sound when running. Whereas with some cars you aren't sure if they're running or not. Not the case with Saabs. Their slogan is "Born of Jets". Totally applies.

Its My Baby — For pure refinement in the pleasure of effort free motoring I highly recommend the Saab 95 2.0ltr Linear Estate its practicle for sleeping in for when the rear seats are folded down there is 8 ft to stretch out in .

Pros

good car overall.  baught it mostly because its a safe car, gets decent milage, not a lot of people drive sabbs so its somewhat unique, xm radio is awesome, moonroof is cool, doesnt need oil changes hardly ever

Cons

seats could be more copfortable, cup holders could be better, when it does need to be fixed parts can cost,

35

Oh I Wish I Had A Muscle Car — Roomy enough, the seats could be more compfortable however. Geat 6 disk cd changer, xm radio, but not so fond of onstar, theyre not always acurate w directions and compass, better invest in a navigation system than talking to the onstar fools. back to the car, drives really smooth, pretty fast and a very safe car. almost wish i got a bmw, but then again am i really that pretentious? really i shoulda got a muscle car from the 60s or 70s :)
