I Like It — I miss the button dash Saab like my 2006 9-3 that I sold. This one has a very GM dash with the GM radio and the knobs for the climate control look like they come from the GM Europe parts bin.

Pros

cool car to own

Cons

not the build quality in the cabin they once were

Nice Looking And Quick, I Would Have Another One Tomorrow — loads of go in the engine and in my opinion the best styled estate you can buy. some niggles like the odd noise from the dash and the fact its very hard to marry a mobile phone up to its hands free. The best seats I have ever had the pleasure to sit in ,out of ant car I have owned or been in. A great car love it.
