176,000 Miles And Still Going Strong — We custom ordered this 9-5 arc from Sweden in 2004 and after 176,000 it is still going strong. Mobil1 0w 40 every 5,000 miles and routine transmission fluid flushed are the key. This is a great family/sports/luxury car that has been very reliable. Only had to replace the throttle body and ignition casset. Great car and I would highly recommend it.

Saab's Best Model — Overall I am very pleased with this car. Having replaced my 2001 9-5 I had expectations that were certainly met with this next generation model. Missing only the overhead aviation light, this model retained many of the old 9-5 features I was expecting. It is disappointing that this car didn't survive. Very fun to drive and the complements from other drivers never end.

Pros

it really stands out between the traditional exec saloons, especially now they are no longer produced

Cons

steering, interior details, engine noise

My Future Collectors Item;-) — exterior styling: wow! interior styling is nice but fit and finish +choice of materials not premium quality handling quite good for such a big car, steering a bit deadish ride could be improved, seats very confortable - as in any saab engine refinement is poor,too noisy, in fact the worst diesel engine I had in 12 years (a 1999 bmw diesel was by far superior!)

Slightly Pricey, But Great Performance By Lee

Beautiful, fast, and smooth. The 2.3 engine puts out 265hp, and the turbo has little to no lag. Smooth performance anywhere in the RPM range. Read More
