Comfy Commuting Barge, Cheap To Buy. — Reasonably brisk in everyday driving, no squeaks or rattles at 120K miles, quite nice looking when clean, too thirsty really. I had the engine out and changed the camchain etc when I bought the car so although it has cost me a little money it should go on for years, if I don't get too bored in the meantime.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable and effortless

Cons: fuel consumption

Nice Alternative To Bmw, Audi, Mercedes — Surprisingly quick for a big car and very comfortable for long distances. Mainly solid build let down by a couple of poor switches. Bit plain looking but I like the sleeper look. Very reliable, only ever serviced it and replaced a wheel bearing. Not really a rewarding drivers car but is fun scaring Porsches!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Effortless turbo performance, comfort

Cons: Not got the image of German luxury cars

Depreciation Wrapped Up In Shinny Bells And Whistles! — Fun car to drive especially when the TURBO kicks in. Interesting to see others try to find the key hole. POS as it relates to the quality for it was a nightmare. Cost of ownership is so expensive that I had to get rid of it. After 50K miles, you might as well drive it off a cliff.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: FAST

Cons: POS- Too much $$$ for the maintenance

Not Too Shabby — 2.3 L Turbo gives lots of power...but it was really not too much fun to drive. Hit gas, go fast...no feel to the car at all. Definitely built for comfortable speed. Looks are unique to Saab as are the cup holders. If only it held around that corner on my last drive......

Pros: Cozy as all get out, quick, and unique

Cons: Not too much fun to drive

What? — It has solid acceleration. It is very reliable and has good handling. You can really feel the turbo around the upper RPMs. It is very fun to drive because it handles like a dream and has an extremely smooth ride.

Pros: Awesome

Cons: None

Saab 9-5 — it has a rebuilt transmission that is the smoothest you will find. it has a nice and loud turbo and the upgraded exhaust kit on it. the windows are tinted all the way around the car as dark as possible. the interior is tan leather all around. it gets around 21 mpg. overall this is a great car

Pros: all

Cons: none

Great Family Car With Sweet Handling And Awesome Highway Cruising Feel — Have had this car for over five years now with minimal trouble and lots of fun driving. The handling compared to the other cars in this class (Volvo, Subaru, etc.) is superior and that largely sold me. On the highway, it is really sweet. Very stable, with more than adequate acceleration (I have the 6 Cylinder). I have long been a fan of the wagon's styling as well. Very clean design that they have kept for a long time, but with minor tweaks still seems modern.

Owner for 5 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:12,000

Pros: Handling, Highway stability, High speed acceleration, practical cargo space, styling, aggressive stance, great stereo

Cons: Can't think of any
