The Saab 9-5 is the sedan's first redesign in years. The design is refreshing because it doesn't look like every other midsize luxury sedan on the road.
I bought my first Saab this year after 40 years of BMW cars,my first car.This Saab lives up to my expectations as an enthusiast driver.At 98K miles the 9-5 SE wagon was a bargain at $4900. or even twice that with a sticker in 2002 of over $40K This has to be one of the best deals on the market.Once you understand the quirks and GM inspired design flaws like A/C vent doors not opening or closing properly ,which I have fixed, I expect this car to outlast my desire to push it to its limit.By the way ,this thing is fast, faster than my 535i BMW.I like the idea of being able to punch it at 40 mph and keep up with a Mustang or Corvette and walk away from all the rice burners.I like the idea but hopefully will not try to act on it with any regularity.I hope Saab can work out their finances and live to continue to make great distinctive cars in a world where almost all cars look the same and wear out long before you can pay them off.
