"My husband suggested this car and I am so thankful he did. Absolutely the most fun to drive of anything I have ever owned. Bought with 134000 miles and now 164000 and still going strong. Owned now for almost 3 years. New tires, new front springs and a thermostat are the only things replaced. Too bad they aren't making this beauties anymore. I will seek another Saab for my next vehicle if this one ever stops."

Good entry luxury car

"XWD in the Saab handles better than my SUV in the snow and great around corners on dry pavement."

Pros: "Looks, ride, fast, great handling, great seats."

Cons: "Stiff suspension."

"This is the funnest car to drive that I have ever had and I've had Volvo turbo's and a 1969 Camaro. I get compliments every time I put the top down how nice it looks. The Aero option is a must. The suspension is stiff and not good on bad roads and over railroad tracks but on nice roads and when cornering it is a dream. Back up sensors are great for parking. The Nav system is dated but works fine. Oh yeah, it is a bullet off the line from a dead stop."

"This car has bells and whistles that put it over the top. When you get in the driver's seat, it feels and looks like you are in the cockpit of an aircraft (probably because aircraft engineer's designed it). The acceleration is fantastic, the 4cyl turbo gets great gas mileage when you want it to and it handles like a Porsche, BMW or Mercedes. It's solid and my 2004 Aero Convertible turns heads everywhere I go. I've gotten more comments and dropped jaws over this car than any car I've owned. It is very expensive to fix (transmission is over $3000, brakes, 17" tires, water pump, timing belt - all very pricey), but if you can keep some money aside for those trips to the mechanic, you will be living the dream in this car!"
