"I love this car. I purchased it at around 176xxx for $1,800 a year or so ago. It is very responsive and squeals tires through 2nd gear and sometimes a glimpse of 3rd. Ever since I bought it though, I replaced: the radiator, drivers side control arm, air filter, Direct ignition cassette, clutch, slave cylinder, fuel pump, starter relay, Turbo by-pass valve, Crankshaft position sensor, Valve cover gasket, struts, and need a new exhaust system pretty badly. But I knew I would run into a generous amount of work when I bought it considering the miles and lack of mechanical history. This car does me good, sounds good, drives good, the stopping power is amazing on it, nice tight steering, power, response, I get approx 23.5 MPG averaged over interstate and town driving. Generally get around 26-27 interstate and `18-24 in town.(depending on how one drives) I plan on keeping this car when the engine blows and replacing it with a 2010 Saab 9-5 aero v-tech 2.3L V4. There isn't much to customize aftermarket wise, but what you can replace on it, makes it unique."

Pros: "fun to drive, nice sound system, turbo!, big trunk"

Cons: "small cupholder. could get better mileage."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Fun to drive. turbo is nice. cupholder is too small. leather is always nice. could get better mileage but for a 2005 with a turbo its not unreasonable. was reliable for me. handles really well. roomy. good car for vacations and road trips. big trunk. great sound system. nice stock bass. horn is pretty feminine sounding. saab could put a little more effort into changing the aesthetics of their models. all the same basically, but hey thats what sets them apart. overall decent car that holds up for a long time. just be wary of mechanics being in your area that know how to work on them."
