About Saab 9-7X

The 9-7X represents something of a philosophy change for Saab, a company that built its reputation producing midsize performance vehicles with off-beat good looks. With no SUV in its portfolio, Saab turned to parent company GM for a quick fix. Borrowing a platform shared by the GMC Envoy and Chevrolet TrailBlazer, Saab engineers have produced a vehicle that looks the part, but falls somewhat short in the areas of ride comfort and engine refinement – at least as expectations of those characteristics might be for a Saab. Still, for Saab loyalists looking for something bigger than a SportCombi, the 2009 Saab 9-7X has much to offer, including off-road and towing capabilities no Saab car can possibly match.

"Super Value. Lots of options for a very low price. The engine is very strong and smooth. The all-wheel drive is great in heavy Texas rainstorms. A recent trip to the mountains allowed for relaxed driving on snow covered roads that would probably be unpleasant, if not impossible, in any two-wheel drive vehicle. The cargo area in back is large and well shaped. The towing capacity beats almost any crossover SUV. There are not too many of these on the road here in Houston so it gets a lot of looks. In black, it is a very handsome car. My list of complaints is small. The back seat is tight. Some of the plastic interior trim looks and feels cheap. The plastic at the bottom of the rear doors and door access is of poor quality and does not fit properly. Gas milage is not great, even on the highway. Overall, this is a very fast all-weather vehicle. If you travel with four people or less most of the time you should include the 9-7x in your vehicle search."

"I have owned over 20 SUV's since the mid 1980's. I traded my third Ford explorer three years and 60k miles ago for the 9-7x. This truck has proven to be a very nice vehicle for everything I need a car for. I love road trips in this car, and would drive it any place any time without a thought. To bad the experts could not see the value in the improvements Saab made on the GM based suv."

"Skip the Garage. Get a hangar for this thing!! This is a great SUV. At first glance, the Saab 9-7x looks just like a Chevy TrailBlazer. At second glance, this is what the Trailblazer should have been. Although based on similar GM SUV's, SAAB engineers put the right touches on this vehicle. The European flare is just enough to set this one apart from the rest. The 5.3-liter V8 pumps out 300hp and you can feel every one of them when you are accelerating. Lot's of room, very comfortable, cool styling and loads of power. Get one and drive it, you will be glad you did."
