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.

"I bought this vehicle used from a SAAB dealer as a Certified vehicle. I traded in my Hemi Charger R/T for this truck. I needed more room and something to handle the terrible roads in Michigan. I took a 6 cyl for a test drive and found it had lots of torque, but not very refined.Next I tried the 5.3 v8 version out. Wow! Not only did it feel like I had been driving it for years, the performance was awesome. I have always driven performance vehicles my whole life and did not want to sacrifce that for an SUV. I tried them all(BMW,Benz,Porsche,Audi). But for the money the SAAB could not be beat. Quick, agile and responsive.The Air ride keeps the SUV feeling light and smooth.Using the suspension from Cadillac has made it feel more of a car than a truck. The interior is well made and positioned. The Build quality is what you would expect from a high end vehicle. The Cadillac components are everywhere, easy to reach and easy to use. Interior styling is "artsy" keeping true to the SAAB tradition of curse and contrast. Only one(1)problem I have is the quality and positioning of the cup holder in the front. The are nearly unusable because of their placement and size. Not a deal breaker but disappointing. Very happy with my SAAB!!!"

"I have had my 5.3i for nearly 3 years now, and it has been a joy driving it. There are very few Saab's 9-7X' around, and I have seen people check the car out while driving on the road or standing at a light. Would like to see the quality of the interior fittings and materials improve, but otherwise, the best SUV on the road for the money, and stylish too!"

"I have owned this car about 3 months, bought with 86000 miles on it. Bought it to pull a 23 foot light camper. It does great. Mileage is acceptable with all it does and still looks nice when not towing. No complaints other than I really don't know why they are so undervalued, considering the car you get. Have had a lot of people question me about it, surprised to learn its a Saab and what it cost me."
