9-5 SportCombi Aero

by sportcombi from NYC | July 10, 2014

This is my second 9-5 wagon. We had an 04 Arc wagon which kept us safe in a three car pileup on 93 outside of Boston. The 09 is an Aero model which doesn't have as plush a ride as the Arc. Still nice but firmer. You feel the bumps more. Less body sway, tighter turns, more connected road feel. Rides lower than the Arc as well as having 17" rims vs. 16". Interior is very nice although not as nice as the previous generation. Super comfortable seats. Warmer than the Arc's pancake style seat as they hug your body more. Simpler radio controls as well as AC than previous generation. Gets 29mpg on curvy country roads. Should be able to see low thirties on highway. Car is significantly quicker than my 04 was. Extra 40hp might factor into that a bit.

Saab 9-5 aero

by Euro sports saloon from Providence, RI | September 12, 2011

This is my 3rd Saab. I have a 9-5 wagon, and I had a 9-3 sports sedan. This one is a 2009 9-5 Aero sedan. It is fast (especially in the passing range) and has great torque from the high output turbo. The ride comfort is superlative. Amazing heated and vented seats. Great visibility with self leveling xenons. Stereo is by Harmon Kardon. Cavernous trunk, great interior space. Materials are decent, but not quite as nice as my 2005 wagon. Price on a pre-owned model with factory warranty is amazing. It is a great sport touring car. Seats five in all day comfort. The 9-3 was sportier, even in base trim, but the 9-3 felt like a toy by comparison. The 9-5 is fast and stable at higher speeds. This car loves tight sweepers and shines in the 80-110 mph range. This is a great car. When looking to buy I shopped against MB C300, Audi A6 and Cadillac CTS.

Great car for the money Somebody needs to buy Saab

by Sports sedan driver from Brooklyn, NY | January 16, 2010

I bought a 2009 Jet Black Saab 9-5 Sedan 2.3 Turbo & traded in a 2006 Cadillac CTS. There is a lot to like about the 9-5. I did get a great deal with a large rebate. Irregardless, the 9-5 is a very good and safe car. It would be a real shame if Saab went out of business because GM did not do a good job marketing Saabs. My 9-5 is the best new car I have owned after new CTS, Grand Cherokee, Outback, Camry, 2 Accords, & 320i. It is very responsive with a tight turning radius; burns Regular gas, not premium like most competitors; has Xenon headlamps, electronically folding mirrors, heated front and back plush leather seats; the largest trunk in its class, very nice Harman Kardon CD system with 9 speakers. The 260 hp direct-injected turbo 4 cylinder is the engine that is now the rage. The ride is very good & it is very stately even though it has not changed since 2006. Somebody needs to wake up and buy Saab.It truely competes with and beats BMW 3s & 5s, Acura TL, MBs, Audi 6s, Lincolns, and CTSs. My only complaint is only one cupholder upfront.

Great performance wagon

by Pot Pie from Portland, Maine | February 8, 2009

Have Combi Aero. Overall good, despite jittery ride, steep depreciation and turbo lag. Good car to buy under a certified program. Good storage (73 C.F. w/seats folded)roof racks that take Thule system, 7 sec. 0-60 and great brakes. Aero package good value. Scored reliabiliy 3 due to 2 battery failure in year 1, dealer blames GM battery. That is only problem. Love it!
