Style, Luxury, Performance, Economy and Safety. I know of no other car that does it better than the 9-5 AERO. I used to own a 900S convertible that was just OK. I tested a 9-3 and it was no better than a 900. I tried a 9-5 AREO just for fun and WOW - it was night a day from the 9-3. This rivals my 928 for acceleration and has the comfort that Porsche only dreams of. I'm 6'6 and the Saab is my car of choice for long trips. You want to drive this car everywhere! The FWD and winter traction control make it great in the winters as well. Costs to fix are no greater than any euro car and it needs far less attention than any American car or my Audi Quattro. I wish the LED and cup holder were better made but thats about it. After 5 years of happy motoring I upgraded to a newer AREO. It was a no-brainer.

Keep the car away from stealership repairs and do the maintenance on time and these v6 engines will run FOREVER......FOREVER!!! This is the most comfortable travel car that I am aware of. Far more exciting to drive than any rice burner or cheap American junk I have ever driven, and I have played with, worked on & driven many cars over the past 35 years. If you want the best car for the money, these pretty much beat anything else. I have 3 other Saab's, they are all impressive but the 9-5 v6 turbo is amazing. All get rave reviews from whomever rides with me. Most don't even know what they are. Sad......

Most Reliable Saab

From 2002 until a week ago, I owned a 2000 9-5 Areo wagon, 5-speed manual. Very useful car for a family and a parent who likes a safe but fun car to drive. I've owned five Saabs over the last 25 years, and this one has been very reliable, even better than my first, a 1969 Saab 96.

OK, to start with, if you're going to buy a luxury type car get ready for more costly repairs than a Chevy. Having said that, this car has everything. Comfortable, stylish and high performance. The 40 - 80 passing acceleration of the Aero is simply unbelievable - there are few cars on the road that can touch it. The classy interior, heated/cooled seats, outstanding sound system, sport/winter automatic shift and numerous other cool features makes this the neatest car I've owned, including the Mercedes. And did I mention my average 22 mpg? Go ahead, buy one. You'll smile all the way to work every day.

2000 Saab 9-5

Great car! Commute, camping, coaching, everything it's even the date car! Parts are a bit pricey which is the only bummer! I hope to put another 100K on it

I have had my Saab 9-5 Aero for little over a year after purchasing it used from a local dealer. I have had a few odd problems with it, but overall am very pleased with the performance and handling. I also enjoy the ventilated/ heated seats option because it comes in handy!! I am disappointed in the digital clock/ temperature gauge unit. It cuts in and out whenever it feels like it. Also my Saab symbol has fallen off two different times, each costing $100.00 to get replaced. Overall the vehicle is great for the morning commute and long trips!! I have taken my car to Florida on three different occasions and have no trouble.

I bought this car for my 18 yr old daughter,primarily because of the exceptional safety rating.The previous owner kept it very well maintained with meticulous records.What I didn't know was how much fun it is to drive.My daughter's one complaint is that at every opportunity I take it out to play with and she is "stuck" with my new Escape.

I have a 2000 9-5 SE Wagon that I bought new. It is exceptionally comfortable and safe with plenty of power at all speeds and solid handling. The fit and finish of the interior is very high quality. To me, this is the last Saab model that still really feels like a Saab. GM is steadily draining the life and quirkiness out of the brand. Honestly, if they still made a 900 4-door, I'd prefer to have one, but I'll gladly settle for a 9-5.
