Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
The 9-5 was updated extensively for 2006. The 2007 version gets only minor changes, including the introduction of a special edition with new Ice Blue metallic paint, unique leather trim and 17-inch wheels.

Offered in sedan and SportCombi wagon form, modifications include new sheet metal, chassis and powertrain enhancements, and revised instrumentation. All trim levels are powered by a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that generates 260 horsepower.


Exterior
A visibility option package includes xenon headlamps, rain-sensing wipers and rear park assist. For 2007, an Aero option package replaces the Sport package. The Aero includes a sport chassis, sport seats, metallic interior trim and Aero badging.

Standard wheels on all trims measure 17 inches in diameter.


Interior
The 9-5 can seat up to five people. Upright chairlike seating permits comfortable posture, and leather-upholstered seats are standard. A new audio system includes MP3-play capability, XM Satellite Radio and an in-dash six-CD changer. Dual-zone automatic air conditioning and front and rear heated seats are standard.

Saab's Dynamic Workload Manager feature can briefly suppress dashboard warning messages when appropriate, while the Night Panel function can shut off primary instrumentation — aside from the speedometer — at night. Both systems are intended to reduce driver distraction.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
