I read David Thomas' review of the new Saab 9-5 and he needs Prozac to get over the depression he must be suffering from. Dave, you complain about the ride, duh, try the comfort ride switch, it has 3 settings and I found 2 of the 3 to be outright perfect, the sport one was a bit tough. That must have been the one Dave didn't know he was in. The 6 cyl turbo engine had great power and the Cross Wheel drive system made the 9-5 hug the road like a 8 year old with a new puppy. The handling was superb, fuel mileage so far (3000 miles) has been 20 ish around city and 28 on the highway. Alot better than my former A-6. Drove it in a foot plus of snow and never slipped once, my Audi couldn't say that 50% of the time. The seats are nothing short of fantastic, probably the most comfortable I have ever experienced. The only downside to this car and Dave hit Saab on this too was the dash panel has too much plastic. It is not as cheap as Dave makes it sound though. The dealer I bought it from said Saab had a different panel intended for this car but had problems with the supplier in getting it to production. He said it had originally a weaved carbon fibre like dash and said it looked amazing, and was hopeful that Saab would get it back into production. As far as Dave pounding on the price, my Saab ended up costing about $8000 less than the current A-6 with quatro. I think it is a great value for the money. It's bigger than the Audi, drives and holds the road way better, goes better in snow, looks amazing and is like 20% less. Dave I'll drive my new Saab 9-5 to the pharmacy and get your perscription of prozac filled and bring it over and show you what you missed on the Saab.

Best car that I've owned

by from Syracuse, NY on January 23, 2012

I had a 2002 Saab 9-3 and thought that it was a great car. This is a much better car. It's fast, smooth, and the AWD is great in the snow.

Bought 2010 Aero with low miles used. Excellent Value in a used car when compared to MSRP and competitors $$ in this class. Comfortable ride, unique styling inside and out. V6 Turbo provides plenty of power and is really fun to drive on winding back roads. Do your homework on parts, service cost & availibility. Consider a robust aftermarket extended service contract.

great car if you can pick one up used. The basic radio is lame so look for the Nav system- it changes to whole feel of the interior. Otherwise you get a car that is fast, fun and safe. The best part is the looks of envy you get from drivers on the road. They haven't even seen one before and this car looks so sharp that they are jealous they don't have one. Sure there are some cry babies out there that will say their car is better because German blah blah blah. Or that there is too much plastic in the interior. Order the interior upgrade from Hirsch if you must but it is really fine the way it is.

Nicest looking car out there

There aren't many around since Saab only got the opportunity to produce around 11,000 of them before going bankrupt, but one can easily tell that the designers at Saab poured their heart and soul into this car. Owned a '05 9-3 before this, and the 9-5 is by far superior. V6 engine is super powerful, yet very quiet at the same time. It has a really smooth ride regardless of the road surface. Overall feels like a very solid vehicle. Would highly recommend.
