2005 Saab 9-2X Aero 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Loved the idea of the WRX wagon, but couldn't get past the ugliness of the thing--the bug-eyed look wasn't for me. What I hoped for was a decent horsepower, better-looking, but similar sized AWD mini-wagon. Found it--the Saab-icized WRX--or, as I desribed it to everyone, a better WRX---quieter, better looking, better interior, but with the same great 230hp AWD chassis (and reliability) that Subaru is famous for. Really like the car--few nits are some early rattles (to be covered under warranty), but overall, a blast to drive. Love that you don't see one every 10ft. Easy to add 30hp with chip reprogram. A stealth mini-missile, with upscale badging. Gotta love it!

Favorite Features

AWD, HP

Suggested Improvements

Tighter shifting, less turbo lag (2.5 liter, please), bump to 250hp, slightly lower greenhouse (profile is still a little ungainly).
