Vehicle2005 Saab 9-2X Aero 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewThe Saab Aero 92x is just the thing for senior citizens who want to recapture their youthful love affair with high performance automobiles yet not flaunt their second childhood in front of their neighbors. Encased in an attractive, upscale yet conservative, body lies the mechanicals of the firebreating Subaru WRX. This implies wonderfully responsive AWD handling, breathtaking midrange acceleration, near felony range top speed, and good reliability. And when you park the car you go back to being a responsible member of society. The only giveaway is the turbo scoop on the hood. There are few downsides except the requirement for premium gas. This is the penalty for the adventure.
Best FeaturesGood looks, very high build quality, excellent performance, unexcelled AWD handling, service at Subaru, Saab and GM dealers.
Worst FeaturesCould use a few practical accessories as stock items. These include driver's arm rest, better cupholders, cargo bay rubber mat, additional 12 v. outlet. All are featured on comparable Subaru models. Low end torque needs improvement to relieve initial acceleration turbo lag.
