2005 Saab 9-2X Linear 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I had heard Saab was reliable and the new models did have pazazz and class. Wrong. Uncomfortable seats, and from the first I had problems with electrical. After setting for 3-4 days, the battery was completely dead. Then it would be fine for a month or so; then repeat the problem. The dealer was clueless. They replaced the battery and the alternator, which I told them was not the problem. I had a Jeep once with same problem. It was a wiring problem that drained the system. But, they knew best. Finally they offered me an insulting trade down to a used VW with outrageous payments. I took it to Carmax and got a Honda. Carmax is where I now buy all of my cars (Hondas). Great place.

Favorite Features

It looked cute, and when it did start and run, performance was fine. Gas mileage was better than average. AWD feature is nice in snow and mud.

Suggested Improvements

Where to start. I would only note they no longer make that model.
