I'd be mad if I paid full price
By Pat on
2005 Saab 9-2X Aero 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
But I spent $8500 off msrp, which makes me very happy. I paid less than my friends WRX. I really don't think it's any more quiet. It's more jarring over ruff pavement (17"?). Automatic is horrible. Aggressive driving is scary because of the automatic. The cloth is better, but gets dirty really fast. The seats don't seem to keep you in place as well. Oddly enough I love my car. Normal driving is pleasant. Side by side looks much better than the WRX. I have an AWD wagon with lots of safety for cheap. Only wish I got a stick, at least until I'm stuck in traffic.
AWD, safety, 4 year warranty, 2 year free maintance, styling.
Get rid of that automatic, get one that is shift yourself or has a sport mode and an extra gear. Material that doesn't get so dirty so fast.
