2005 Saab 9-2X Linear 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
the 2005 Saab Linear is fairly reliable and provides good gas mileage. However this car provides little if any driving enjoyment. I drive 35,000 miles annually and it didn't take long for the negative details of this car to outweigh the positive. The sound system is poor at best, the interior materials are low end economy car quality (I know if is an Impreza, but still) and the ride is noisy (yes, I have tried different tires). These elements coupled with a low fun to drive quotient strikes the Saab off of my future purchase list.
Interior materials quality, incessant new and continuing rattles. Road Noise. Sound System.
