nice awd wagon for cheap money
By old_wrx_owner on
2005 Saab 9-2X Linear 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I owned a 2001 wrx sedan and loved it (until the turbo lag got to me). i replaced it with a 325xi sedan. but my dog-toting lifestyle demands more space then a 325xi has, so i needed a wagon. i didn;t want to spend much but i needed awd. thanks to the gm employee discount, i got a 9-2x linear for $17,300. so far the car has been great. i drove it from Texas to New York and back (4,300 miles) and it didn't even burn any oil! the brakes are a little mushy just like the ones on my wrx.

more saab-like interior. better shifter. better radio. better brakes. a little more sound insulation for the engine.
