2005 Saab 9-2X Linear 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Bought the last 9-2x Linear available in the city. Even without the turbo, this car with 5-sp manual is a blast to drive.
Handling and performance. Without the turbo this car is not a rocket, but it's quick enough. Very little body roll in corners - suspension is very tight and handling is superb. Two-color leather seats are nice. Bulletproof reliability reputation of Subaru, creature comforts of Saab.
Cup holders are almost useless. Center armrest is too low (without the optional extension). Suspension is pretty harsh, but making it softer would increase roll in corners.
