2005 Saab 9-2X Aero 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Buy this car for what it is; a
rebadged Subaru with a little Saab
improvement (sound deadening, etc.).
The exterior is unmistakable for the
WRX Wagon and the interior is Subaru,
through and through, with chaep
plastic everywhere. I was very
disappointed at the lack of power
seats, steering wheel stereo controls,
etc. The car has to be punished to get
all of the 227 HP out of it and it
does have a lot of body roll, though
less than the WRX. The only reason to
justify spending more money on this
car than the WRX wagon is the upscale
Saab name and a little tighter
suspension. Other than that, save a
couple grand and buy the WRX wagon.
The fact that you can get a sporty all-
wheel drive wagon with 227 HP, manual
transmission, and a premium name, all
for less than $30K.
For Heaven's sake, if you're going to
sell something as a Saab, at least
spend some effort upgrading the cheap
plastic and low-grade materials all
over the cabin. Make an ST equivalent
