2005 Saab 9-2X Linear 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
You get everything you expect from a Subaru with some extra creature comforts and Saab style. The AWD is fantastic in inclement weather and handling and highway ride is impressive. My chief complaint is the performance of the automatic transmission. It tends to be sluggish around town and slow to kick down, especially from third gear. Family requirements necessitated an automatic, but I'd recommend the 5spd manual. Overall build quality is good, but the exterior paint chips easily and some of the interior materials could stand improvement. Two tone fabric looks slick, but stains show readily. Rear seat leg room is limited, so adult passengers may be uncomfortable on longer trips.
Favorite Features
AWD; 2.5L boxer engine; reliability; steering feel; handling; seat comfort; exterior styling
Suggested Improvements
More responsive automatic transmission; better paint quality
