Sweet car even for a guy in his late 30s

2005 Saab 9-2X Aero 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Love the looks of this car. The rear hatch opens up and fits 6 bags of groceries easily. Automatic Aero off of the line is very slow until the turbo kicks in. Makes up for that as you accelerate from 35 MPH to 75MPH in a hurry. Suspension is perfect for me. Not too tight, but still corners like a stud. The stereo is merely adequate. Meets the needs of most people. Its clear Saab expects you to upgrade the system.
Hi-end power is exciting. The looks aren't boring. Handles beautifully on the road.
Its tinny sounding when you close the door. Power off the line is weak. This car needs 17 inch wheels on all Aeros.
