2000 Saab 9-5 2.3t 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car used about 2 years ago with 88,000 miles on it. (My dad purchased a 2000 9-5 aero a few months earlier and I loved his so much I wanted one). It's a fun car to drive, love the sports drive option, and has good overall handling (except in the snow!) Mechanically...I always feel like I'm replacing something! The turbo has gone once already, air filters, struts, brakes, and the oil needs to be changed constantly or the check engine light comes on. The pixels in the dash computer keep going as well and it always reads 'tail light out' even though it's not. My dad has had similar issues with the dash computer and it is expensive to fix. This is a car I hate to love!

Favorite Features

A quick car with great pick up. A smooth ride and great handling. The rear heated seat is a good option.

Suggested Improvements

The black plastic paneling on the doors and bumpers fade and become spotty. AND MORE CUP HOLDERS! The one flimsy one just doesn't cut it if you have other passengers in the car!
