Review of the 2002 Saab 9-5

  • Not quite as polished as some of the class leaders, but still worthy of a test drive if you're looking for a luxury sport sedan/wagon that won't get lost in the crowd.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Satisfying performance, impressive luxury, reasonable price, wagon availability.

  • Cons

    Quirky Saab design attributes and ergonomics, uninspired exterior styling.

  • What's New for 2002

    Although it looks similar to last year's model, the 2002 9-5 has undergone extensive changes. There are now three distinct models, each with its own look and feature content. A new five-speed automatic transmission is available on all models, while the top-of-the-line Aero gets more power. Revisions to both the steering and suspension systems increase performance, while a new electronic stability control system and adaptive front airbags improve safety.

Vehicle: 2002 Saab 9-5 Arc 3.0t 4dr SportWagon (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 5A)

My wife and i have driven the car for the past 3 months and put 5k on the car. Having driven Volvos for the past 16 years, I found the Saab extremely satisfying with its no nonsense interior design, power and functionality. Having driven Maxima's in past, this car is by far the most favarite so far. We hope that it lasts as long as. Prior to purchase, we also test drove extensively Volvo S80 and V70 turbo. Deciding on this Saab was a no brainer
