2004 Saab 9-5 Arc 2.3T 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


OMG, what a piece of junk. Bought with 40K miles on it and had the check engine light go on after about 3 months. Cost $2,100 to fix it. Nice. Then the grill flew off as I was driving down the highway. Then it began leaking antifreeze like a sieve. Another $400 fix. I have had enough and will never ever buy a Saab again! Traded that sucka in today for a Lexus and am now super happy.

Favorite Features

Seats super comfortable, stereo, merlot color is pretty hot, outside styling is cool.

Suggested Improvements

Everything is made of plastic and wants to break. Zero storage in the front. The cup holder that folds out from the stereo is a joke, but it's the only one you have unless you use the one in the armrest. Yes, there is one in the armrest for those of you who do not have arms I guess. Turbo also requires premium gas & in this day & age...

Wowie! You've had your Lexus less than a day and you're just super happy. I'm sure it'll either be the greatest car you've ever owned----a gift from God----or it will be worse than the Saab. Fanatic reviews usually indicate that type of swing. I love it----the cup holder is the only one you have----unless you use the one in the armrest. Priceless.
