Review of the 2005 Saab 9-5

  • A likable sedan in numerous ways, but it lags behind the competition when it comes to providing class-leading luxury or performance. In wagon form, however, its seductive style and superior functionality make it a more attractive proposition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Best-in-class crash scores, long list of standard features, plush highway ride, supportive seats, large trunk.

  • Cons

    Turbo lag at low speeds, suspension too soft for aggressive driving, interior materials could use improvement.

  • What's New for 2005

    An in-dash DVD-based navigation system is added to the options list. Arc models receive a new 16-inch wheel design.

Vehicle: 2005 Saab 9-5 Linear 2.3T 4dr Sport Wagon (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

This is my first car. My mom wanted me to have a Saab because thats all my whole family drives and I wanted something like a sports car because they're cute...but now that I have my car I love it so much...I was in an accident with a Saab 2 years ago and if we werent in that car we probably wouldnt have made it its such a great car I love my Saab!!!




Glitches anyone

Vehicle: 2005 Saab 9-5 Linear 2.3T 4dr Sport Wagon (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

This is my first Saab and maybe my last. I have numerous little annoying things take place. Cruise control stopped wrking for a month, roll over gas tank valve failed - can't pump gas into it, inexplicable oil leak & resulting engine knock, failed starter module - would not start, Auto setting for AC does not work consistently. But other than that the car has been great. 26k in 10mos on an 04 9-5 Wagon 2.3T. The car drives great, suspension is softter than my wife's Volvo XC70 - I would prefer less dive & roll and firmer, but it drives beautifully and gets 28-29 mpg on my 110mile commute. My stock Pirelli P6's grip well and quite.

8. No (9-5), Yes (9-3). The cup holder on the 9-5 is lightyears better than the piece of **** in the 9-3. Saab has heard us and made the appropriate changes to the 9-3 and it looks very promising....
