2008 Saab 9-5 Wagon Aero SportCombi 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

This is a great car I got one with 5 spd manual and it is a blast to drive. Aero package is awesome while twisting and turning at speeds. Turbo is great, turbo lug almost non-existent. It is the best value for a station wagon under 40K.


Favorite Features

station wagon with 5 spd manual under 40k. seats are the best in business, aero package is a must the car is glued to the road. Don't believe reviews that claim the car has a body roll, it does not. Night panel (Saab only feature) is great


Suggested Improvements

Better interior materials.

2008 Saab 9-5 Wagon Aero SportCombi 4dr Wagon (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

After driving several fleet Saab 9-5s in Norway, we bought one when moving to Canada. It's roomy, has great pace on the highway and (from the Norway experience) good dynamics on hard pack snow, despite not being 4WD. Comes with lots of great gadgets (for the price) which fortunately do not lead to a profusion of switches and clutter. Only gripe is the easily marked interior plastic surfaces.


Favorite Features

Turbo at highway speeds, front and rear space, big cargo area, dynamics


Suggested Improvements

Interior plastic is easily marked and interior soon looks old. 4-wheel drive would be great!

Review

I have had every car and wagon imaginable and nothing comes close to this. It is fast, fuel efficient, safe, roomy, comfortable and has every convenience possible. Very surprised how well it handles. Saab truly has put a lot of engineering in this car! This car is a real secret.


Favorite Features

Seats, engine, fuel efficiency, runs on regular gas and handling.


Suggested Improvements

More cupholders in front, one-touch automatic windows and sunroof and automatic rear lift gate.
