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

Review

I have had 17 Saabs of all variants since 1966. The Aero is the fastest safest and the most attractive of all. It has all the useful gadgets with out too much trendy clutter. audio is outstanding. The 235x17 tires, P6, are a bit noisy is a compromise for great performance. I am happy to get the final version of the 9000-95 evolution.I have had 2 of each. The orig. 86 9000T, a 91 9000T, a 01 95t Arc and now the 98 Aero. The 2.3 turbo remains a great motor, better than most 50% above its size. The Aero joins my 07 93, 74 Sonnett,73 96 v-4 and 68 96 v-4 in the driveway.

Favorite Features

Power, seats, audio, handling, great attention driver access to controls,vented seats are cool.Black paint looks great in this style w/ the chrome.The appearance is stunning enough That 2 BMWs and the newest Jag owners asked if it was the NEW Saab in one afternoon.

Suggested Improvements

The interior metallic look door trim strip is easily marred. A poor choice ate a trendy look. Some one could make $s with an aftermkt. overlay.Everything is familiar purposeful and well made. A truly outstanding car
