Now having driven this 9-7x in two mild snow falls here in Reno I can say that the awd is not suitable for winter driving. The awd will not engage until over 20 mph and when driving 0-20mph you have No awd active and this suv goes where it wants when cornering or trying to start up and incline from a dead start. The 9-7X bucks and fishtails and ends up in about a 60 degree angle before if any help comes from the front wheels pulling. Stay with a true 4x4 with 4high, 4low on the fly option. I am returning mine under the "lemon law". Having spun out 6 times in a 14 mile loop to work. Not Safe At Any Speed in Winter. Also, No Tire Chains allowed per Saab,Usa/GM.
Air Compressor,heated seats,curbside mirror drop down when backing up.
Rework the awd to have a manual on dash control to switch from auto 4 wheel/4 high/4 low. Then this Suv would be a winner instead of a danger to all riding in or other cars around when the roadways have snow/slush/ice present.
