2005 Saab 9-2X Linear 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I just finished a 5 day drive from Michigan to Alberta in this vehicle, and I would do it again, no hesitation. The car performed admirably, as it has always done. It's been great in the snow (though I thought it was better the first winter;I expect the new tires will help), always reliable, and looks a lot better than the Subaru. The car's Achilles heel is the 4 speed auto transmission. It feels unrefined, and brings the average down a bit. I hoped for better fuel economy (20 city, 26 hwy), and replaced the very weak factory stereo. But over all, it's a great car which I intend to keep for a long time.

Best Features

Swedish style with Japanese reliability, 2-tone interior.

Worst Features

The auto transmission. I think a 5 speed with manual mode is pretty much the norm in this segment.
