Rockin' Pocket Rocket
By Aaron Clow on


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


As soon as I found out Subaru was making a Saab, I had to have one. Subaru reliability + saab styling/tuning have lived up to promise. Zero issues in 15000 miles so far. I always felt safe, even going out in the heavy snows last winter here in NY. Love the sound of the flat-4 with the windows down.

Best Features

FUN FUN FUN to drive! Torquey engine (non-turbo... turbo seemed slower until up to speed when I test drove), not a lot of them out there, better styling than the WRX...

Worst Features

Better fuel economy (I know this is a 2.5L AWD boxer-based auto, but I'm averaging 22mpg), better stock stereo and moderate redesign of boy-racer-meets-econobox interior would be nice... Be a little more generous with "free service" -- basically only oil changes every 7500 miles..
