Beauty meets power
By Zach Leighton on


1999 Saab 9-5 2.3t 4dr Wagon


This car is fast, the sport button was always on for me, and you can tell when the turbo kicks in, giving you the rush of adrenaline. The interior is creamy and extremely comfortable, it is also the best looking wagon on the road. It is also the safest car on the road, I got hit at 60mph on the drivers side and nobody was even scratched! The only problem was the turbo not being cooled enough and breaking at around 70kmi.

Best Features

Turbo on the onramp or left lane driving, heated seats

Worst Features

Turbo cooling problems should have been diagnosed before it was released in '99.
