2000 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo 4dr Sedan


I love this car. It's quick, gets good fuel economy and looks expensive. The mid-range acceleration of this car is amazing and there's no turbo lag. I like how the engine is 2.3 liters instead of 2.0 because it makes it so there's not as much lag and the car doesn't have to rely on the turbo as much so the power band is much more linear. If you get this car make sure you get the Aero. It's the best model. It gives you 230 HP according to Saab (But it's been said to be more like 250) and 258 lbs. ft. of torque. It feels even quicker than that though and it can really handle in the corners as well. The steering quickness and feel is excellent and it provides good road and even engine feedback!

Best Features

Ventilated seats, Heated back seats, Cooled glove box, Fold down rear head restraints and 2 sun visors (one for front and side.) The overall car has a very old school feel to it and it feels special.

Worst Features

Shorter throw gearbox and less boost leaks.
