Fun to drive...expensive to fix
By gohard on
Vehicle2001 Saab 9-5 SE V6t 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 4A)
ReviewI bought my Saab 2001 used with 20k miles in 2004, now has 98k miles.
It has been a great dog mobile and triathlon equipment car.
I have a love/hate relationship with the Turbo.
It has gone once already as has the battery, brakes, cup holder, lights (frequently), electric panel, A/C, etc.
I have easily spent over $10k in repairs.
The ignition is in a terrible place and the car has turned off when a larger person passenger accidentally bumped the ignition.
I thought it was a lemon but from reading other reviews this is typical of this model.
I had hoped to drive it forever but I don't think it will last that long. The interior is nice but I won't buy a performance vehicle again.
Best FeaturesTurbo, V6, interior, versatility of back seat positioning, heated seats, cruise control
Worst FeaturesGeneral reliability, move ignition to steering wheel; oil usage; turbo reliability
