Was nice until Saab went bankrupt

2008 Saab 9-5 Aero 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


40k MSRP new, its lost $27k trade in value in 4 years. Thanks for going bankrupt SAAB, now our car is near worthless and we're upside down on the loan! There are no replacement parts, there are no authorized service dealerships in the USA anymore, and there's nobody who is willing to buy this car off us at a reasonable price (because it's unreasonable to want a car that you won't be able to fix when something breaks).

It drove fine, has quite a few features but it's become an antique in just 4 years. All the new cars out now have nice touchscreens and bluetooth and backup cameras.

Worst Features

We constantly got comments that we had a reverse light out, because SAAB decided to only put a reverse light on the left.. Stupid. The door handles started PEELING, like black plastic coating just started peeling off and looking like CRAP. NO DEALERSHIP for repairs = it didnt get repaired! Hail damage on our car and no place to get a new hood and trunk meant they could only try to do paintless dent repair, which is GARBAGE compared to getting a brand new part which any other car would get with a ton of hail dents. Sell it now before you lose more value!
