2011 Saab 9-5 Turbo4 Premium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


My black 9-5 with the Turbo4 premium 18" wheels is just beautiful.
Much better looking than the A6 or the new 5 series.
And, unlike the A6, 9-5 can be had with a 6 speed manual.
It's a big, rock-solid car with lots of sport: firm suspension, good steering.
It drives much smaller than it is.
On the highway the car is buttoned down and whisper quiet.
Saab offers a factory authorized power upgrade that brings torque to 300 ft/lbs.

Also, car has tons of tech in cabin and engine has the fancy upgrades: direct injection and twin scroll turbo, so 33 mpg HWY so far.

Needless to say I am extremely happy!

Best Features

Look: exterior and wheels, size with big back seat, 6spd manual and 300 ft/lbs of torque, very solid and very quiet, and good gas mileage.

Worst Features

a few software bugs in infotainment system that I haven't bothered to get fixed yet.
