Born from Jets and like Jets it needs constant care by HawaiiChief in Monterey, CA on 12/28/2006. Trim: 2000 Saab 9-5 Aero, Owned 3 years.
Pros: The best car I have ever driven - when it's working! Great acceleration, speed, nice interior, and a sharp looking vehicle. Everyone who had a chance to drive my Saab considered getting one for themselves.
Cons: ALWAYS IN THE SHOP! Stalled multiple times for different reasons - sensor, transmission, direct ignition cassette. On one occasion a transmission part had to be ordered from Sweden because there was none in the U.S. Took five days to arrive. The car should be serviced by a dealer or a trustworthy and experienced Saab mechanic, even for oil changes. Anyone else might cause additional problems.
Overall review: I had a love-hate relationship with this car. When something went wrong with it, it was a major thing and had to go into the shop to be fixed and the repairs were expensive. When the car was running it was a thing of beauty to drive. I'll buy another Saab when their reliability improves.
