Great SKI/Biz car by SKIMAN on 08/05/2008. Trim: 2005 Saab 9-5 Aero, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Sporty, aggressive look and feel to the car that tells you this car is no Camry. I have owned 8 saab's over the years and have found them to be very reliable, get good gas milage and are comfortable and fun to drive. The faster you go the better they drive. Where is that autobahn? I have never blown a turbo and never had a major mechanical issue in over 1 million miles of driving Saabs for business and pleasure. My area dealer provides great service when I need it.
Cons: I have founds the built in Navigational system to be difficult to use but I really do not need it anyway. Might want to carry an extra serepentine belt if one breaks as most garages do not carry parts that fit saab's. Resale values on Saab's have not been good lately which is why I buy them used (2 years old) just off of lease and still under warranty off e-bay or other usually at 45% of original MSRP. Great Value!
Overall review: My 2005 9-5 aero has comfortable seats, nice accesories and terrific power and handling characterisitics. It seems to really shine and handle superbly at speeds over 100 MPH on wide open (deserted) western highways. So far the car which has an automatic transmission gets just over 30 mpg on road trips consistantly and at highway speeds of 75 mph+ on average. Great acceleration for passing semi's in tight spots. The silver color is nice. So far at 45k the car has been trouble free like all my other Saab's I have had in the past. A very comfortable, safe car, that also runs great in snow provided the car is equipped with snow tires. Trunk storage is excellent.
