Great Family Cruiser with Solid Handling and Road Feel
I have owned my 9-5 Arc Wagon for over five years and have found it to be an excellent car for both hauling my family and enjoying the road. I bought it new, but it had been sitting on the lot for quite some time so I was able to purchase it for under $30K pre-tax back in 2002. The 6-cylinder turbo engine and Aero wheels they threw in make it a lot of fun. I especially love high speed highway cruising -- this car is a rock and feels so solid at 80+ MPH. Still has plenty of pick up at any point when you need to pass slower cars.
I have had very few maintenance issues other than some expensive standard servicing, like my recent 60,000 mile check up. The Saab dealership recommended a lot of work as "preventitive maintenance." I have also dinged up my 17" wheels pretty badly over the 5 years I've been driving. Nothing you can do about that when driving around Maryland roads.
