Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Quiet ride; Handling; Warranty
Cons: Low armrest in middle...(I bought raised one as accessory)
Advice: Take professional reviews with a grain of salt...Go out and test Saab vs. Subaru for yourself...No comparison...What a great car...Have had mine for only a few days now and a couple hundred miles...Manual tranny; Linear...More than enough power in 2.5L...Great handling...Virtually no road noise...Much smoother ride than Subaru...I tested both and ride in Saab does not compare to Subaru...However...AWD system of Subaru is time-tested and one of the best, so I am extremely happy to have this in the Saab...Can't beat 4yr/50000 mile bumper to bumper warranty as well as 2yr/24000 mile included scheduled maintenance...and getting a loaner car whenever car is in the shop...Hopefully very rarely...and lastly price...Great incentives right now...Paid 19K for base model...
