A local Saab/Volvo shop is having an open house for the 2001 Saabs this Saturday. They had a Volvo dealer bring over some cars for all of the shop's clients to try out. All were silver, turbo, leather, automatic and power everything. I suspect the same will happen when the Saabs are brought in - silver, leather, automatic(I hope not) and power everything. I test drove the Volvos and thought they were all over-priced. I will test drive the Saabs this Saturday and see how they rate. If you are in Northern Virginia, its AutoScandia in Herndon.
