I have a 2002 Acura TL/S, which will get you all the horsepower and torque you need and run circles around a 9-5 SE :-) If you don't need a wagon, go with the TL(S) - one word of caution - this is not an easy car to install a hitch onto due to the design of the dual exhaust system. If you do decide on the Saab, then I think your $27,900 offer is right on the money, dealer should have jumped at it.
