Subject: Re: Opinions about new SAAB 92x


I took a look at the 9-2X and it's ok but it's just a little nicer than the Subaru but that isn't saying much. They both have that cheap plastic feel interior and I just didn't like it. The reviews on the WRX say it's a great car to drive and the X was fast but I just wasn't going for the plastic feel. I've been in a Volvo and the interior is a LOT nicer...not sure how it is to drive. Another option is to get a used (errr...."pre-owned") 9-3 Viggen that is an absolute rocket and a lot less. Interior is light years ahead of the 9-2X/WRX, looks killer, tons of room, and corners very well. My only beef is the torque steer which was solved with a Viggen Rescue Kit. I have been sooooo happy I made the decision to buy a Viggen and not a 9-2X. I saved a ton of money and got a bullet of a car.
