I actually like the firm ride, but I haven't had the chance to take it on a long trip yet. See below. Last summer, we had planed to buy a new Ford Winstar. We carry a huge pile of stuff. A van seemed to be the ideal solution. My wife and I took one out for an extended test drive but we couldn't get excited. Then on the way home, we both realized our 11 year old SAAB with original shocks rode better than a new Windstar. Later, our local SAAB dealer let us try out a one year old 9000CS. We were hooked. The car is a real spoiler. The low pressure turbo engine is the finest I have ever driven. The leather seats feel great. The hatchback means we can still carry all our junk. Now, if I could pry my wife's hands of the steering wheel so I can drive it too. /Bob
