Hi, Michael Here are owner feedback from month old 9-5 2.3L (1710 miles): 1) B pillar is a bit too thick (safety?) that sometimes it is blocking driver's side/blind side view. 2) C pillar is a bit too big that blocking your rear view (safety again?) 3) Inside driver door opening handle linkage broke at 1310 miles. SAAB dealer replaced a new one, warranty. 4) Whistle sound from drivers side mirror at above 55 MPH 5) Loud road noise (when comparing with my old Buick Park Ave) 6) Solid engine performance. I love to watch cars get smaller and smaller on my rear view mirror when I go uphill. :-) 7) not too bad sound system, for me :-) 8) haven't seen one on the road 9) No turbo delay 10) no problem with electrical system so far hope this helps.....
