For what it's worth, I leased my 9-5 SE V6 from Mitchell Saab in Simsbury, CT. It's loaded -- leather, sunroof, heated and ventilated seats. The "cap cost," or the amount the vehicle would have cost if I'd bought it outright, was $36,034.92, taxes included. I found that to be a reasonable amount for the vehicle. My purchase experience with Mitchell Saab was quite satisfactory. And the car is just incredible. If you're looking for a sports car, the 9-5 probably is a bit too lush. If you're looking for a very comfortable sedan that constantly whispers to you, "I can go faster... there are some nice curves ahead... doesn't your right foot feel heaaavvvvyy????".... the 9-5 is a great choice! My only complaint so far is that the trunk opening could stand to be a bit bigger. The trunk would've swallowed the box of our new iMac easily, if there were just an inch or two more clearance in the opening. Saab and Mac... we think different, all right... :) -- Rob Levandowski
