I am in the market for a new car, have always owned Volvo's, but I just do not like the new S80. I've been considering a BMW 528, but hesitating....I fear it's not great value, and not a wise choice for winter driving. Yesterday, I test-drove a Saab 9-5. I really liked it, and was surprised by its comfort, power, and handling. The only thing I didn't care for was the ignition location (do you get used to this?) and the awkward location of the window controls. Also, there seemed to be a bit of a blind spot when I looked over my left shoulder. For some reason, I don't know anyone who owns a Saab, but it seems that people love them.... any pro/con opinions and/or advice would be really helpful. Thank you.
