I test drove 9-5 Aero last week, and there was quite a bit of torque steer under hard hard accerlation. I am going to test a 9-3 Viggen this weekend, so I can let you know how that is in comparison, though all the car mags call it the king of torque steer. After the 9-5 I drove a BMW 530, which was a much more solid feeling car, but for me it simply didn't have that low end punch that the Saab Aero has.
