However avoid the first generations of the model, if you for instance want a wagon model start with year 2000 since the earlier years have a rear suspension system that is too weak. Even if the quality of new car models has increased there are still several problems discovered with each new model introduced. It is really a pity that motor journalists are so keen on requiring new models regularly. Here in Sweden they are already complaining about the 9-5 getting too old and needing a replacement model, while the car is now starting to become well-known and infantile problems are no longer an issue for the owner. Thus it is actually a better deal to buy a 9000 of late date than a 9-5 of an early date. -- someguy
