Andrew,, I've Up to about 34,000 miles in approx 18 months (On a 9-5 Aero Estate). Nothing has gone wrong !!! Of course I've gone through some services and tires etc but I guess that was to be expected. Fuel economy has also been a lot better thtn expected and I generally get better thatn 30mpg. Dealer charges are on the higher side but than in my experience so has the workmanship. Hope this helps Geoff "Andrew Stephenson" <amesnopsamrak.demon.co.uk> wrote in message news:1053616127snznopsamrak.demon.co.uk... > I'd be interested to hear what people think of 9-5s, as currently > being supplied new into the UK market.
