Subject: Re: Regarding Saab purchase of 9-5


I've got a 2000 9-5 Aero. I purchased the 9-5 Aero over the Volvo S80 and the Audi A6. Turns out that it was the best way to go. The overall build quality of the Saab is the highest in its class, and the repairs are considerably lower than the Volvo and Audi (comparing prices to my buddies who have those respective cars). Plus, no one has a 9-5, making it much more unique on the road. The Saab definitely gives you more for the money. As for getting an Aero... If you are a sports-minded person, really into hard, precision cornering, passing cars with ease, relatively rough ride, then by all means go for the Aero. It really is a classy sports sedan. Try and do the same things on a base 9-5, Linear, Arc, etc., and you will find that you can't do the same things. Good luck. -ME On 11/11/03 1:26 AM, in article yX1sb.5201$fB3.444954nopsam20.bellglobal.com, "ezra" <emoronopsamatico.ca> wrote: > Hi there, I'm new to this group so bare with me.
