Subject: Opinions about new SAAB 92x

Hello everyone, I am currently in the market for a new car. I am looking at the new volvo S40 (AWD T5 version), the SAAB 92X (Turbo AWD version) and the Subaru WRX (not sti). From my research all 3 cars appeal to me and are up my budget. I have heard that the SAAB is merely a Subaru WRX engine with a SAAB body - is that true? If it is true.......would current 92x owners recommend buying the Subaru for about 1k less? Out of all 3.....the Volvo appeals to me the most......but with the options i want (like moonroof etc)......the price is going over my budget. I have also never owned a SAAB and so I am interested to hear opinions/concerns about its reliability etc. I generally tend to keep cars for at least about 6-7 years.......My current Honda has about 120K miles and is 7 years old and has served me really well with respect to realibility. So my 2 main factors are I want a car thats fun to drive (I think all 3 above models would be fun to drive) but at the same time gives me the reliability i want. Just wanted to get opinions from die hard SAAB fans on what i can expect by owning a swedish car for about 6-7 years. Thanks, Pumba
