Subject: Re: Help me decide on a replacement car


Believe me I'm biased towards Saab as well. I'm on my 4th Saab, and it is only the lack of a true replacement for the 9k that prompts my question. At some point the upkeep on the 9k is going to be more than is economically worthwhile. I'm trying to head that off at the pass. My feeling is this: I like both cars (9k and Viggen), my wife is blase' on both (even though she has been primary driver on the Viggen), so if we have to get rid of one I don't know which I would get trade in. If only Saab had a 9-5 hatch or a true replacement for the 9k Aero it would be a no brainer, But alas, they don't. I just found out the Mazda Speed6 is sedan only and no fold down rear seats, Based on specs it is about the same size as a 9-5. <SIGH> if only they had a 5 door hatch. It is a 274hp turbocharged 4cyl. And here I thought the 9-5 was the fastest/most HP 4 banger around.
