A very positive review of the 9-5 SprortCombi appeared in yesterday's (Sunday, 19 February) _Washington Post_ (p. G-1). The Post's web site requires registration (boo hiss) but the article is very good -- and the summary at the bottom of the article: Purse-string note: There's strong demand for this one, but you have room to bargain. It's a buy. Incidentally, for the first time (that I've seen it) in many, many years in any US general-circulation publication this article includes the phrase from which comes "SAAB": Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget. Elsewhere in the article is an interesting comment: Saab's current "Born from Jets" marketing theme plays off the company's military origins, which, judging from the SportCombi wagin I drove and the public's reaction to it, is a mistake. I would suggest: "Beautiful cars for beautiful people. Saab -- Bringing the World Together," because that is what I experienced driving the SportCombi [in Greensboro, Georgia]. Joe Morris
