Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Mid-cycle enhancements are just that... significant changes made in a large batch like a new release, even though the car is for the most part the same car... and this happened twice for the 9-5, in 2002, and 2006. Many changes in both, many improvements in both, but also GM cost cutting in both... so imho the original 9-5 was the nicest version, but the later ones were more reliable and better performing (slightly, though all the Aeros are sporty, and variation by model variant is greater than by age)... all are fantastic highway cars!

Overall, these are good safe cars and nothing to be scared of. Main issues are PCV issues in earlier cars, rear suspension if you load them down, and then minor common issues/wear items that are no huge deal to repair (SID, water pump, TB, DIC, fuel pump, etc)...

From google...

2006+ 9-5:



I still find the 2006+ Dame Edna cars kind of ugly, though I don't mind the inside, and in fact almost prefer some aspects of the more GM-influenced controls...

good luck!
