Aero Sport Suspension vs Regular Suspension Posted by Matt Grimes [Email] (#2198) [Profile/Gallery] (more from Matt Grimes) on Tue, 19 Sep 2017 17:01:57 Members do not see ads below this line. - Help Keep This Site Online - Signup
Being a Saab enthusiast seems to come with the desire to add more to the stable. I've been thoroughly enjoying my recently purchased classic 900 turbo convertible and have even found a identical parts car which is now stowed in the garage awaiting my attention.
I am presently searching for a 9-5 to replace my old tired Buick that I use as a daily driver. I have a lead on a 2007 9-5 Aero that looks like a pretty good deal but I would appreciate some feedback on what to expect from the Sport Suspension in terms of ride quality. The car is a two hour drive from where I live so I don't want to waste my time driving over and find out it rides extra firm.
I have test driven an '02 9-5 that was the base model and it had a very nice ride but numerous undisclosed issues that ruled it out.
So, I know this is a very subjective thing but just how much firmer is the Sport suspension? There was a day I wouldn't have cared about the ride and been more thrilled with the handling but these days I confess I like the softer ride and don't really drive that aggressively.
For comparative purposes I've owned a BMW 540 and a Mercedes S420. Of the two I preferred the way the Mercedes rode.
