I'm considering a 2001 9-5 wagon with low mileage and a good service history as an around town daily driver. I've had a 900 for 20 years and it's been great. But my dad had a 9-3 a while back that was plagued by a bunch of issues. And my friend has a 9-3 Viggen that's having a lot of problems that I never had on my old 900. Rusting power steering lines, misc. electronic stuff, plastic bits.
Based on my experience with 900s, I'd buy the 9-5 without blinking. But the 9-3s make me gun shy.
If it matters, the car I'm looking at has the low pressure turbo and a 4 speed automatic.
