Sometimes there are other considerations besides what's fun to drive or what's A grade or B grade, whatever that means. My wife needed something smooth because of her previous concussion. She did fairly well with her 9-5 and not at all well with the 9000 Aero. She also works with rural folks, so showing up in a Porsche is not going to go over too well. So it was the Outback. We haven't regretted it.
I still have my Viggen. I know what it means to drive a fun car, but I'm 57 now and don't push the gas pedal to the floor so often lately. But despite my not thrashing the Viggen when I drive it, the only car that could replace my Saab would be a Saab, with all the things it does well. I think many of us feel that way - hence the difficulty with choosing a non-Saab when that time inevitably comes.
