So my mom just totaled her classic 900, and of course walked away unhurt. She hit some slick pavement at only 25 mph and went off the road, tearing up the undercarriage and denting the hood. We have been an all-Saab family since 1987 (Dad had c900, 9000, now 9-5; Mom had c900; brother has c900; I have an ng900).
She looked at VWs, Saabs, and Audis this weekend and decided she preferred the A4 to the 9-3 because she thought the interior was better-designed. She readily admits that the A4 is extrememly mundane in its exterior styling. I thought I remembered reading postings or articles that indicated the A4 wasn't as solid as it feels on first drive. Anyone got any ammunition for me to use?
Any arguments about performance or handling will be lost on her; she's 55 and drives like she's 10 years older. But I'd love to hear why others on this board made the decision for a Saab over Audi. Thanks.
