"A fun, comfortable, unique car that has exceeded my expectations...by far!"4.5 starson by mad06
Pros: Comfort, price, handling, fun factor, lots of space, good gas mileage
Cons: Lacks side curtain airbags; strange passenger side-view mirror
Summary: After testing the Lexus IS 250 AWD, Acura TL, Infiniti G35 AWD and Audi A-4 Quattro, I decided to test drive the Saab 9-5. While I enjoyed all of the cars, I found that the Saab had the most to offer for the price. The Saab has lots of standard features (including XM radio, heated leather front and rear seats, fully folding rear seats, free scheduled service...) and is the most comfortable of the bunch. It was the least expensive to lease and was only second to the Audi in fun-to-drive factor. After reading lots of reviews, I think this car is somewhat under-rated. I have had the car for 2 weeks and have taken a 350 mile road trip -- fantastic. The 9-5 may not be for everyone, but is definitely worth a second (or first) look for someone who wants a unique, quality car.
