2007 Saab 9-5 SportCombi User Reviews
- Good fuel economy, many accessories standard, handles great, nice cockpit layout, interior comfort
- lacking cup holders, annoying rattle behind instrument panel, molded mud guards not available
I went from a large SUV to the 2007 9-5 Aero Sport Wagon roughly four weeks ago. Great decision on my part. I thoroughly checked out all the so-called competition and I felt the Saab wagon 9-5 won hands down. The lower cost vehicles just didn't compare and the higher cost vehicles didn't have anywhere near enough added value in oder to justify the substantial extra cost. One might say that all-wheel-drive is a must, but I find the front wheel drive is just fine and you benefit from added gas mileage as well. I'm extremely pleased with the car overall. I don't live at the gas station anymore. The comfort is great and it handles like a sports car. The cargo area is bigger than anything in it's class with extra storage under the cargo floor. The only two minor things I have to complain about, is the lack of front area usable cup holders and an annoying rattle behind the instrument panel. I haven't owned the vehicle long enough in oder to comment about maintenance. I personally recommend the Aero version over that of the basic; much sportier. As a personal observation; the navigation system offered by Saab and it's competition is a complete rip-off unless you have money to burn; you're way ahead of the game just to purchase a portable GPS separately....read morehide

- Great seats, good fuel economy in cruise mode.
- Rough ride due to low profile tires; kiddy cart instruments.
I drove the 2007 Aero Sport Combi which, compared to the base model, has upgraded suspension, high speed tires, 260HP engine and bigger brakes. The low profile tires were quite rough over pavement patches and bumps in city drivinng. Performance was excellent, roaring to 60 MPH in about 6 seconds but with a good deal of noise. I did not get it out on the highway, but based on owning two previous Aeros, I'm sure it would be a great high speed cruiser and awesome two lane passer. Technologically and in overall packaging, SAAB is lagging compared to its Swedish cousin, Volvo, which has the V70 R wagon packaged in an aggressive and distinctive body style rather than just a tacked on nameplate such as the Aero. Pricing was a surprise as the sales guy immediately offered me $6000 off the $41,000+ sticker without my asking, consisting of $3000 GM incentives, $1000 dealer discount and $2000 owner loyalty. I'm sure with a little haggling I could have done better. In addition, GM offers zero percent financing for five years to help offset the SAAB's terrible depreciation once driven out the door....read morehide
