We needed a new car after my wife's was totaled while parked on the street. We had only owned Subaru, Toyota and Nissan as per their history of reliability, but was informed by a family member about a Saab that was placed in a museum after being driven over 1,000,000 miles, and thought, "that's the car for me!"
Well, to make a long story short, I purchased a beautiful, low mileage 2003 Saab 9-5 Linear with complete service records and for a brief period in time thought I was in car heaven--until the repair expense (items separate from normal maintenance) exceeded what I later learned was to be expected.
After taking personal responsibility to learn more about cars (versus depending upon the advice from well intended family members), I came across the Jetta with the 2.0 turbo engine. The engine is proven and the frame reinforcements on the 2007 model suggested an improved, more quiet ride over the long term. Of course, the proof was in the driving, which did not disappoint.
Here was a car that handled significantly better than the Saab with less torque steer, but more torque and horsepower, and to top it off, better gas mileage.
Tomorrow I take it to the dealer for its 10,000 mile service.
Thus far, I can only report total satisfaction and note the 10,000 mile marker as a fair one to predict that with proper maintenance, who knows, maybe this will be the last car I purchase that runs on fossil fuel.
