    Weird - on Vincheck it says Linear 2.3T.
    On the hatch, it says 2.3 T - might be a lower case t.

    What I've found so far does look like 16" though - the current tires are 55R16 (IIRC).

    I need to start shopping around for new tires. I've started reading the wheel and tyre forums here, I'm a bit overwhelmed.

    Thanks Digger!
    I visited my mechanic today and he's got some seats w/memory, which isn't what I have.

    a mount with 11" rise (well, 10.75".
    a 2" ball.

    Drawbar for 22" Trailer

    My club finally went and bought a kayak trailer, which is what my 9-5 wagon was meant for.
    Trouble is, the wagon's coupler rides at 22", and the 1.25" hitch starts at 10" above ground.

    I'm having...

    Hatch won't Latch - 2005 9-5 Wagon

    Last night the paddle wagon decided to do something very strange: I can't close the hatch.

    Can someone post a link or how-to to replace the rear wiper arm on my '05 9-5 wagon?

    Replace MY05 9-5 Key

    I lost one of my keys. Called my shop, $250 to get a new blank and pair it with the car. Sound right?
