    I miss all my Saabs. When I bought this 9-5, my previous Saab was a 2006 Saab 9-3. I never really liked the 9-5 before but figured to give one a try anyways. The 9-3 and 9-5 are very different vehicles. Especially the earlier model years of the 9-5 have a great feel of quality. Both interior and exterior. The leather was soft and smelled wonderful and this was just a great combination with the wooden interior bits. And I really like that Sun Green color as well.

    It had a few issues like engine surging, had the oil slush issue, needed turbo replacement and a few other repairs. This 2001 was replaced with 2005 9-5 Aero. Still good interior quality but the 2001 was even better.

    Sorry about the V40 seeking some exposure with the OG estate and NG saloon.

    It's back! (Thanks to Henrik Blom! Although if I would have to redo it I would probably send the LED bar to be repaired instead of doing it myself, luckily I did not need to replace the inner LEDs )

    This is is my fifth Saab, and I adore it. I couldn't quite swing the $43,000 price when it was new (I was 21, I think my insurance would have cost more!) but I found this on eBay last year, and my fiancé – I'm so lucky! – just clicked "Buy It Now" and I think I screamed with happiness so loudly that he may still be deaf in that ear! We flew halfway across the country the following weekend, picked it up, and drove it the ~800 miles home that night. We've been just repairing things as they go wrong – it's 17 years old, it could drive itself, I cannot expect a perfect car but this is the perfect car for ME. I just had to be patient.

    Take care of your Saab and it'll return the favor. My first had between 250,000 and 300,000 miles on it when someone hit a patch of ice and totaled it for me. I didn't care about the dent and wanted to drive home; he had a LOT more damage and wanted to make a claim – I bet his rates went up, all over a $300 car. Last thing: I had a 1999 9-3 base model convertible, and in 2004, another inattentive driver hit me from behind, and the police investigator estimated that he was going ~45 mph. I had to kick my door open from the inside so I could get out and go scream at him (I watched it all happen in my rear view mirror and it's terrifying when you just have to watch it happen, but a school bus was in front of me, and he pushed me into it). I was really yelling at him, because I was angry that the kids had to go through that on the bus, and I realized that I was completely uninjured. I had bruised forearms from the airbags later on, but my Saab protected me.

    If you can still find find a good, well cared-for specimen, snag it. They don't make cars like these anymore. Probably never will. A shame.

    2009 9-3 Aero Convertible 2.8T Auto (current) Previous: '71 99 Sedan, '74 99 Combi, '85 900 Combi

    My 2009 Aero convertible. This is my fourth Saab, purchased last December from Swedish Motors in Marietta, PA. It had been a 23 year Saab hiatus since I totaled our 1985 900 Combi. We were looking to replace my beloved Miata with a larger convertible, an automatic. It dawned on me that Saab convertibles were still around, and I found a low-mileage example with everything I wanted. We take it out for long drives and it is a joy. The 2.8 V6 coupled with the automatic makes for a smooth, powerful, effortless ride. After merging onto the Interstate under full throttle, my wife exclaimed, "I love this car!" You can't ask for more than that! Steve in Kensington, MD
