Great value, better than most other makes in this category, the Saab marque still can nip at the heals at the status of Audi and BMW with the advantage of Vauxhall and Ford running costs… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/11/2008 by g burdis (1 review written)

The car is great well built reliable, good to drive due to the 150bhp which the engine delivers. I find the car good on gas depending how it is driven, if you cane it expect poor fuel useage, but if driven like an old geeser it delivers good mph… Read Full Review

Love the car to bits. It does everything I could want or do with ease. Only bad points are the handling and the mpg. Next Saab will be a diesel!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2007 by LeilaB (1 review written)

Comfort (driver & passengers), an excellent, responsive ride and lots of space for luggage and rear seat passengers. Dual zone climate control is great and the car has Saab's excellent safety and reliability record. I'd have liked to have had a bigger engine and upgraded trim but settled for what I could afford and no regrets… Read Full Review

Good all round car. Look for Saab specialists for servicing. Check turbo on 9-5 models these can go as early as 60,000 miles… Read Full Review

“I owned a Saab 9-5 Saloon for around 2 years buying it...”

Written on: 03/08/2007 by nigelmccosker (1 review written)

I owned a Saab 9-5 Saloon for around 2 years buying it with 20,000 miles on the clock. I loved the look of the car as it was an Aero lookalike. It drove well for about 3 months, after which things started to go wrong. At the next service the dealer noticed that all shocks were leaking and all needed replaced. I was lucky the car was just still in warranty so I didn't have to pay. A few more months and it would have cost me over £1000. Next, after the car frequently went into limp-home mode and… Read Full Review

“I bought my 9-5 2.0SE with 42,000 on the clock back in...”

Written on: 16/02/2006 by rybuszka (4 reviews written)

I bought my 9-5 2.0SE with 42,000 on the clock back in 2002, and instantly fell in love with the beautiful styling, luxurious drive and stunning performance.

That feeling lasted about a year, up to 60,000. Then it turned into a horror story, a little bit like your angelic, beautifully-behaved child turning into a teenager! First, the mysterious black ignition box broke - £150. Then fumes started coming into the car after some pipe broke in the engine - £120. Then it was the tyres - £100 a… Read Full Review

“I bought a Saab 9-5 Saloon 2.0T from my friend with...”

Written on: 19/12/2005 by tomexh (11 reviews written)

I bought a Saab 9-5 Saloon 2.0T from my friend with 18'000 miles on it, it was very low mileage for its age and had a full service history on it. First thing to fail!!! the radio and information display screen. Cost to replace, £285. second hand. Then I found out that the oil pump filter had to be replaced because it bungs up, 23.000miles, what a laugh. cost? I'm not going to frighten you. Then the air conditioning display unit went, quote to repair, £600. The chain needs replacing as it is… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/07/2005 by victoranthony (14 reviews written)

Saab 9-5 Saloon 2.0T - I put 150,000 mile on my 1999 model. Turbo went at 140,000.
I loved this car, it returned 38mpg and was plenty fast enough throughout the rev range. Superb motorway cruiser and good A roads. Not good on B roads.
Beautifully engineered cup holder.
Mine was very reliable… Read Full Review

“Bought my Saab 9-5 Saloon 2.0T family car in 2002 with...”

Written on: 19/05/2005 by Rocksteady (56 reviews written)

Bought my Saab 9-5 Saloon 2.0T family car in 2002 with 90k miles with a FSSH, expecting a few years of cheap compfortable motoring. Within 2k miles the turbo blew costing £1200 to repair. Just 3 weeks ago the big end bearing went (mileage 123k), requiring a new engine installation. Apparently both these faults are quite common with this car, on higher mileage examples.

So despite a FSH and being well looked after this car has cost in repairs more than its current value.

However for a cheap… Read Full Review

“I have had a Saab 9-5 2.0 SE ECO turbo family car for...”

Written on: 04/03/2005 by black hawk (2 reviews written)

I have had a Saab 9-5 2.0 SE ECO turbo family car for about 4 years now and covered around 50,000 miles. It is a 1998 model with 90,000 miles on the clock. It is a nice drive and for a long journey it is one of the most comfortable cars I've ever owned. However, and this is a big however - they have serious build quality issues.

The list of the major things that went wrong are:

The chain and sprockets that drives the engine balancer shafts needed replacing after 40,000 miles which required… Read Full Review
