Back in a Saab

I can't keep away. It's an addiction.

So I totally justified this to myself by saying I had a need for something that could carry stuff from Home Depot and Ikea (which is true). And that I have a friend living with me for the summer who needs to be able to get around on her own (also true). And when my sister's lease on her Focus is up next May, she'll buy the car from me (also true).

Truth is, I just wanted another Saab in the family.

Say hello to my 2000 Saab 9-5 SE sportwagen. Yes, it's a 3.0t automatic. No, I don't care if you don't approve :P It drives beautifully, everything works (well, mostly, but it is 17 years old), and I dig it.

I still have the Mustang, because I'll never get rid of that awesome ride. I have a car that hauls ass, now I have a car that hauls everything else :P

Yay to saab wagons!
boo to calling early 9-5 kombis/sportwagens.
They are neither of those.

Sorry to be a party-pooper, but they're just Wagons; estate if you're being fancy.

yeah it's not even a Wagen. It's a wagon.

Wait, why are we being negative?

Congratulations on your recent purchase. Glad to see another saab still on the road.

Being party poopers is what the internet is all about. I'll call it what I want :P Bottom line is it's great to be back in a Saab!

Having been a V6 owner for many years, I can say that they are still saabs, and I think in general have most of the great qualities of a saab. it may not be the fastest 9-5, but still probably runs good and has good power.

Plus, no sludge worries!
