Will the 9-5 Drivers Please Stand Up

Where are all of you? Our forums are few and far between, I must say that it probably has something to do with the target demographic of the 9-5, but still, I know there are quite a few of us on here who truly love our cars, I mean let's face it, it's the cream of the saab luxury sedan crop, let's show everyone how great our 9-5's are.

Reporting for duty, sir.

Age demographic.... pbbbtbtt. It's annoying enough that I get flack for owning a 9-5 by my friends because "I'm too young" for it. Dammit, all this annoyance is starting to make me want to get... an S2k. I can't stand it honestly. It wasn't that bad before, but the flak's gotten worse. I'm 20 and I can't have a 9-5 for some reason? I know it's a little big and somewhat mature, but when you really "drive" it, it's hardly what I would call mature. So tell me, am I too young for a 9-5?

Luxury???!!! I hate that word....


But yeah, we're a small bunch here.

I'm 25 and get a bit of stick off my mates about having a 9-5, until they sit in and I get to put my foot down, then they tend to think it's not such an old buggers car. There's some benefits to having driver training by the Police for my new job

I could trade my 9-5 in and get a G35 or an Audi TT, but I just can't let go of that thing of beauty. And I get noticed in it anyway. It has lots of power and it is safe/feul efficient. Plus if I get married and have kids I won't have to trade it in for a minivan.

I dont see why people call the 9-5 an old persons car, or a slow luxury car.
Mine is pretty snappy and its just the lowly 170 hp model.
But by the time march comes around, it should be stage 4.
I like mine alot. true i get shit from everyone for being 19 and owning it, but i dont care. someone said it before, they think its an old guy car, until i put my right foot down, then they shut right up.

Btw, We need to get some more 9-5 owners on this board.

Nick
