Just to update this topic, I'll mention that since I started working at the Mitchell Auto Group, I've spent over 10 hours using the 9-4x.
It has a great ride, although a little firm. Build quality is great, but not excellent. Bose sucks. Steering is pretty bad too. It's overly firm all the time, and not in a good way like my bmw. Also power delivery is poor compared to pretty much anything else in the same class. The media center is very nice, and so is the panoramic sunroof.
We've taken it off the market for now because everyone who inquires about it tries to offer less than 30 thousand...the sticker is 52. Instead of taking a loss, Mr. Mitchell prefers to keep it for himself. Too bad it didn't start at 30 in the first place.
Aside from the negative things I mentioned, it's really a nice car and isn't "junk." On top of that, I find it to be one of the best looking cars on the road, so I would have to give it a thumbs-up.
