The 2011 Saab 9-5 Was the End of Saab

  • Опубликовано: 1 ноя 2018
    The 2010-2011 Saab 9-5 was the end of the line for Saab. Today I'm reviewing a 2010 Saab 9-5 to show you what happened at the end for the Saab brand -- and I'm telling you what I think about the final 9-5.

    i believe the GD chassis base model imprezas had green tach needles as well...the WRX and STI had red. maybe a collab with GM, considering GM bought Saab, and GM also owned a significant portion of Fugi Heavy, and they made a Saab Subaru in the past? idk

    That plastic in the interior is characteristic of all GM junk and most American cars of today. If you compared this to a Swedish Saab 9000 Aero, you'd understand why that car was comparable in luxury to a 5 series BMW

    The durability of this car is why this car was worth what it was priced. But it's cool, true Saab fans know what's up.

    *The top center button is a “Back” button. Depending on the trim The left bottom button reads “ZONE”. In other trims there are two buttons; one has a seat with a fan over it for the seats vent/cool setting and next to it reads “Zone”. The bottom center button has a white lined donut circle followed by three dots and a fan for the fan intensity.*

    Green isn't really that uncommon as a backlight color. Maybe not THAT shade of green, but green back-lighting on the gauge cluster is pretty common for many cars, older and contemporary.

    Saab was not Saab after the 900 was replaced. I had a few 900's and the quality was superb--no other car could match it. I put 375k on one from late 80's and nothing was worn out; everything worked and it still looked great. American cars were junk after 100k miles in the 80's.

    I had a 2001 9-5 Aero, manual and it was a really great car for it's day. It even had a air conditioned glove box and vented seats. The mirrors would turn down to point at the curb when parking. The features were ahead of it's time . Heated back seats on a 2001? Really! The thing handles like on rails and I even put a lot of other cars to shame , surprising a corvette on an on ramp. The key was located between the seat just in case you hit something head on that your knee wouldn't hit the key on the column like other cars, just some safety minded thoughts.

    I had a 2000 Saab 9-3 and it had a bright red fog light on the rear and vents in the center post for rear seat passengers. I never knew the vents were there till I sold it a couple years ago and the new owners gave me a ride home. That is when I also learned my 9-3 had very little leg room in the back. The 9-3 five door had a huge cargo space with the seat folded down and I could put my bicycle in the back with both wheels still on. The reason I got rid of it, nobody wanted to work on it.

    Interesting video! Did you know that a bunch of entusiasts managed to buy the already built but not yet road-aproved wagon-version called SportCombi? At that time they were sold on auctions with no guarantee that they would ever be allowed to be driven on public roads, yet people baught them for hefty sums! And after fighting a couple of years, they finally managed to get them road-legal. I don't know exactly how, but I think it was through a custom/enthusiast classification. So there are a couple of really rare 9-5 wagons out there.

    I love Saab. Had a 86 900turbo and 88s and a 91 9000cs. They were good cars. Many think GM killed Saab but, it was the labor force and Government in Sweden. GM sank Billions into the co. Others Refused to compromise. GM ultimately had shareholders to answer to and dumped the car maker. It’s a shame. FYI the Night dash button on my old Saabs didn’t turn off the gages just the lights. Or at least the tach still worked for sure. FYI the 1988S was my favorite. No turbo lag and I stripped weight (back seats, AC compressor Sapir tire,etc) and it was a great car to toss around.

    Mixed thoughts on your review.. the driving experience on the 2011 95 was I though quite good. You are the only person that did not rave about the handling of the car. I put mine through many mountain twist roads at higher speeds and it handled amazingly. I do share the complaint of the cheap stereo buttons, however they still build Saab parts. I also loved all the looks from drivers I passed, and I would get about 3 compliments on the car being beautiful each week from strangers walking by. I loved it. GM screwed them over . Many parts of this car are found in Buick LaCrosse. Just a FYI. Thanks mr.
