Yes. It's an excellent all round package.

I'd have another Saab - if they are still around in 5 years time.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
October 2013

Did you get a good deal and why?
I felt it was a good deal. Price was exactly in line with all the guides, it was a dealer I'd bought from before, and I really liked the car.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Had a bad time with a car (not a Saab) I'd just bought and needed to find a good replacement after dealer refunded my money.

What was the dealer like?
Helpful, attentive, not at all pushy.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's had a Hirsch 175bhp re-chip so it's mid-range acceleration is storming. Generally it's a fine car to drive, although the ride is a bit noisy over poorer road surfaces. But in time I'll replace the budget tyres that are on at present for something a bit better and I'm pretty sure that things will be much improved.

What's it like to park?
Very easy, and the rear park sensors help it even more.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
After a few days of use it was clear that either the tyres were very noisy at speed, or that a wheel bearing was dying. It turned out to be the front tyres!

What's most practical about your car?
Huge boot, very good fuel economy.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Night panel, Infotainment system, leather seats, auto wipers.
