Re: New Member, Currently A Saab Owner...

I think I enjoy driving my wife's 93'aero almost as much as the FJ. Different type of pleasure, but definitely in the same opium den.

Re: New Member, Currently A Saab Owner...

Was working for SAAB a couple of years ago always loved their Aero-models (with only a couple of hundret sold in Austria, it was a pretty exclusive ride). However, I would not trade my FJ for any SAAB any more.....Ideally, keep both - if not, go for the FJ:-) Welcome to the Forum!

Re: New Member, Currently A Saab Owner...

Welcome to the forum! I'm also a SAABer, currently driving a an 01' 9-5 SE, wish I had an Aero. Can't complain though. I got a great deal on mine and it's been a pretty nice ride. Got a new turbo, throttle body, cats, and exhaust at 80K but that was covered under warranty. It's a wonderful driving car but I've got the FJ bug bad. Hopefully I'll have a cruiser in a couple of months.

Let us know when you get your FJ!

Re: New Member, Currently A Saab Owner...

The 93 is a blast to drive. That's for sure. After all, how many manufacturers put turbo's on their V6 models? So it's really got some pep to it. Has rear-wheel steering, which you can feel in the corners. But when that's all said and done, if I can't rely on it, what good are those other things?

Re: New Member, Currently A Saab Owner...

Wahoo!! Took one for a test drive at lunch! I was impressed with the ride quality! Of course, I drive a very low sitting, sporty suspension vehicle every day where every bump is felt. I enjoyed the smooth quality of the FJ! I really never gunned it but I could tell it had plenty of power and was no slouch.

I definitely want the upgrade package 2 and the convenience package and I want it in silver. I'll be going on another ride again but this time taking the wife. I'll let you all know what she thinks of it.

Re: New Member, Currently A Saab Owner...

Ugh, my great father in law mentioned just getting an extended warranty for my Saab. But I don't want to do that now!!! I want the FJ! My wife is leaning towards the extended warranty route.
