Does that SAAB Aero X look like a Pontiac Soltice?

Oh goody. Another Saab hybrid. I do not think that the Saaburu is selling well. I guess they had to try something else.

I just wish they would bring back the "egg" looking models. The combi looks too much like a station wagon. I have the 9-3 sport sedan. There's just something odd about having a Saab sedan, though. It makes me feel too suburban and housewife-ish.

Kang if you want true surburba, buy a Chrysler mini-van to load the hockey gear, the dog and the 2.5 children you will have. laugh.gif laugh.gif
Just kidding!!!!
It's too bad about Saab and Volvo, I think the cars are becoming too North Americanized.

Volvo seems to have benefitted, The styling is far more attractive now. Volvos used to be considered butt-ugly. Now they're one of he more stylish sedans on the road (which of course is a subjective call).

This SAAB AeroX is pretty hot looking. Impractical though - for the image crowd.

Yes. I thought there was a distinction between those who drive SAABs and those who drive BMWs. The BMW set wants to be seen. The SAAB set just wants to drive a nice, little sportscar.

Yes, they are alot more stylish than they use to be.
In Canada you cannot get a new Volvo for under 30,000 and a new Saab will start off just under 30,000. Pretty expensive but they are a quality car.

If you put me in a mini-van or envirocrusher 3000, I will die. The kids will just have to hold their hockey gear on their laps. laugh.gif

And what a painful death it would be, after a mandatory stop at the McDonald's drive-thru. laugh.gif
