Here in Sweden you can also get the AWD in 2.0. But what I have heard is that the e2.0 t is the old Saab engine, perhaps I am misstaken.The only thing I've heard is the if you get the AWD version, which I THINK is only available with the 2.8, that can be a nightmare if it goes out...and it's prone to failure. Otherwise I think both the 2.0 and the 2.8 are proven engines. They're GM engines, but they're both pretty good from what I understand. I've heard from others that the 2.0 feels more nimble because it's lighter.
