Not to spoil your fun or anyone else's, but here's a review from the pesimists at edmunds.com that's less than steller, even though the 9-2x is the highest rated Saab according to them . I really need to stop listening to them.
It seems that the majority of the negative reviews I read when researching my purchase of this car all were based on the fact that a premium price tag was applied to this car... Edmunds being one of them.
If these reviews were written today, in light of the current rebates, I think most of them would be singing a different tune. Of course, that tune may be 'Why the hell did they not price this car more affordably to start with?'.
That review was in April last year and i think the rebates etc have a changed a lot of perception about the car. A lot of the stuff they emphasised, it was hard to tell if they were critiquing the 9-2x or the WRX. Other reviews have also placed a lot more emphasis on the enhancements, which I think Edmunds ignored to a large extent (handling etc).
As for Edmunds' clarity, they had this to say a few days ago about the appointment of a new exec at GM.
What this means to you: This could be good news for all consumers as GM is aiming to reduce production costs by streamlining global production. Hate to say it, but it also might be bad news for consumers as this new vice president could become another suit clogging an already bureaucratic corporation in desperate need of some bold and decisive turn-around plans.
I wonder if they have a guy employed at Edmunds that just spends his day building fences for their writers to sit on? :cheesy:
