Right?? Im pretty sure it does.
I thought that the 900NG and 9-3 were Cavaler based?Trollspeed said:The 900 NG and the later 9-3 was based on the vectra platform the 9-5 is not.
There is no car maker who shares the same as the 9-5, Alfa Romeo (FIAT)was one of them who would make use of it but backed off..........:cheesy: So we are allone
what a pitty
http://driving.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/driving/used_car_reviews/article450069.eceAt £28,336, the 9-5 Aero saloon is good value compared to similarly swift executives from Audi and BMW, but it simply can't compete with Germany's finest. A more worthwhile comparison would be with the Vauxhall Vectra - a car which shares the 9-5's platform. Even in performance VXR spec, the Vectra is £4,341 cheaper than the 9-5 driven here. It seems the loyalty of Saab buyers is going to be tested to the limit...
Now in its seventh year of production, the Saab 9-5 saloon shares its platform with the Vauxhall Vectra, but thanks to a longer wheelbase, wider track and more sophisticated multilink rear suspension, the car is endowed with true executive car levels of comfort and refinement.
They are, but to avoid some confusion here it needs clarifying; in mainland Europe the Cavalier name was never used and the Vectra A chassis [ng900 and og9-3] that was the Vauxhall cavalier Mk3 for the UK was known as the Opel Vectra and was in production from around 1988 to 1996 and alongside this was the Opel Calibra, essentially though they're all GM J body cars just like the aforementioned Saabs. Now enter the Vectra B; new chassis for GM Europe, sold under Opel and Vauxhall as a Vectra and by Saab as a 9-5.valbowski1980 said:I thought that the 900NG and 9-3 were Cavaler based?
