What's the used Saab 9-5 saloon like?

This second-generation Saab 9-5 was launched at a time when the company was in its death throes. Recently divorced from General Motors and desperately short of cash, it needed the 9-5 to sell in big numbers, but the car failed to tempt many people out of their Audis, BMWs and Mercedes.

Under the skin, the 9-5 owed a lot to the Vauxhall Insignia. While Saab engineers made changes to the suspension in an effort to give the 9-5 a unique character, the result is a ride that’s pattery and unsettled at all speeds.
