Saab 9-2x

Started on Aug. 7 by Robert Bowen

Ride Rating


LA Traffic Assault Vehicle and Junk Hauler:

298 horsepower at the wheels, 16g turbo, Spearco IC, big injectors, all the bolt-on tricks. Stock wheels/tires for the street, rear swaybar but otherwise stock suspension.

The 9-2x is like a WRX, but cooler: - less "boy racer" looks - Cheaper to buy - Better sound insulation and equipment specs for the year

Alas, i sold the car. Fun but I'd rather have the cash. I still recommend it to anyone looking for a fun wagon-type vehicle that's unusual. Maybe I'll buy another in a couple of years.

We love our 9-2x Aero, our friends with WRXs hate it when we compare the two (jealous???). The car is hard to beat in terms of a sporty wagon as it looks unique, but is just as easy to mod, cheap to maintain, well documented, etc. as a WRX. The chassis is rock solid, that's for sure, and we really like the extra bits and pieces the Saabaru got.
