2005 Saab 9-2x Aero
Update: Sadly I have sold the vehicle because the cats got clogged and I
needed a more reliable daily driver. Just a video of my Saabaru. I bought
it in Big Bear from the original owner. It has a brand new paint job,
timing belt, water pump, radiator, and brakes. I think it looks classier
than its Subaru Impreza WRX sibling. I proudly own one of 10,346 of these
cars built. There's nothing Saab about it other than the name and body
parts. It's all Subaru otherwise, and it has the EJ205 boxer 4 cylinder turbocharged engine.

2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero.
Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof
along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more
stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
This Saab 900 Was Built to Last
On a brisk Utah morning, at the base of a ski resort, we spent some time
with a Saab 900 SPG. Owner, Jordan Melville, dives into his love for Saab,
detailing how he brought this 900 back from the brink of the wrecking yard
to experience the car as if it were brand new.While modern day Saab
struggles to keep their cars on the road, Jordan's 900 SPG keeps the flame

Just mounted on some new wheels and wanted to see how it looked. So I had a

FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Good

Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles
of similar weight.
The Subaru Impreza was redesigned for the 2002 model year. Imprezas
manufactured after September 2001 include structural changes to improve
occupant protection in frontal crashes (note: information about when a
specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically
affixed to the car on or near the driver door). The Saab 9-2X was
introduced in the 2005 model year and discontinued after the 2006 model
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has evaluated the
crashworthiness of an Impreza with the structural changes in a 40 mph
frontal offset crash test into a deformable barrier.
The frontal offset crash test ratings also apply to the station wagon
version of the Impreza, beginning with 2002 models manufactured after
September 2001. The 9-2X was available only as a wagon.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During
rebound, the dummy's head brushed the B-pillar.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of
any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Head acceleration
from the B-pillar hit was negligible.

August 26, 2008 Pacific raceways track day footage. Me in my Saab 92x

acceleration but with lapped traffic and late, hard braking I am able to
keep up for almost 20 minutes.
