    With the GM employee discount plan I can pick up a 9-2x Aero for 19K. I need to get rid of my Chevy Colorado due to the fact that in the first few months I owned the vehicle, it had a massive leak. And no matter what I do, the vehicle smells like mold.

    I like the look of the Saab, and the fact that it is a hatchback is a plus since I am in the military and have a lot of gear that I carry around. Just curious if anyone has had any experience with the vehicle.

    Obviously you have no experience with the Saab 9-2x. It is a rebadged WRX for the most part.

    Doesn't it have a SAAB based suspension? And is the ECU and engine exactly the same as the WRX?

    swedish cars are some of the most reliable next to the japs. and the 92x is just a wrx wagon.

    That is what I am thinking. Fun car to drive, looks good, and I can still throw my military gear and mountain bike in the back. Not to mention it would be a lot easier to fit stereo equipment into.

    Go for it, its an excellent deal, and if you ever think its too slow, you can mod it with wrx parts

    Get the manual though, the auto is gay and won't really rev high enough for the turbo to be put to good use

    And if you want to get silly, you could mod it.

    Yeah, now that the wife wants to get rid of the GT for another SUV, I need a car to tinker with.

    So the ECU is made by Subaru? Meaning all the performance companies already have it cracked?
