Product Overview

Saab 9-5 Wagon is an executive station wagon in production from 1997 to 2001, whereupon it received a facelift. It was available with a range of inline-4 and V6 engines that displaced 2.0 to 3.0 liters.
The 9-5 Wagon was exceptionally gorgeous, arguably the best of its time. It used a range of turbocharged engines, which was quite ahead of its time. This raised some difficulties in maintenance, though the engines have proven to be rather durable.
