It has its problems: a Saabish tendency to overheat, mediocre gas mileage, and it is cruelly slow. But it is comfortable like many cars today are not, handles mountain roads quite nicely, and it does feel solid on the road. Hell, the AC even works!
I miss the Passat, but this is fun, too, in its own way. We'll probably get a replacement for the Passat -- we need a more dependable long-distance cruising vehicle -- but for now...the Saab's carrying the load.
