If you like that 3.8, then test drive your granny's Camry with the 3.5
normally aspirated V6. A very well regarded engine with 269 hp. On the
Camry it's rated 21 city, 31 mpg. I have the same thing in a Rav4 with
AWD. It's great for getting by the slow pokes in limited-opportunity
passing, for smoking ricky racers at stoplights, or for embarrassing
snobby Saab owners. :-)

Thanks for fixing it. It's a fun read.

Your links don't work.
Are you referring to the re-badged Subaru by any chance ? Never sold outside the
USA and another one of GM's limp ideas as to what to do with the Saab brand
instead of revitalising it.
It had no Saab heritage at all. It was just a brand name marketing exercise.
The same is true of the Saab 9-7 and 9-2.

Saabs tend to appeal to those with an eye for lines and technology, engineers,
architects, professionals generally.
One of those Saabs put the biggest grin on my face ever. The responsiveness ( no
turbo lag ), handling and pure comfort were lovely. Plus it's a body style I
find unsurpassable. The low bonnet ( hood ) line gives great visibility and the
hatch with the large rear window does the same to the rear, making parking a
large car easy. It's luggage or other capacity is phenomenal too. And it's so
You've missed something.
And they corner like shit sticking to a blanket.

Missed nothing, drove BMW's for years, come to mention it, the BMW 2002
was offered with a turbo in 1973.......So you are wrong again.....
