      I have a 2003 9-5 Aero Wagon/5-MT. It's one of my favorite cars that I've owned.

      The engine sludge issue is the largest issue you'll want to look out for; the oil should have been changed every...

      We had a '99 Intrigue GLS 3.5 that we bought from my aunt in December '06 with 30k miles and drove until 100k miles when we sold it in August 2009.

      Realistically, they're not a bad car. ...

      The airbag light was intermittent on our '99 for 5 years or so, seems to be a common issue. The dealer could never pinpoint which sensor it was, and they wanted to replace all of them. Hell, could...

      My Dad had a '99 XLT 4-door 5.0/AWD that he bought brand new and drove to 252,000 miles. It was one of the most reliable vehicles he owned, I believe the only unexpected repair was and alternator at...

      I use Napa Gold filers on all the vehicles in the family, including on my 1998 Forester, 2000 Outback, 2002 Outback H6 and 2004 Forester XT. Even use them on the Midget too and did my first oil...

      I use Rotella 5w40 in my 9-5 Aero, as does most of the SAAB community. It's very reasonably priced, pretty much available everywhere. The large jugs are 1 gallon vs. 5 quarts, so if you need more...

      You and me both. There was a set of RK1s locally here, but the seller wanted $1250 without tires. RK2s look nice, but they're wicked heavy by comparison and almost always need to be refinished. I...

      I vote for keeping the Saab. I just picked up an '03 9-5 Aero Wagon 5MT with Touring package and the '04/05 Aero front bumper, and it's an awesome car. I put a 3" turbo back exhaust on it last...

      If she liked the Crosstrek despite being too small, why not check out the Forester? Much larger cargo area than the Crosstrek, and it has the FB25 instead of the FB20. Ticks every box you have. ...

      A few of the "work" trucks. These aren't all the apparatus, just the ones I happen to be on the most.

      I love first gen Foresters, especially the '98-'00 ones. The '98 I had, that I gave to my sister was very entertaining to drive, wish it had a manual. Even my Dad's '12 Forester is rather fun to...

      Aside from the MG, my first car was a '97 Jetta 2.0, followed by a '96 Jetta Trek 2.0 when the '97 was totaled in a not-at-fault accident. There are probably some better choices out there, but he...

      As it's already been said, no reason not to buy the Outback 3.6, it's a great car.

      The Subaru H6s are really good engines, and aren't plagued by bad headgaskets like the early EJ25s. They also...

      Class I: Built on a truck chassis, typically F-350/450/550, Ram 3500/4500/5500, International, Freightliner, Chevy Topkick, GMC Kodiak, etc. Most stable chassis, as they're built on trucks.

      Fortunately we haven't had any issues with rust (as they're kept in a heated bay and washed constantly), but I definitely know the rust pattern to which you're speaking. When I worked for the...
