A fun to drive vehicle that is cheaper and better than a BMW or Mercedes
Great vehicle, it's got lots of power, especially in sport mode. There's lots of room and comfort. The car comes with tons of luxury features including air conditioned seats. We got this vehicle with GM's employee discount and is a much better car than the 2004 9-3 we had, even though that was a reliable and nice car. If you want lots of room and comfort, the 9-5 is the way to go, the 9-3 is a little clausterphobic. The 9-5 for 2006 in Canada and the USA comes with one powerplant, the same 2.3L L4 as ours, but has 260 HP instead of 220. The Arc and Aero is formed into one and costs the same as a 2005 Arc, but like I said before, with 260 HP. Otherwise I would recommend the new 9-3 Aero which has a 250 HP Turbocharged GM 2.8L V6 that's found in the Cadillac CTS.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
