I can’t tell you how much I miss Saab. The glory days of this Swedish car maker may be long gone, but thankfully the used car market is practically overflowing with good examples.

With that in mind, here are some of my favourites.

Saab 9-5

For executive car buyers who dare to be a little bit different. High power upsets the balance of this car, and anyway, the 9-5 is much better at soaking up bumps and keeping occupants happy in the spacious interior than it is at going reasonably quickly. The seats are comfortable and the driver’s environment, with easy to reach controls and clear dials, is a delight. Generous standard equipment, impressive safety features and success in crash tests make the 9-5 even more attractive.
