I read the article >and wondered if they were driving the same car as I do? True! How could they ignore in their point assignments that the Saab is the only one with a useful trunk? How could they complain about the seats being hard to slide into -- duh, they're not leather!? How could they not note how much more standard equipment comes in the Saab making it less expensive than almost anything else in the test? What was that about mushy brakes??? And, lastly, Saab specifically fixed the tendancy to follow the grade of the road in the redesigned front-end-- they should have driven it before the redesign! (I think their alignment was off, as well as their perspective, personally...). The A4 is an economy car compared to the 9-3!!!!!! --Blair
