    Hello! I have been cruising these forums for a while now, so thought it was finally time to show my colours! I recently acquired a 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero Estate from my father after having owned a string of Honda Preludes. I am not a chav however, despite the Prelude past, I have just always...

    Well, i went the other way! what i miss most about the Honda is the Swiss watch reliability and build quality. What i like most about the Saab is that it has a soul and i enjoy driving it.

    OK, so here’s a comparison that not many people are likely to make, but it’s a story that deserves to be told, nonetheless, because it encapsulates the feelings of many people when it comes to old-vs-new cars. So, without further delay…… In the red corner, we have an old and rather funny...
  5. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    After 6 months Saab-less I thought it would be interesting to share my comparisons of my Saab 9-5 3.0tid with my Honda FRV 2.2 i-ctdi. Ride & Handling Big win for Honda here. Ride is much better controlled, no crashing into potholes and no lurching around on the twisty bits. Handling is more...

    The Subaru's gone! Bought the above yesterday, after being so pleased with the Accord. 0-60 in around 8, 30-70 in 7 and 45mpg! Loads of space, fabulous build quality, well equipped (18" rims, sports suspension, reversing sensors, front fogs etc). It was sad to see the Scoob go, but 50 miles a...

    Just read a press report on the new Honda Legend. Honda say they are aiming the car at people who are TRADING UP from Volvo and Saab And then they go on to say that they expect to sell 400 in the first year. That should be one for each dealer as a demonstrator.

    I have just come back from having a ride in a Elise S1 with a modified Honda Civic Type R engine. Oh my god. I have never been in such an exciting car - the engine note is amazing enough & then there's the performance. 205bhp in a car that weighs 750kg. Check out this site...

    Help me Obi Wan you're my only hope! I've been under pressure to change my wifes ageing Polo for something more modern (air con & abs etc.,) and the car currently under scrutiny is the Jazz. Has anyone got one/ driven one and what did you think? Also any other ideas (sensible if...

    A chap we are working with has just got himself a new Honda Accord. I don’t know if anyone has seen the new version - there are not many about yet - but Honda has completely transformed its looks from a Grannymobile into a much larger, sleek, angular saloon - almost Germanic in appearance dare I...
