Saab 9-7 An SUV To BeLeave


Can “beleave” be the opposite of “behold?” I always like to acknowledge good auto reviewing prose. My favorite of this week came from my friend Lawrence Ulrich writing for The New York Times. About the 9-7, Ulrich wrote: “Swab the luxury sauce off this Swedish meatball, and you find a barely disguised Chevy TrailBlazer — a lame-duck, trouble-prone S.U.V. due to be replaced by a G.M. crossover. Saab tried to prettify the interior, but the effect is like wrapping leather around a plywood lemonade stand.
