Quote of the week

Alex Dykes at The Truth About Cars tells a Saab story:

Fire up the engine and the SportCombi reveals its heart and soul. Unfortunately, it's the heart and soul of a squirrel with pneumonia.

Hmmm. I've driven cars like that — but not for long.

Provided you don't mind listening to an automotive impression of a cement mixer churning a bag of bolts or wrestling with torque steer for 7.4 seconds, she'll sprint from zero to 60mph handily.

Faster than anything I've owned, anyway. "Cement mixer?" Put-tee, put-tee.
