Automobile do a brief write up on testing the new V6 Aero. And yes, they like it. One thing they also do in this article is the annoying pigeonholing of Saab owners as “devotees” that “live for high strung fours”. Obviously the V6 is going to be totally unacceptable!! Where do they get this sort of crap??
Can I put this sort of generalisation in the can with the word “quirky”??
Now that that’s out of my system, please enjoy the review. Can’t wait to drive one of these beasties.
UPDATE: I dont want to sound like I’m flogging a dead horse here, but the whole ‘quirky’ thing really annoys the daylights out of me. It seems to be the fallback default adjective of every unimaginative journo that gets the privelege to pick up a set of keys.
Don’t believe me? Here’s a Google News search for ‘Saab Quirky’. Read it and weep. Seven (7) separate news reports in the last few weeks that can’t talk about Saab without mentioning the ‘Q’ word.
