Pros

Very comfortable and sharp looking, with a nice feel of safety due to added features.  I never had any issues with the car, only needed scheduled maintenance.  Would get up to 30 mpg on highway trips yet extremely fun to drive with or without the top down!

Cons

Like most sports cars the tires do not last as long as one would hope

Swweettt!!!!!!!!! — I like how sharp the car looks and unique the color was compared to the other Saab convertibles I saw on the road. Very comfortable and sharp looking, with a nice feel of safety due to added features. I never had any issues with the car, only needed scheduled maintenance. Would get up to 30 mpg on highway trips yet extremely fun to drive with or without the top down! I highly recommend a Saab and feel their are not many if any other convertibles that are built with the unique combination of safety and style than the Saab 2T.

Overall I Like Driving It And My Wife Loves He Car. — Steering is affected by road crown, pulls with only a minor crown, (tiresome on long trips). Very low to ground MUST be careful of curbs, concrete parking stops and street gutters which will tear-up the air dam and underside front panel. Radio is integral to electronics and can not be replaced. On-board telephone is useless and does not work in the USA.

If You Love Speed, Buy One. — I love my car, it has the speed I was looking for, it hugs the curves...I haven't had any problems with it. It is a great car for road trips because of the smooth ride. The interior is spacious and comfortable, the exterior is sexy and sporty. It gets great gas mileage and it is the perfect car for me. =]

Pros

Fun to drive

Cons

Little Tuning parts available

Lacking Power Yet Still Fun To Drive — I like my cars styling interior and out, but it needs new wheels, window tint standard, definately more power output. I mean out of a turbocharged I-4 it should run way better than 210hp. the 0-60 is also slow esp. compared to cars with the same amnt. of power.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Its Different, And If Taken Care Of, Will Run For A Very Long Time. — Performance: for a 2 liter turbo four, its awesome. Love driving it on the highway Build quality: High quality build. held up very well without any problems Appearance: Stealthily understated. Having said that, it is starting to show its age. Cost of ownership. Services are costly. But its a euro car, its part of package Fun factor: Definitely fun. playing with the turbo is great. Wish it was a manual and had a sportier tire package, but great anyway.

Pros

An amazing car that fit me like a glove... a great value with lots of features compared to the price of other cars in the class

Cons

car sits very low and the front overhang is always scraping curbs or parking lot entrance/exit ramps.  premium unleaded required and not so great gas mileage in the city

By Far, The Best Car I've Ever Owned. — raining sensing wipers, heated seats, rear parking sensors, six speed auto trans, xenon head lights, silver sport trim on steering wheel, two tone colored seats, amazing power available whenever it is needed, this car is the perfect size for zipping in and out of traffic and it's extremely comfortable.

Pros

I would recomend SAAB to any anyone.

Cons

The only thing i hate about my SAAB, is when you see the Audi cab you just wonder if i should have paid a little more and got one of them.

Saab 9-3 — Its great, tyres resonable, wipers cheap, only had it 2 years and it has gone through both of its MOT's with no problems at all, its just a little bit thirsty. But when the roof is down, God its good fun.

Its The Beast From The East — Performance - Great performance in a straight line and in the corners. Build Quality - Greatly built engine that can withstand unusual amounts of pressure from the turbo, very nice suspension, don't like all of the plastic bumpers and ground effects. Appearance - Looks great get compliments all the time even with the bumper off! Cost of Ownership - Alright gas mileage considering I have a lead foot I get about 24 mpg overall, some of the maintenance is ridiculous but there are ways to get around it. Fun Factor - 7 1/2
