Convertible and Dad should have gotten the better soundsystem

Yes. It's My Dad's — I love this car. It's turbo-charged, front-wheel drive with a sweet drop top for the summer. It's fun to drive and sexy to boot.

I'm A Saab Snob. Should You Be? — My car's great. It's very exciting to drive and feels great on the road. One of the greatest thrills in my life is getting her up to 60 in no time and hearing the turbo in the engine whistle. I have the 60th anniversary model, which is a pretty rare one, it comes with stunning 17-inch "spiderman-esque" wheels that glitter in the sunlight along with it's jet black metallic wet shine. The interior is very comfortable. More so than most. This car could be a fantastic luxury car if the cabin was only quieted just a little more, although the noise level in the cabin isn't too bad at all. I have the upgraded Bose 10 speaker surround sound system in my car, which sounds great. Sometimes when I'm hanging with my friends, they'll be showing off their new subs they just got, and I'll be like, "But check this out", and get just about the same bass quality as them pounding through the speakers without any subs at all. I also enjoy the nice green lighting on the interior. Everything from the display on the sound system, to the symbols and letters on the shifter, to the backlight of the speedometer and other dials, to subtle soft greens glows coming from the inside of the outlets for cigarette lighters. I have plans to add some more soft green LEDs on the intside of my Saab to add to this cool green mood. I may also add a 2 million color LED underglo kit, keeping it mostly on green of course. All in all, my car is great. I love it. Some people even find my attraction to my car worrying or disturbing, haha, but even so. It's a great car, ESPECIALLY for the price. I recommend this car for anyone who wants to break away from the boring, expected "trends" like mercedes benz and BMWs. This car is for those who want a great looking, fun feeling, different car that can be shown off anywhere. Especially on the road when you zip by with the turbos whistling as some middle-aged man who thinks he has it made in his hardly exciting and common luxery sedan watches with envy.

Pros

Good power and midrange acceleration, comfortable, quiet, TURBO

Cons

Smallish rims, high cost of upgrade parts

65

My Saab — Its no drag racer, but mid-range its really quick. its built like a tank, or should i say, a SAAB. The ergonomics in the interior are fantastic with EVERYTHING being in arms length. The exterior design is fantastic, though it could use some larger wheels. Good gas mileage and lots of power for its displacement, and free maintenance for 3 years is cool. This is the kind of car that you go for a drive just for the sake of driving, and its so comfortable! GO SAAB!

I Love This Car. — If you want a car that provides style, comfort, smooth handling and a turbo kick, this Saab 9-3 is the car for you. Leather seats with a roomy interior makes driving to the store or cross-country very comfortable. I would recommend this car to anyone asking about Saab.

Luv My Baby...! — Acceleration is great considering it is only a 2000cc vehicle. Best in the bright lime yellow colour.

Born From Jets Is The Honest Truth. — As a multiple owner/ driver of many Saab vehicles I would say the 9-3 aero is the best overall!

Saab 9-3 Cabrio : Even In Rainy Belgium This Is A Very Nice Car — Since a year I have a Saab 9-3 Cabrio. Finally a Diesel for the Cabrio, the 1.9 TDI. I love it, I try to drive as much as possible with the roof open (when coming back from work, during "touristic trips", etc.) . Very good to "unstress", cruising with my Saab Cabrio!

Pros

luxury car without the luxury price; handles like a dream, with added horsepower in it's turbo engine; the car is great for all weather conditions and fits 4 adults very comfortably, 5 adults may be a squeeze depending on their size. The car is dependable, safe, and very sturdy. It is akin to a Volvo, both brands I trust with my life and the lives of the ones I love.

Cons

Sometimes there are electrical glitches with the car and so the sensors about a lightbulb being out are sometimes inaccurate.

Beautiful, Fun, And Safe Car That Is Very Fun And Zippy To Drive. — I loved this car! It was my second Saab and I couldn't have asked for more in a car. It performed the way I wanted it to, was easy for me to take care of, and always kept me safe. I also loved the little extra features this car had like the AUX input for ipods/iphones for music, the folding back seats so that I could fit extra large items in the trunk, and the cup holders! For some reason, Saabs always have the coolest mechanical cup holders.

Great Drive Great Price — Overall superb vehicle. It doesnt exceed at anything, but it does everything well. Commuter vehicle, road warrior, work truck, and anything in between. Its done them all and performed like a champ. Highly recommend this vehicle and I hope Saab can be saved from total shutdown!

Fun Yet Economical To Drive — Fun!!! - I had a BMW Z3 convertible but it was noisy and had no room to take a trip. I get all the performance in the Saab 9-3 Convertible plus back seats and space for luggage. This car is fun to drive, comfortable on long trips and gets great MPG
