2011 Saab 9-3 Base Convertible Review
Rare Java Metallic and the last SAAB since the brand has vanished. This car is a cruiser. I opted for a base model with the standard rims and tires since my previous 9-3 AERO had a punishing ride. The leather and the seats are the best in the business. Performance is a bit slower than my AERO but still has the turbo thrust when needed. Visibility is decent for a convertible.
The backseat is completely useless. I have read for a convertible, this model has more space but unless you have a toddler, this is a single or couples only car. I also was miffed to see that they did not clearcoat the underside of the trunk lid. In addition, the car retains the door handles and floor mats of 2007 and prior. Probably a GM cost cutting measure. The ride is jiggly even for a convertible.
An All Around Good Cruiser For Worry Free Motoring — I traded my 2010 AERO Sportcombi in on Coco due to the demise of SAAB and wanting to fulfill my dream of a SAAB convertible. All in all she has performed well and is stylish and roomy for two passengers. This is my third SAAB of the current 9-3 breed and expect the same bullet proof reliability and good gas mileage of the previous stable.

2011 Saab 9-3 XWD Review
All wheel drive, comfort and MPGs
Could use a little more power
Really Nice Car — We discovered after Saab went bankrupt that a lot of cars sat at the ports until the courts settled the bankruptcy. In Sept 2012 the cars were some of the prior Saab dealers. As such, I picked this up with 6 mi. for almost 1/2 new sticker. After over a year it has 7000 mi. and my wife loves it. As with my other Saabs, they are comfortable, fun to drive and the XWD is a nice benefit especially in the wintering conditions.

2011 Saab 9-3 Base Review
Love the Saab unique signature designs for inside and outside
My 01 Audi a4 had more features than a 2011 Saab Though they both mid luxury.. And it was built cheaply, thanks to GM, that's why they dont make them anymore.
Perfect Design And Trim — The design, the look and the feel of it is great. It has that classic Saab design which is a big +, but then the material were cheaply built by GM which says not so much engineering thoughts were put into building the car.
Primary Use: Commuting to work

I Like It
I miss the button dash Saab like my 2006 9-3 that I sold. This one has a very GM dash with the GM radio and the knobs for the climate control look like they come from the GM Europe parts bin. Read More
