Saab....hmmmm — Posemoble. Lovely engine, vivid acceleration...chassis cant handle the power. Damy cheap second hand though....trundling along, top down, knowing you havent spent a fortune, sitting in leather lined luxury , can't be bad really. Go, on, try one....you know you want to ;0)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The engine is lovely

Cons: The handling isn't

Not Sure What This Is Asking? — Firstly, I dislike the location of ignition. I just can't get used to it, it doesn't seem natural. I also dislike having to leave the gear lever in a selected gear before you can remove the keys from the ignition. But, because the rest of the car is what it is, I put up with these minor faults.

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

Pros: Power!

Cons: Location of ignition, again!

I Would By Another One Tomorrow If I Had The Money. — I loved the pure power of this car! was great fun to floor it and go. Best thing was Saab's trip computer never told you current MPg just average, cos they obviously new any driver would be scared by the 7MPG when the car was floored from standstill! hehehe, Considering this car never fully had a proper service in the 5 years i had i (oil and filter change every year without fail though) it did well to take 180000 miles and still pass an MOT before i traded it in for the C4. Sadly this car needed major repairs so had to go (£2500 worth of repairs, Air con compressor, Clutch, Timing Chain.) but was such a great car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Was alot faster than it looked, that caught a few people out at traffic lights.

Cons: none

Saabs - Most Unreliable "luxury" Car Ever! But They Do Look Good. — Known for engine oil sludge build-up due to oil pan being mounted too close to catalytic converter- engines being replaced before 100,000 miles!!! BEWARE-must change oil every 3,000 miles!!!! Radio, computer screen, climate control, power seat, soft-top-hydraulics, power antenna- all problematic! Engine light comes on constantly- many issues. Saab owned by GM from 1994-2009-explains a lot! Great styling, gas mileage, very fast- not worth it!

Pros: Great styling, great in snow, very fast, lots of options- but thats all!

Cons: Mechanically plagued with problems and interior electrical options all unreliable! $$$$$COSTLY!

My Fun Car — Great car, comfort performance looks and desirability always getting looked at with hood down shades on and music blearing out (even in the rain lol) . However I'm no poser as you may have guessed.The only down side in todays eco friendly life is the fuel consumption but when you use the power you pay the price.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Looks good and great performance when required

Cons: non

My Saab 9-3 — It is very fast for what it is and it is easy to get a hell of a lot more horsepower out of it. Handling could be better being front wheel drive what with my old car being a BMW. After new shocks, springs, rear sway and some other suspension reinforcements, the handling is pretty sweet though. Not a bad car for the price for sure.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fast, cheap, decent build.

Cons: not excellent handling.  interior is bland at best.  some build quailty could be better

My 2000 Saab 9-3 Convertible — I like this little guy. It's fun to drive and kinda quick. It has a stock boosted 2.0 liter that will run a 15.65 in the quarter mile which isn't to shabby in my opinion. It'll even beat some of the V8's out there on the street. Having the top down on a sunny day is nice too. It's also nice when it's 20 degrees outside when you want to freeze my friends' asses off!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quick, fun to drive, well built

Cons: Since there are no Saab dealers in my area, parts can get pretty expensive, luckily I'm kind of a gearhead!

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
