    2004 Saab 9-3 Ss (aero) — The definition of a Grand Touring Car. Cruising at 90 mph is easy, efficient, and a pleasure. Friends of mine often voice when initially seating in the car "...wow, did you steal James Bond's car?" lol. The build quality throughout the vehicle is 2nd to none! I can't sum up this car in anything brief except this. Go test drive one.

    Pros: Quality, Engineering, Quiet and Smooth Ride, Stylish, Driving Comfort, Stability and Traction Control Systems work!

    Cons: Cost of replacement parts, Ground Clearance, FWD, Lack of rear Seat Legroom.

    A Four Season Convertible — The car has a number of features that make this a true four season, family convertible. The car has four seats which are usable, the roof line isn't too low, and the performance is well suited to the car. Truly capable of hitting it's 137mph top speed, but just as happy pootling around town

    Pros: Looks, turbo performance, strong build, great handling, well specced

    Cons: Occasional rattles from the roof, has had some items replaced under warranty, bland dashboard

    Awesome Car, Would Never Expect A Turbo Under That Hood! — Ok well Saabs are known for the Turbos and they have done an amazing job with that 2.oL engine over the years. 2ed Geaar is sooo long and once the turbo spools OMG hold on because your in for a treat!! its goes from about 40 to 100 faster then you can swallow in 2ed. The interior is top notch, being an afordable lux car it is quite impresive, fomr the key it uses, to the controls, transmission and how it tells you which light bulb is out.

    Pros: Saab performance Turbo!! :D

    Cons: Front wheel drive, but Saab has introduced a new AWD model now.

    Faster Than Most People Think — This car has 210 HP turbo that is pretty fast, it seems much faster than it states as far as HP. It passes very well in low gears and does 0 to 60 in the low 6's.

    Owner for 0 years, 6 months

    Miles Driven per Year:10,000

    Cons: Some of the interior things look cheaper, thanks to GM and the sunroof sticks but does work.
