Chevy Should Model Their Other Cars After This — Great alternative to average mill of the market like Honda, Toyota etc... Exceptionally smooth ride, I've heard people say Audi has a smooth ride... Driven both, I think this is far nicer. Not knocking Audi, I love the Audi as well, A6 perhaps might be my next car. Performance is well balanced, handling could be more aggressive but then you'd loose the comfort. Overall great car. Pretty good gas mileage as well, average usually 28+, highway with aggressive driving around 32-33, people with lighter food then mine can yield 34-36mpg.

Pros: Smooth and Comfortable ride

Cons: Expensive parts and hard to find any accessories

I Love My Saab 9-3 Aero! — I love my car - still...after 4 years of driving it like crazy. Even before we had it tuned by Frank of SQR (Sweden), it was fast - pulled nice and hard and handled really well. Now, well, hold on tight when you floor it! I've had it on the track a few times (Thunderhill - Willows, CA), and it's so much fun. Admittedly, it can't keep up with the high-powered Corvettes or Vipers on the straight, but it has nearly always trounced them through the curves (sure - driver experience has something to do with that, too) - the handling is superb. It has had its share of minor mechanical issues, but nothing earth-shattering in severity or cost. Besides bumper wear from city parking it still looks good and the interior still feels and looks like new. I would (and often do) recommend this car. But if you're a driver who is less concerned with performance, opt for another trim level - the sport suspension of the Aero often proves too jarring for some who prefer a softer, squishier ride.

Pros: Handling, power, quality, looks, reliability

Cons: The front end is so low I keep scraping it on curbs...but who cares?!

A Very Comparable Sport Sedan — Nice sporty car at a decent price. You'll definately find more performance in the higher models with the larger mitsubishi turbo vs the garret. The linear with 175 hp is by all means still a fun quick car, but the areo with the 210 hp brings a new meaning to thrill ride. Major complaint would be the brakes, brake dust is like no other on this car so i'll prob switch over to some ceramic pads and larger discs. Not alot of aftermarket options, and quality is not quite up to saab par since it was bought by GM. All in all this is a fun, classy, comfortable car which is right in line with the A4, S60, and 3 series.

Pros: Fun, Comfortable, Classy

Cons: Breakdust, lower model slightly underpowered

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

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
