    My Green Machine — Power is great but until you get used to driving a car with turbo you may not like the off the line performance. The SAAB is wonderful on long trips, the heated seats are great and the AC will put icicles on your nose. The body of the car was always a favorite, I had an unusual colour, it is sort of a Mt. Dew green. People either love it or hate it. If you are considering a European make car do yourself a favor and check out the SAABS.

    Pros: great interior and headlights, excellent heated seats and sound insulation with convertible top

    Cons: Better milage and less turbo drag

    Saab 9-3 — The car is amazingly fast for my first car... So far I have hit 138 but ran out of straight away. The shifting of the Saab is so smooth and super easy... Love manuals... Great handling around corners and no squealing of the tires unless I try hahaha... Turbo rules

    Pros: Turbo and Great Speed

    Cons: Small engine

    Saab 9-3 Aero — Very good acceleration. 45-75 mph range acceleration is faster than a porsche. Very comfortable leather racing seats. Electrical system is amazing. As soon as vehicle starts up it does an analasys on ever engine component. looks good, performs good.

    Just What I've Always Wanted — I've always wanted a Saab since I was a kid and my mom got a 9000 turbo. I got my car certified pre-owned with 4k miles and it's exactly what I've always wanted. Lots of small features that make it a fun drive. Performance is great and love the small maintenance schedule.

    Pros: features, build, value

    Cons: black trim pieces - glad they got rid of that for 08!

    I Like It By saabfanchi

    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
