Saab 9-3 Aero Fun Car, Good Price, Not On Every Corner. — You won't see this car on every block like an Acura TL or Civic. This car is quick, not too bad on gas, and includes 3 years of oil changes and maintenance. The Aero model also comes with a 2 day driving experience at Road Atlanta. This car will set you back for new breaks when it's time but the breaks are very good. Handling is also very good with the back two wheels using passive steering.

Pros: Unique, stylish, affordable, very safe, not bad on gas, quick as a TL

Cons: Minor rattles in car time to time, V6s have a defective coolant tank that will need replacing.

Saab 9-3ss — Not as Saab as the previous ones I owned but still that bit different from the rest. Fun and well poised around corners yet comfortable on long trips. The material quality suffered under GM's rule. It's a car for those who plainly refuse to drive a boring souless japanese/ Korean barge.

Pros: Individuality

Cons: GM quality control

Not Bad — But far from what you get out of a Beamer, believe me. Has mainly to do with the fact that SAAB chose a front-wheel drive, and that doesn't match with the power of the Aero's engine.

Pros: Nice engine, great looks, sober as usual with SAAB

Cons: Fron wheel drive

By Far, The Best Car I've Ever Owned. — raining sensing wipers, heated seats, rear parking sensors, six speed auto trans, xenon head lights, silver sport trim on steering wheel, two tone colored seats, amazing power available whenever it is needed, this car is the perfect size for zipping in and out of traffic and it's extremely comfortable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: An amazing car that fit me like a glove... a great value with lots of features compared to the price of other cars in the class

Cons: car sits very low and the front overhang is always scraping curbs or parking lot entrance/exit ramps.  premium unleaded required and not so great gas mileage in the city

Its The Beast From The East — Performance - Great performance in a straight line and in the corners. Build Quality - Greatly built engine that can withstand unusual amounts of pressure from the turbo, very nice suspension, don't like all of the plastic bumpers and ground effects. Appearance - Looks great get compliments all the time even with the bumper off! Cost of Ownership - Alright gas mileage considering I have a lead foot I get about 24 mpg overall, some of the maintenance is ridiculous but there are ways to get around it. Fun Factor - 7 1/2

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Turbo, Luxury, v6, Cheap

Cons: Bumper/body kit, Front wheel drive

2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T Review
Saab_9_3 says:
The Saab 9-3 2.0T I still own today after 11 years. It has 167,000 miles as of today and is nearly all original. I take care of all my cars but this has been one of the best ones I have ever owned. I have needed only a new alternator (70,000), repaired a driver seat rip (105,000), fixed an oil pan leak (130,000), and replaced the power steering pump as it was leaking oil (135,000). That is it, and the worst of the repairs cost $300.

Power Ranked 2006 Honda Accord LX V6 better.
"The engine had 240 hp. to the Saabs 210 hp. However the Saab gets far better gas mileage and only a little less power. The Honda could do 0-60 in 7.5 seconds, the Saab 7.9 seconds. However the Honda averages 20 mpg while the Saab averages 28 mpg."
Looks/Style Ranked 2006 Honda Accord LX V6 worse.
"It has a more rounded, attractive body than the boxy Honda."

Extremely well rounded vehicle. I have driven Mercedes, Nissan, Chevy, GM, Toyota, Ford....this is by far the best car I have owned. Its fast, handles well good on gas almost perfect in size. And subtle but very stylish in appearance. It doesnt handle like a front wheel drive Imo unless you really step on it. This car feels like it should cost $100 grand or more such a pity they are not made anymore. Find yourself a couple of reputable Euro mechanics and buy with confidence.

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
