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
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."
