Cons of buying a 2008 saab 9-3

Asked by Oct 01, 2014 at 11:03 AM about the 2008 Saab 9-3 2.0T

Question type: General

I'm looking at cars to buy and I came across a saab 9-3, I don't know much about saabs so I'm hesitating to buy it. I'm just wondering overall how is the car and what are some things to look out for when it comes to maintenance?

Cons: no longer shipped out of Sweden, parts are expensive, properly trained Techs in short supply for Saab's. Personally I think they don't have much appeal, seats are uncomfortable if drove any length of time. My advise is keep looking, try to stay away from European units as the costs of everything will be higher.

LOVE my 9-3!! Mine's a 2002 150,000 Km. Just spent a whack load fixing an oil leak, but that should give me another 10-14 years! I have a great Saab mechanic...but they are hard to come by!
