A Whole Lot of Car for the Money

AdvantagesSolid, refined and an fantastic drive

DisadvantagesFuel economy around town a wallet emptier

"...couple of thousand on the Saab dealership prices. There are some great bargains to be had on these cars if you go out there and look for them. The car is a solid as they come, the moment to nuzzle into the soft leather seat you feel instantly at home, surrounded by a mass of walnut dash with an array of chunky controls easily in reach of the steering wheel, you get a certain sense of the quality that has been built into this Scandinavian masterpiece. ..."

Long term user review of the Saab 9-3 Aero.

Advantages Safe, fast, comfortable, and very beautiful.

DisadvantagesA bit expensive

"...company car then..) brand new Saab 9-3 Aero (210hp) back in -04 I was very happy. I had taken a few months of reviewing several cars and brands before I decided to go for the Saab 9-3. Basically the choice where made on the looks of the car itself, the price compared to similar cars from other brands, safety and comfort since I spent all my time on the roads back then and the feeling of driving it. Actually, come to think of it, this was the most ..." Read review

Standout from the crowd of 3 Series drivers

AdvantagesQuick, comfortable and ecomomcial

DisadvantagesDated dash layout

"I have just purchased a Saab 9-3 SE 2.0T 2001 after looking at Golfs, Passats and A4s it was all down to price and value for money at first. That was until I drove the 9-3, WOW! I felt like I was in one of the Saab's fighter jets, yes just like the advert with dash all lit up like a Christmas tree. At first I was gentle with her getting use to the controls etc, then a quick squirt of the loud pedal and we were off. I thought I had made a mistake ..." Read review

A Mixed bag

Advantagesrelaively unique on the road

Disadvantagesnot the same quality as its superiors

"We bought this car from new in an x reg. It was our first convertible car and was a step up from a mondeo sport. I have a number of good and bad issues with the car all. Firstly this car is in a strongly repesented market. With BMW probably the best by a good distance. Mercedes, Audi and Volvo too. With such high competition this car needs to be alot to compete. On speed it is the fastest marginally than all the others. This is compared to the other ..." Read review

An unsung hero

AdvantagesComfortable, safe and classy

DisadvantagesWind whistle and lack of central-locking on glove box

"I bought my first Saab 9-3 SE Convertible 2.0t in April 2003, a fleet disposal 39,000 miler with full service history on a T plate (1999). It is the Light Pressure Turbo variant with around 150bhp (the lowercase t in 2.0t shows this, rather than T which is the 185bhp variant). I came from a Subaru Impreza Turbo company car, but was buying this myself. Id had convertibles in the past and despite fantastic performance from the Subaru, ..." Read review

Saab 9-3 Aero Sport Saloon

AdvantagesDifferent, Power, price

DisadvantagesFuel economy

"...have ever own. Owning a Saab means is like standing out from the pack. Sick and tired of seeing BMW's everywhere, the decision to purchase a Saa 9-3 will be one that you would be happy with. Apart from being differnet to the typical german brands, the key benefit you get is having alot of car for less money. The 2 litre Aero provides Leather seats, 17 inch alloys, Climate, 6 CD changer and 6 speed gearbox for starters. The sweetest thing about ..." Read review

Saab 9-3 Aero

AdvantagesVery nippy and good on petrol

Disadvantagesnone i can recall

"My Saab aero 9-3 wow what a car this is very reliable and very fast for a 4 door saloon mine is a silver aero with a 6 speed gearbox and half leather interior which can be a bit cold in winter but it sets off the car, with the six speed box it is quite economical averaging 32 - 34 miles per gallon that is good considering the 2.0 turbo engine has 210 bhp. The ride is very smooth and holds the road like glue plus with the big wheels and tyres which ..." Read review

Fun but flawed

AdvantagesOpen top motoring, good looks and reliable - genuine four seater

Disadvantagesinternal squeeks and groans are annoying, the hard ride

"I bought my Saab 93 2.0t last November. I have found the car to have a number of issues. On the plus side, the car looks great, and as I have the Aero version, the acceleration is good. However, due to the removal of the roof, the car does seem to flex and move (it creeks and groans quite a lot, which becomes annoying on long journey). The ride is quite hard on the sports suspension and the low profile tyres but this does help with handling. The ..." Read review

A good car for an active lifestyle

AdvantagesStyle, saftey, comfort and reliablilty

DisadvantagesUrban motoring can be expensive

"An all round good car, comfortable and easy to drive with a responsive engine, the five door version has excellent passenger space and a large boot. For motorway driving the comfort cannot be matched and economy is good, but around town it can be thirsty. Little or no road noise at speed and the supportive and comfortable driving position leave nothing to be desired. The classic styling does not age the car and the reputation of Saabs for reliability ..." Read review
