    2006 Saab 9-3

    Saftey and Fun in One

    Pros: Safety

    Cons: none

    This is our 2nd Saab 9-3 Convertable ,what can one say. It handles nicely great in the snow and several standard safety features. don't listen to the critics or posters that have never even drove the cars they comment on. Saab has a great warranty program to back it.Our last Saab convertable was involved in a collision,my wife was hit in the driver door at 50mph. It pushed her 50 ft. through an intersection. After the jaws of life cut the door to get her out she walked away with just a bruise from the seat belt. Does safety have a price ?. All cars peform well in front or rear impacts but a lateral hit is the true test of a great automobile.

    2006 Saab 9-3

    Great car

    Pros: Turbo engine

    Cons: The radio is tied to the bus. So you can't add a GPS, satellite or aftermarket stereo.

    I love this car. It rides great, is peppy and delivers excellent fuel economy.

    2007 Saab 9-3 - 2.0T Sport Sedan

    Pros: none

    Cons: the car

    Advice: don't buy it

    2006 SAAB 93 2.0T - 20000miles. 'Gear box malfunction' message came on. I took the car to the dealer, paid $105 for the diagnostics. They said it just needs software updates. They did that, I took the car from there. Went with it 2 miles, the same message came on. Took the car back to the dealer. Now they say is the transmission and the estimate for replacing it is $ 3300 (even though, when I called the same dealer they told me the transmission is $1565 and labor is $1005)....weirdddd. Ohh...and when I asked the service guy from the dealer how about the warranty on the new transmission, he told me laughing: 12000 miles. at the question: ' Does that mean that the new one will break at 13000 miles?', the dealer guy just answered 'Maybe'. Anyways, I never thought a transmission can go down at 20000 miles. One thing is for sure: I'll never buy another saab in my life. Not only the car broke, but both the dealer and the central Saab don't want to talk about the problem (they say they do not know the cause....weird...specially because I paid for a diagnostics) so, do you still want to buy a saab?

    2007 Saab 9-5 - SportCombi

    Pros: Ventilated heated and cooled leather seats

    Cons: Navigation system is ridiculously expensive AND you lose XM Radio

    Advice: Go for the Aero with the ventilated seats

    This is my second Saab 9-5 Sportswagon; now called the SportCombi in the U.S. We also have a 2005 9-5 Arc. I am about to trade in my 2004 3-series BMW (too small and too slow). The 2006-07 redesigns and refinements have not gotten sufficient coverage in the press. They simply write it off because it is not an 'all-new' design. The exterior design looks very similar to the current Audis and VWs. Why change the 4-cylinder turbo engine? It is very, very reliable; something Saab has struggled with in some other models. It was rated as the safest car in Europe. But there have been significant improvements. The 2007 has a fully redesigned dash with a much improved Harman/Kardon soundsystem with a 6-disc in-dash CD, XM Radio, 36 presets, iPod/accessory input. The transmission is smoother and there are more horses under the hood (260), but it still gets over 30 mpg on the road as long as you keep it under 80. Admittedly, that is hard to do because this car is fast and likes to go fast, but such is life. There is more soundproofing from engine noise. The good parts remain unchanged; great seats, great cargo capacity, and $10,000 cheaper than the realistic competition. I liked the Audi A6 Avant a lot, but it wasn't worth $12,000+ more comparably equipped. The 9-5 Aero SportCombi doesn't really have any competition at its price point, and I really like the fact that it is rare. Give it a look if you need a mid to large size wagon for your family or to haul around your sporting/outdoor gear. I considered BMW 530ix and Audi A6 Avant but they were too expensive. Volvo V70 is just plain ugly and $5000 more. The Volkswagen Passat was considered but it not considered in the same luxury class and it doesn't have the free scheduled maintenance and outstanding warranty.

    2006 Saab 9-5 - SportCombi

    Pros: Driving something that I don't see 50 times a day

    Cons: Still could have a little more power, but 28MPG is very nice

    Advice: IF you can find a left over 2006 you can save a ton. 8 to 10,000 off

    This Combisport wagon is my 5th Saab and my first auto. The increase from 250HP to 260 seemed to be enough to make me a lazy driver. Quality is pretty good. My car seems far more solid than my wifes 2006 E320. But the sheet metal is this, if you are in a hail storm its not going to be pretty. Great seats, and a lot of fun.
