Advice: Classy, sporty and different. Enjoy!I've had my 2002 Saab 9-3 SE for about two months now. No complaints. I was originally planning on purchasing a 3 series BMW or A4 Audi. I'm glad I went with the Saab. All three offered nice options, some snob appeal and a sporty ride, but the Saab has one thing on these other two. You do not see them every other mile. If this is important to you, consider this car.
Pros: The convertible top
Cons: The cup holder
Advice: Test drive it.I truly enjoy driving my Saab 93 SE. it has been with me since August, whn I traded in a BMW. I looked at the new 3 series and the Volvo. I have been delighted with the reliability, service experience, but most of all the sheer fun of this car. It is sure footed in the snow, has space for four (if neccesary) and is just great with the top down.
