    2008 Saab 9-3 - Aero FWD Convertible

    Love the looks; great features and added options (xenon lights that act when turning); great performance and acceleration; love the soft top convertible; love the car... only have had it for 2 months but have driven it a lot (just over 2K miles) to get very familiar; lots of looks; seems of high quality engineering.

    2008 Saab 9-3

    Fun ride

    Pros: The engine. It can be a smooth operator that when pushed, becomes a true sports car.

    Cons: Plastic interior bits.

    I've had my TurboX now for almost two years. It is still fun to drive and extremely comfortable on lengthy trips. Performance is very good overall with more fun above 3000 rpm. Mileage is not bad for a car with thus much power (averaging 24 overall). Simple and easy to operate. I would highly recommend a Saab to anyone looking for luxury and performance that doesn't want to look like all the other German cars on the road.

    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.

    2008 Saab 9-5

    Pretty Good Car. Excellent Value

    Pros: Front-seat comfort.

    Cons: Cabin fan noise

    Several years back, I wanted to go upscale from the usual family sedans/wagons. I thought the SAAB 9-5 was the ticket because it was subdued enough that it wouldn't draw unwanted attention. Well, the SAAB 9-5 I bought blew me away. So much so, I just bought a 2008 9-5. I love it. I appreciate all the details which the automotive press chooses to cite as examples of 'quirkiness:' the window lift switches and the ignition in the center consol. It makes perfect sense to me. I believe the size of the car is perfect for tooling around town or a road trip of several days' duration. The doors are wide enough and light enough to make ingress/egress easy and dignified. The power is more than sufficient and traction control makes driving in snow very secure. As you can tell, I have become a SAAB enthusiast!

    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?
