Review of the 2000 Saab 9-3

  • An offbeat alternative to the staid German sedans that dominate the category.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Comfy interior, versatile hatchback model, torquey turbo motor, quirky personality.

  • Cons

    Controls not always intuitive, offbeat image, spotty build quality.

  • What's New for 2000

    The base model gets restyled 15-inch alloy wheels, while the SE version gains performance enhancements and increased horsepower. The sporty 9-3 Viggen offers even more power, and is available as a five-door or convertible in addition to the coupe. All engines are now LEV compliant and GM's OnStar "Telematics" System becomes optional across the model lineup.

Could have been better

Vehicle: 1999 Saab 9-3

I have a grey 2001 5-door Viggen . I am generally happy with the car. The car is a great start to a true performance car. It has very nice power and handling atributes. It rips out of those second gears turns with incredible power. I haven't driven any other front wheel drive car that can spin tired out of a turn at 50+ mph. BUT IT COULD BE BETTER!!!!
