Fun to drive no fun on your wallet

2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen Turbo 4dr Hatchback
Owning my Viggen was like being addicted to a drug. You know it's bad but you cant get rid of it. It was the most fun to drive car I ever owned. I've had an older Porsche and many BMW's but the Saab blew them away when it came to fun. I had to replace the engine at 120,000km ($8000repair bill) then a piston went 5 months later. My dad had a 9-5 at the same time and had nothing but trouble also. Stay away from these car's GM ruined them. If you want a Saab look for a pre 1991 model that's when they were reliable. On a positive my Viggen got AMAZING fuel economy for a turbo car. I once got 1012 km on one tank of gas on a road trip.
Styling, Color I had lighting blue, Interior seats and dash layout. Turbo performance. Gas mileage. Owning a unique car.
Engine Reliability, better warranty and customer service from dealer.
