The best choice
By 2000ATL_Viggen on
2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen Turbo 4dr Hatchback
Bought used because I can't afford
new. Drove all the competitors; BMW
330, Lexus IS, Volvo C-70, Mercedes.
This car is for the driver who does not
stay in the status quo lane. The
Viggen's handling is great. Front
wheel drive takes some getting used
to. Torque steer? Educate yourself
about what torque steer really is.
This car doesn't suffer from it.
There's a little turbo lag but when you
finally adjust to the clutch it's
minor. I love the quirkiness of the
Saab. Allows me to break out of the
norm (and blow away the Beamers).
Styling...the seats (all the support
you need while driving
aggressively)...the prestige sound
system...the warranty...and on and on...
The wheels - they look great but do NOT
hold up at all. There's a class action
lawsuit pending against Saab right now
on this (and only) flaw.
