Well to start of it is a 2001 Saab Viggen and i adore this car. Yes as with most cars stuff has broken or has gone wrong but nothing that if u know how to use the internet can easy be fixed for a cheaper price. well this is my Second Saab 9-3 and my first Viggen. I love the car for its low stance its after market rims and the most important that tiny coke bottle displacement engine with its shop vac sized turbo. I dont drive it hard cuz it gets noticed more going low and slow witch is what i like (less speeding tickets) but out on the high was its stable, flat and has more than ample power for passing. but like all Turbo engines the best bet is to change your oil every 4000km with synthetic
Well if u go see Nick down at Genuine Saab u can get lots of Stuff! I like my Viggen with its Open air intake. 3' turbo back exhaust, the 17' rims and the 6 point sub frame brace. but i like the nice sounding stock CD player the night panel button and its nice plush leather seats. for the $9.000 i payed for the car find me a new car with the Performance, features and functionality that Saabs have.
None Cuz i have no problem dealing with my car. just i dont like the face i have to try and get my hands on a tec 2 GM OBD 2 reader if something really goes south
This is my second Saab. My '99 9-5 was comfortable luxury at a great (used) price. The Viggen has all the comfort and luxury and outstanding performance too. The turbo kick at almost any speed is exhilirating. Torque steer is an issue, but there are aftermarket cures for that. Exterior look of the car is very "euro" and hatchback yields excellent cargo capability. Interior is comfortable, lack of cupholders just emphasizes that you should be driving the car when you are in it, not drinking (or talking on the phone). No automatic available anyway, so keep your hands free for driving! Viggen's have a loyal following too, so expect used prices to be pretty stable.
This Saab Viggen is the best of their cars. She flies and handles like the jet she's named after. The car has been clocked at 152 with a bit more reserve and never felt strained or loose. On the highway (if I stay out of the boost range except for some spirited passing) I average 31.5 mpg. I can do the PA to FL run in 18 hours to Melbourne and be as fresh as when starting. She's one silent strong sexy steed! With the hatchback I can carry a large load and yet retain the sleek looks or run light and nimble all day, either way a winner. The Viggen is a unique auto, the fun of a Porsche Cayman, the practicality of a wagon, the economy of a VW, a sweet ride!!!
Saab nailed this model. A hot performance car that gets great mpg and is comfortable and quiet with well mannered handling. I want it all and got it in this '01 Viggen. Plus she looks fab in dark silver!!! dark metallic silver with the 5 spoke 17" rims,lo and dark glass with silver undert
More power (always more is better). 4 wheel drive like the Audi (2 front, 4x as needed). A raise the suspension option when in 4x mode (low clearance is tough in winter). Autostick, again like Audi (for city traffic mostly). A hatchback again (GM bought Saab and dropped 3drs - so dumb !).
