2003 Saab 9-3 SE 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Bought this car brand new in '03. Decided on this instead of the BMW 330 Convertible because of price and the BMWs are everywhere. What a mistake! While fun to drive, it has been a maintenance nightmare compared to any other car I've ever driven. Fuel pump failure (huh?) at 56K, CLUTCH at 70K, A/C compressor at 48K, wheel bearing at 80K, Ignitor Coil at 80K. Compare to my '86 325: original clutch at 150K; my '83 Tercel: original clutch at 150K. I work with a guy that has an '02 9-5 - same problems. No wonder the resale value of Saabs stinks. Stay away from Saab!

Best Features

Good driver, great mileage (32 mpg on highway, 27 combined).

Worst Features

Why bother? Wouldn't touch one with a ten foot pole.
