Pleased with purchase

2004 Saab 9-3 Arc 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
I bought this car used off a lease with high miles - 75,000. I have had no problems with reliability so far - crossing my fingers this doesn't change. I only drive about 5,000 miles a year, though. Handling and braking seem pretty good. I'm happy with the acceleration though sometimes turbo lag is quite evident. The car is also pretty comfortable and has more room than my friends with 3 series and a4's.
heated seats. auto windshield wipers. the little screen on the dash. comfortable on long trips, nice styling without being flashy.
My sticker said that it came with a 13 speaker premium sound system - but I can only count 7, and I'm not very impressed with the sound quality. Rattles a bit - and gas mileage for me hasn't been as good as for other people which is strange. I average around 20-23 mpg.
