2005 Saab 9-3 Linear 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

This car has great response and power for day to day driving. On the highway it goes all the way from 35 to 90 quickly, smoothly, and fairly quietly. On the street it handles great and the ESP and ABS keep it safe. Driving this car in Salt Lake City during the winter felt secure, even in a midnight blizzard. I would rather be in this than in a pickup or SUV that might roll over. Interior is bare bones but nails all the little details. Once you get used to the major differences in control location, everything feels exactly right. Lots of room and very comfortable. The Senstronic shifter is very useful when going down a mountain.

Favorite Features

Handling, passing power, control interface, great car for snow, safety.

Suggested Improvements

The stereo quality is pretty bad- I am saving up to upgrade the speakers and add an AUX jack. Black quasi-leather wheel is painful to touch in summer heat and winter frost. Steering phone controls are just for show. Adjustable center console armrest has a tendency to roll forward when braking.
