A great all around car, so fun to drive. It seems like you don't even have to think to drive this car. It is humane and a breeze in the city, and can really rip it up on the open road. If it disappears, the 9-3 will go down forever as an underrated, unappreciated, and underpriced car.
The car responds effortlessly to driver commands, with no oversteer/understeer or drifting within lanes. Acceleration is fluid and dramatic, and braking is straight with negligible body roll. The car is quite simply an absolutely blast to drive.
