Does anyone know what aftermarket Navigation and satellite ready radio works with the 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T; convertible. Please let me know. Richard
....and that warranty on the Saab is the most likely to be needed. ;)
Of the three the Saab would have the longest warranty at this point, and its a lot of fun to drive.
I own a O6 tsx with 6MT and nav. The only difference with it and the 07 is the tpms on the 07. I bought my tsx new 11/06. It now has almost 120,000 problem free miles. Excellent car
Ive been looking for a new car for a few months and I have narrowed my search down to these three cars. I was wondering if people on the forums had any opinions about which one I should choose. Any input would be appreciated.
I have been dealing with the "gearbox malfunction" since I got my car in 2006. The dealer's answer was to "clear" the computer it would be fine - the funny thing about it was I have been complaining about this message since I bought the car with only 9,900 miles on it. About two months ago it came on again and I couldn't clear it and took myself to a local ... Read More
We've decided to get a convertible and are down to a 2006 or 07 Solara SLE (reliable but a bit boring) or a 2007 9-3 2.0T. I'm looking at two nice 9-3's, both have similar options: - white, with 17K miles, 16'' wheels - dealer asking $21,000 - metallic gray, with 40K miles, 17'' wheels - dealer asking $16,900 both are in outstanding shape - interiors appear like new, good tires, ...

With 27800 miles for $18918 ($17000+1666 sales tax+$252 licensing fees. Got to love King County and Washington State). Car has all options except for the navigation system. Dealer also had to fix minor body damage to rear wheel well and a ding on passenger door. Brake pads were replaced by dealer in June. Factory warranty good until December of 2010. Love the car, my first Saab. Always feel screwed after leaving ... Read More
Hi carman, Hi kyfdx, Need some advice please. I've been looking at a CPO 2006 Silver Saab 9-3 with 35144 miles on it. It has sunroof and premium audio package. The dealer's advertised price is $16995 + tax, fees, and registration. I'm trying to get the price down. He's saying he can't go down lower than $17100 all in, out the door price. Is this a good deal?
I have recently test driven a Saab which previously wasn't on my short list. I am moving on from a Volvo and did not really want to get back into another luxury car due to the maintenance costs. But as much as I try, I am having a hard time not liking this car. I am concerned about a couple of things after reading several posts in the forum. What will ... Read More
My 2006 93 lease set to expire. Dealer desperate to sell me similar 2009 93. Willing to go as low as 22,500 on $31 MSRP or so and eat my last three payments. I know it makes mathematical sense. The resid value on the lease car is 17,500 or so. Still comes down to "Should I buy a Saab?" Any insights? Thanks.
Thanks kyfdx. I have suggested to him $16800 all in, out the door price, CPO. If he accepts that price for this model and year, would I be doing good or bad please? According to Edmunds pricing I'm not sure. Here is the link for Edmunds with the info for this. http://www.edmunds.com/used/2006/saab/93/100610531/options.html?tmvaction=vdpres- ult 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T 4dr Sedan Trade-In Private Party Dealer Retail National Base Price $9,326 $10,628 $11,611 Optional ...

Thanks. I was under the impression that a CPO of 2006 would be a better buy.. The warranty is for 6years or 100k miles?
I had a 2003 Saab 9-3 linear up until this February with the odometer reading in at about 90,000 miles. I purchased the car for $17k at the end of 2006 with 58,000 miles on the odometer. The car had the following problems: surfacing to knobs was rubbing off (by the time of purchase), passenger side vent broke, rear brakes replaced twice, front brakes replaced once, check engine light came on ...

We have a 2003 9-3 Linear (42k miles) which is really a fun car to drive (my wife particularly loves it). But I've almost had it with maintenance issues. Mechanically the car has performed almost flawlessly, but the lesser issues have begun to kill us. Here's what's gone wrong over the years: 1. 2003: TCS module went bad, replaced under warranty. 2. 2004 or 2005: many burned out headlight bulbs, followed ... Read More
blp1 - I would say that the price is a bit high for that car. If you look around, you can find a 2007-2008 with lower miles for the same price. I came across more than a few 2007-2008 models with anywhere from 8,000 miles to 20,000 miles for $18-$20k. Some were CPO, some were not - but as you said, the balance of the 4yr/50k warranty still applies. FWIW, I ... Read More
I purchased a 2006 Arc Convertible with a 5sp and 22,000 miles in January with a CPO warranty until 2012 for $17,200. I won't expect any resale on a Saab in a few years.
Considering a 2006 9-3 Aero (steel gray) with 6 speed Manual transmission and 32,000 miles for $17,000. Only balance of 4 year / 50,000 mile warranty left. Looked at Vehix.com and other sites and thinh this is an ok deal but not spectactular. Tires are new and brakes are over half life. Car looks to be in spotless condition. Concerned with resale value if I have to sell in a few ... Read More
Hey Saab88, That's strange that those rear brake issues have already happened on a 2007...when I joined these forums before puchasing a used 2006 9-3 Aero (with only 2,000 miles on it) in February, 2008, everyone was bitching about the rear brakes going out to quickly. It didn't deter me from taking the Swedish plunge though. I now only have 14,500 miles on my Aero, which is a little heavier than ... Read More
We bought a 2006 9-3 Sportcombi Aero with all options except the roof rails. It is the fastest best performing car my wife and I have ever owned. She wanted a wagon and it had the 5 star IIHS crash test ratings. Consumer reports said run away based on availability but many people, here in fact, said not to put too much stock in CR. I now think these people were ... Read More
There is a saab dealer in downers grove,illinois [near chicago] that is part of Luxury Motors dot com that has cars listed for 10-12 off msrp. Check them out --- you can negotiate over the phone or online and go pick it up or have it shipped to you. There are several in the low to mid 20's. Brand new.
$19000 for Saab'06 is way too much, offer $12-13000. Here in Boston area you can buy brand new '08 9-3 for this money. Dealers are overloaded with '08 and struggle for sales. Local dealer offered me brand new base '08Saab 9-3 manual(sticker $28k) for $16495. Saab residual(36mon./12K) thruogh an independent bank is horrible - %40.
Hi -- Thinking about purchasing my first Saab, 2006 9-3 with 25k files plus 3 1/2 years left on bumper-to-bumper warrantee. Theyíre asking 19,900, which seems a bit higher than what Iíve seen on various sites for retail value. I have a 2003 GLS Passat wagon with 60k miles in good/fair condition (few scratches) that Iíll trade in. Trade in value is around 6k. If I try and bring down the ... Read More
A lot of people refer to the 2006 2.0T model as the "Arc", as the Arc models of 2003-2005 had the same 2.0T 210 hp. engine, while the Linear had a smaller 2.0t (175 hp) engine... So the terms Arc and 2.0T can be used interchangeably. I'd offer $18,500, see where they counter, and settle on $19K, before taxes. A lot of the '07s and '08s are going at fire sale ... Read More
Chris, If there's any question about the car's specs, have them send you the car's VIN, and then carfax it--so you know exactly what you'll be buying. Have them send you pics too. That could make identification easier. I have no idea about price...depends on mileage and condition of course. Saab Central is a good site to get opinions from actual owners: http://www.saabcentral.com/forums
Hi All, I am interested in buying my first Saab and have a couple questions. First, the dealer with the car of interest is not in my area so I have not seen the car in person but he keeps telling me it is a 2006 ARC convertible. My research on Edmunds indicates that a 2006 should be a 2.0T or Aero. I am also told it has a 6sp manual, ... Read More
I bought a 2006 9-3 Aero with the Cold Weather and Touring packages last February with only 2,000 miles on it. (not a typo). It's a six speed, and on highway trips I can average 29-30 mpg at 75-80 miles an hour. An entire tank of gas of city/town driving only gives me 17-20 though, depending on how aggressive you drive. I try to be slow and conservative around town, but ... Read More
I am currently trying to decide between two Saabs, one a 2006 Saab 9-3 Aero automatic, the other a 9-5 2.3T automatic, both with about 25k miles. I had initially been interested in the 9-3 only, but am realizing that they are virtually the same price used, and perhaps I can get "more bang for the buck" from the 9-5. From my perspective, here are the pros and cons on the ... Read More
2006 Saab 93 2.0 Turbo. 17k miles I was also shock to learn during a routine tire rotation that my rear brake pads are at limit. Front is ok. Also, I notice the rear wheels has lots of brake dust from day one. Talk to B&B Saab in Santa Clara. They offer to replace the rear pads at cost and I accepted. Rotors still ok for now. Still, it is incredible ... Read More
Don't people do some research before they even think about Saab? 1. A 3 yr-old 93 convertible with MSRP $40k+ is worth now $15k in the market. 2. It's a US car with a not-even-luxuy-closed sweden logo and unreliable junk. The comparison is clear, a 2006 bmw 325 is still worth $25k plus, a 2006 saab 93 sedan is around $15k. Maybe there is no comparison at all, a truly luxury ... Read More
First, readers who want a Saab at a good price go to luxury motors on the net, click on the Saab symbol, look at MSRP and their price at Downers Grove Saab in Chicago. I bought one last week, they are great, largest Saab dealer I ever saw. I am 50 plus years of age, this is my fifth Saab and a so called Saab salesman attacks me and calls me ... Read More
there are two people in my office that own later model A4's, 2003 and newer, and both of those guys have had to service their car multiple times a year in the two years i've been on the job. Plus, the dealership doing the work charges $75.00 an hour, so they're quite expensive to maintain once the warranty expires. I picked up a 2006 9-3 Aero with only 2,000 miles on ... Read More
I am currently shopping '05 and '06 9-3's. From what I can tell, they're a great value car (LOTS of safety features, decent gas mileage, drive well, sporty look etc.) Why is it then, when I mention the word Saab to anyone, I get the ominous "they're notorious for being in the shop." Is this true?

I'm torn between going with a 2006 Saab 9-3 and a 2006 Volvo S40 T5. They both seem to have fairly similar performance, features, and price. Any thoughts on why to go for a Saab 9-3 over the Volvo S40? I'm leaning towards the Volvo S40 since it seems like it has better reliability and safety (although Saab seems pretty close to Volvo in safety). Thanks for the help.
I am looking to buy my first Saab ever. I like the 9-3 Aero's for 2005 and newer. I have a 2005 Subaru WRX STi, but I think I might sell it and sacrafice the insane performance and AWD for something more refined yet still sporty. I have found a CPO 2006 9-3 Aero with 15,000 miles on it but the dealer hasn't priced it yet. Can anyone give me some ... Read More
Your statement is 100% IMO about Saabs AND, they do make a lot of trips to the shop. I bought mine at 22k miles 18 months ago. I have 50k on it now. Since I have had it, it has been to the shop 4 times for warranty work: 1 - Faded door handles 2 - Peeling interior trim 3 - Inop. sun roof 4 - Minror tranny issues 5 - ... Read More
I purchased my 2003 9-3 in June 2006 as Certified Pre-Owned. I paid $17k for a vehicle with a $32K price tag and it has just 22k miles on it. Came with 4 years left of a bumper to bumper warranty or until 100k miles. I con honestly say that I am very pleased with the decision now 18 months later. CPO is really the way the to go. While the ... Read More
Well, yes and no. You can purchase a Motorola or Parrot bluetooth, and if you have the TEL1 installed and the wiring harness from Saab, you can use everything but the telephone buttons on the steering wheel (the volume will work, the sound will use the stereo speakers, and the installed microphones will work). Unfortunately the remaining telephone buttons are for outside-of-the-US only. Read a different Saab forum (xxxxCentral) for way ... Read More

Okay, I know it's a wierd comparison. My 2006 Audi A4 Lease is up, and Audi has really raised it pricing so I'm looking elsewhere. I drove the GTI and loved it, and planned on getting one.

One of the challenges with boutique cars is chosing one with a good local dealership. Saab does not have a strong network in the U.S. Around here one dealer has sold Saabs since the 50s, is family owned, and since the 70s has sold nothing but Saabs. They know the car, how to fix it the first time, and how to avoid problems. The other dealership (50 miles away) sells Saab ... Read More
If your brakes go to the floor it's usually the master cylinder or air in the brake lines. If your brake pads were that worn you would hear metal on metal every time you hit the brakes.

This car has been nothing but a nuisance. I have been to the dealer every month since I got this car. First it was for annoying things like the cup holder broke, and the electrical outlet in the center console shorted out. Recently, I've been experiencing something odd, and of course the dealer cannot replicate it. When I pull out of my driveway in reverse every morning, I have to floor ... Read More
In a couple of posts I mentioned a poor experience I was having with trying to get a new SportCombi.

My local dealer is owned by a larger corporation who owns multiple dealerships including the other closest Saab ... Read More
I have a 2005 Arc with the 2T turbo engine that I bought new. Saab dropped the Arc name in 2006, but I think you can still get the Arc features and options today. To date, the car has not given me any problems with the exception of the battery dying at 1.5 years, but Saab doesn't make the battery. It looks like Saab worked out the reliability issues they had ... Read More

Your speed warning is set to 55mph. This is a feature that you can set to warn you if you start speeding. You can change this through your display by your speedometer using the controls on your steering wheel, also in your manual. Select info button and toggle with up arrow until you see speed warning 55* - change by clearing. Good luck.
Greetings manayuk. Since you are new to the world of leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

Hi aerogirl1. I personally would shoot for $500 over dealer invoice if I was in the market for a 2007 Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan right now. If you are looking at a model that has been in dealer inventory since December 15, 2006 (there is a good chance that you are), Saab is providing $750 bonus cash on it that you should take into account with your offer. Make sure to ... Read More
Saab could save $85.00 per car by simply removing one of the most totally overlooked and unused pieces of standard equipment that comes with all models......."THE OWNERS MANUAL!!!!!!!"
Check your speed warning. It beeps continuously above the set speed.
I just got back from Saab to have my service and front fly wheel sensor corrected due to the recall. When I got back in the car, I noticed it was beeping after I crossed 55mph. It didn't do that before. I do not want to go back to have them fix this, has anyone had this issue before??? If so how do you fix it? Regards, Sunny
Hey Jason. Unfortunately, Saab is no longer leasing 2006 models through its captive finance company. If you really want to lease one, you will have to do so through an independent bank...if there are any that are still offering leases on '06 models. If you want to lease this car through Saab Financial Services' Corp. you will have to go with a 2007 model. SFSC's current base lease rate and residual ... Read More

You make a good point. I'm far from an expert (living in the southwest), but I think I would prefer FWD in snow, same as you. Having 60%+ of the car's weight on the front drive wheels seems like it would help with snow traction. Does the BMW have the Sports Package with 17" rims and performance tires, or does it have the standard 16" all-season tires? The latter could provide ... Read More
I recently fell in love with saab (not chevy/subaru ;) ) when a brownish 9-3 zoomed past us on the way to denny's one night. It was IMHO BEAUTIFUL!

The Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan and the 9-5 appear to be the safest in their respected classes. These crash tests show how far Saab has come and also how much they are set apart from other manufacturers in unparalled safety. http://www.saabhistory.com/2006/12/22/iihs-crash-test-saab-9-3-sport-sedan-2004/- - http://www.saabhistory.com/2006/12/22/iihs-9-3-sport-sedan-crash-test-2003/ http://www.saabhistory.com/2006/12/22/iihs-9-5-crash-test-footage-2002/ There is even footage of the Saab moose test that Saab continues to do even today. http://www.saabhistory.com/2006/12/22/saab-900-moose-test-footage-1997/ Let me know what your thoughts are.
Since you wanted a separate 9-3 convertible discussion, let's comment about it there instead of here. autoedu, "Saab 9-3 Convertible" #1, 28 Nov 2006 6:11 pm. :)
I had the same problem with my 9-3 2003. However, after looking around and almost buying a Passat, I ended up with a 2006 9-3 Sportcombi. So far its been the most reliable Saab I've bought. Plus the extra room in the back is extremely useful. If you're looking at something as large as a minivan, then why not look at a 9-5? Its got a huge trunk? Warren Brown seemed ... Read More
Hello tbaesl. Unfortunately, Saab is no longer providing lease support on 2006 models. You still may be able to lease this car through an independent bank if you want, but I don't know what the lease program for this car is like through any independent banks right now. If you want to lease, you may be better off going with a similar 2007 model and leasing through GMAC. Car_man Host Prices ... Read More

what's up everyone...we bought a 2006 93 and so far so good, i didn't care for the svc staff, but went to another in Hunt Valley, MD, where they were outstanding. The only problem we had with our 93 was a software glitch related to the sunroof. Once that was fixed, we have had no issues, 12k in 11 months...one thing I would suggest - change the oil at 7500 not ... Read More
Can you give me an estimate for a 2-3 year lease on a new 2006 Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan. With the GM discount, 4000 bonus cash, and a $2000 demo discount and assuming a $33,000 msrp, the selling price would be $25,000. I believe that it would have to be leased not from GMAC but a private company. My calculations would put it round $275 per month.
Compared to my 2002 9-3 hatchback, the current 9-3 is slightly quieter, more nimble and has less turbo lag (based on my experience with a service loaner). The driving experience is probably more middle-of-the-road, and appeals to a wider range of drivers than did the 2002. Interior finish is another matter. My 5-year old "wood" dash and leather seats look new. The interior door panels could be from a luxury model. ... Read More
Carman, Can you tell me about how much a lease shold be on a Saab 9-3, 2006. The MSRP is 32,165 and Invoice is 30257. I am looking at a 3 year lease with 12K or 15K per year. Can you also tell me the MF and residual values for these calculations. Thanks!
... but I do need something that is at least reliable. Then you should probably look elsewhere. I'm sure the 2006's have improved on the first/second year models, but all that might mean is that it's gone from very unreliable to just unreliable. The track record of the model and the brand doesn't suggest you'd get something that's reliable. Especially after you've owned a CR-V. Don't get me wrong -- I ... Read More
Some observations about Saab from a new owner with no past experience with the brand. I spent much time researching this car and others; I noted the comments, both good and bad, regarding the Saab. Except for a limited number of cars I not sure there is much difference in the reliablity between any of them including Honda and Toyota; they are all very complex. My last two were an Audi ...

I'm currently in the market for a new car. My current vehicle...a Honda CRV...has been great...but now that it has reached 100K, I'm beginning to review other options, especially since my daily commute involves roughly 90 miles each day (I don't really like the design of the new CRV). In sum, I'll looking for a quiet, comfortable, fun to drive car with a few luxury touches, which leads me to consider ... Read More
Europoen delivery in Sweden is the most fun I ever had buying a car. The people at SAAB in Sweden do every thing they can to make your stay in Sweden something to really remember. Europeon delivery is only a "deal" if you can pay cash for the car. If you ever wanted to go to Sweden this is the way to do it because SAAB gives you the $2000 travel ... Read More
Since one should always try to have something positive to say, I'll start with how much I love my 2006 9-3 2.0T Sportcombi. I had a blast driving it around Europe for 6 weeks! Sadly, almost every aspect of the process that involved Saab USA was marred with problems. They failed to inform me of a change in hotels. So, the taxi took us on a 2.5 hour RT from the ... Read More
Hi deallover05. I assume that you are talking about a 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T Sedan. If so, the selling price that you were quoted for this car looks very attractive to me. Having said this, I am not sure why you are being charged a 5.9% lease rate. Saab Financial Services' Corp.'s current base lease rate for the '06 9-3 2.0T Sedan is 3.94% with the payment of a security deposit ... Read More

Hello again - Sorry for the multiple emails, but I went to the dealer and they are 100% useless, when I asked them to check the back windows for one-touch they came back to me and told me that it is working as designed and to look at page 132 in the manual which doesn't tell me anything. Anyway, I was wondering if you can put me in touch with location ... Read More
Hi brinks2, Thanks for the reply. I also got about 390 number when I plugged in 3.9% APR and residual value at 69% not 71% though. Dealer seems desperate but I feel bad pushing it more.

Radioactive You only pay sales tax on your use. So if your payment is $400 plus tax, you will pay $400 + 8% of that, which is $32 for a total payment of $432. In Michigan, with 6% sales tax you would take the same $400 base payment and add the tax, which would be $24 for a total payment of $424, only saving you $8 dollars or 2% a month. ... Read More
Hi redrumkev or any one who can answer the question. Can some one living in IL lease a car in Michigan and drive it back to IL, Obviously the deals are sweeter in Michigan than Chicago ? Any issues other than the tax...

I am getting this from my brother, who said that he only has a limited number and can only give them to family, including brothers/sisters, childern, parents and grandparents of the employee. Sorry! Kevin
I was told by my dealer that anyone can use the GMS discount as long as they receive a code from a GM employee. This is different from the past where you needed to be related to a GM employee, and this offer is unlimited. It doesn't cost the employee anything, but it saves me alot. Does anyone have the ability to provide me with a GMS code? Thanks for the ... Read More
I am looking at this offer: http://www.suburbansaab.com/Specials-New.aspx for the 9-3 2.0T Aero, which is $240 a month with $1999 down and saab loyalty. This is for GMS (employee discount) eligable people only. My question: Is this a fair price for a lease. I have strong credit and do not want to put any money down, I was going to roll the $1999 and $1000 (loyalty) into the payment. So I figured ... Read More

Hello, I recently test-drove a 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M) It was the "base" model ("Linear", I think). It had power sunroof and heated driver seat. It is a manual transmission. The price on the sticker was previously $28,000 but has been marked down to $26,000 by the dealer. Dealer includes 3 year, 36,000 free maintenance. The Saab website has an MSRP for a model *without* ... Read More
Sorry for the delay, Yes all 4 windows and the roof open or close depending on which button I hold down. If the roof is in tilt position it does not move but the windows still do their thing. I change my oil at 7,500 if my memory serves me I have had 2 free and 2 oil changes I paid for. I am due for my last free as I ... Read More
Hi edmundhere. Saab publishes lease rates for its vehicles instead of the money factors that most banks use. You can convert its published lease rates into approximate money factor equivalents by dividing them by 2400. Its current base lease rate and residual value for a 27 month lease of a 2006 9-3 2.0T Convertible with 15,000 miles per year are 6.34% and 72%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease ... Read More
Hi chainsaw2. Saab Financial Services Corp.'s current base lease rate and residual value for a 27 month, 12,000 mile per year lease of a 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T Sedan are 3.94% and 70%, respectively. The 15,000 mile per year residual value for this term is 69%. This car's residual values for leases through GMAC (which is what SFSC has essentially become) should be standard. Perhaps some of the people who have ... Read More
Hello victors01. Saab is currently providing $1,000 lease cash on 2006 9-3 Aero Sedan models. Saab Financial Services Corp.'s current base lease rate and residual value for a 27 month lease of this car with 15,000 miles per year are 3.94% and 66%, respectively. The lease rate would be the same for an otherwise identical 36 month lease, but the residual value would be 54%. Car_man Host Prices Paid Forum
Blessedly the lease on my 2003 9-3 ended last February, so I'm finally free of that car. It's a shame, before that I had leased a 2000 SAAB 9-5 that was a wonderful car, so much so that my wife got a 2002 9-5 (which we bought out after that lease). The 9-5's are wonderful cars but, alas, were designed before GM took 100% control of SAAB. So the 9-5's are ... Read More
thx for the infor, when i hold down the open button, only my front two windows and roof open, so when you hold your open button, do all four windows open as well as the roof???... side note, the dealer recommends changing your oil every 10k, have you noticed anything with waiting that long???...i was thinking more along the lines of 7500.
FORBES rates the SAAB 9-3 as one of the least reliable luxury cars for 2006. Yeah, GM has really had a beneficial impact on SAAB, making it just another GM "brand." http://www.forbes.com/forbeslife/vehicles/2006/07/28/luxury-cars-breakdowns_cx_d- l_0731reliable.html "Saab, a General Motors (nyse: GM - news - people ) brand that made our list with its 9-3, objected to the ranking. A Saab spokesman says the company's internal data show that the most recent Saab 9-3s ... Read More
I have a 2003 ARC, all the windows open and close with one touch moon roof too). Occasionally after the dealer futzes with the car the one touch needs to be re-programmed. You do this by cycling the window up and down rapidly for 2 -3 times in a row. I am assuming that the anti-pinch features in the 2003 are still there in the 2006. What this also means is ...
