Love this car and its unique look. Best of all are the leather seats! Every single person that sits in this car says he never felt so comfortable. Long rides are a pleasure in this car. The road feel and handling is great. Highway gas mileage is more than acceptable!
Leather seats, ergonomics, unique look.
In-dash Cup Holder, more back seat room, more trunk space.
Had the car for almost 2 years. Really been nothing but a pleasure from day one. This is the car I should have bought 10 years ago, though it wasn't available ten years ago. Bose stereo is wonderful. Ride and performance are really nice. Punching the gas every once in a while is a blast. Road noise is not nearly as bad as my former Subaru. Interior design is lovely though there is too much hard, sort-of-cheap-feeling plastic. Rear fold-down seats really create a humongous hatchback-like cargo area. Dealer has been great. The warranty and maintenance are really top notch. Newer models don't have as long of a warranty. Roof rack bars look awesome.
Performance, seats/comfort, stereo, cargo space, 60th anniversary package, color (gray), warranty, free maintenance, hwy gas mileage.
Hard to find fault just yet. It's everything I wanted in a car. I'll be keeping it at least until warranty runs out, maybe longer if reliability holds up.
Exhilarating and luxurious for the price with good gas mileage. 07' sportcombi wagon 2.0T 6 spd manual (only way to go for me) 17" wheels, Nocturne Blue; all options except heated seats, which would be nice. At 25K miles the car has been trouble free except the seat memory doesn't work; SAAB promises to replace. The mileage stated by Edmunds is severely under-rated; I'm averaging between 30- 35mpg combined on hilly highway/city travel, good for car with 210hp. The roof rack bolts on, making it easy to install/remove. I shopped the Audi A-3 (nice car too) and found it very similar in performance/handling, but the interior and trunk space was much smaller and Audi couldn't touch the price.
Performance, and economy. Handles great on mountain roads, has plenty of power (210hp) for passing uphill, even starting at relatively low RPM and 30-35mpg to boot! Interior roomy for car this size, wagon trunk big enough for bicycle or skis with seats folded. Predictable on snow with snow tires.
Bring the 9-3 TTiD to the USA so we can drive a SAAB performance diesel with upwards of 50mpg! Cup holder flimsy; broke after 2 months, remove "running lights" feature so headlamps can be switched off. None other than that. This is my 5th SAAB so I'm hooked on SAAB performance reliability & value.
Purchased this vehicle over a month ago. I had already done my homework and found the Saab Sportcombi was a great all around vehicle, and found one for less than a used 2007 Altima with standard features. Vehicle can be driven fast and fun, or more conservative, or like myself in something in between. With an automatic, I get 32 MPG on the highway, 26-27 in mixed driving, and 23 city that is great for a car that gives a nice ride, luxury appointments, and room to spare. One of my consideration was room for four, including 2 kids, 9 and 16. We all ride comfortably, I do have to give up a little legroom, as I am 6'-2" but still find it comfortable.
Simple easy design making driving less of a chore. MPG great, predictable handling, leather, auto temp, XM radio, room to spare, great looks, custom settings for auto seat heaters, and auto defrost. Microphone built in for bluetooth, and radio that you can integrate. Great brakes. I love this car.
Telephone buttons on the steering wheel that are not functional, and can not be made to function. Grinding noise from brakes when I first get started, very brief but not pleasant sound. I think that has to do with the ceramic brake pads. Otherwise, it is perfect for me.
