2008 Saab 9-3 Aero 2dr Convertible (2.8L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
After researching manufacturers such as Audi and BMW, I chose the Saab Aero Convertible. My criteria included 1) fun to drive, 2) performance, 3) curb appeal, 4) amenities, and 5) price. The 2008 Aero Convertible had it all. The 6-speed manual is fun to drive, and performs like a champ. It has a great look, small on the outside, but comfortable on the inside. I love the Xenon lights and the Bose Stereo. 2008 was the right price point. And this vehicle, steel gray with black top, had been meticulously maintained, with only minor wear noted. The key fob is also really cool. Although the interior materials may not be up to others, it is not worthy of the criticims.
Xenon lights, Bose Stereo, Information Station at a touch, curb appeal, 6- speed manual.
Bluetooth (included in 2009 and beyond), additional cup holders.
