Great on Highway, Hard on your Wallet

1999 Saab 9-3 Turbo 2dr Convertible


I purchased the my 9-3 Convertible with 18K miles and now has 107K. When running, it is great on the highway, and so much fun with the top down. The great things are the stereo, very comfortable seats (could easily drive cross country). The bad things: I had it break down 3 times (would not start), and each time it would cost around $1000 to fix. The build quality is not good, and my top had to be replaced even though it is suppose to last a lifetime. Buy this car for a great ride, but expect to pay for maintenance.

Best Features

Leather Seats, heated seats, great stereo

Worst Features

Better cup holders, HUD displays burns out all the time

where did you get the idea that a convertible top has ever been meant to last for a lifetime?!?
