1999 Saab 9-3 Turbo 2dr Hatchback


I have had the car about 2.5 years and total of 36,000 miles. Fun to drive, turbo is great! I have the 2 door version, and the trunk area will swallow anything with the seats folded! Repairs are usually happen like clockwork every 10,000 miles on my example but worth the upkeep in enjoyment and uniqueness. I have 124,000 on the odometer now.

Best Features

Center console windows/locks/starter. Always gets The look because nobody has these cars, especially 2 door with rims and tint and lowered. NIGHT MODE is my fav feature, it turns off all dash lights except speedometer...

Worst Features

An aftermarket air intake made a 3 mpg difference in my mpg, averaging up to 29 mpg in mixed driving, and has hit 35 mpg on trips. And the sound system from factory is awful but I quickly remedied this with a complete Rockford fosgate system. A/c is not powerful, merely ok. I don't use it anyway tho.
