1999 Saab 9-3 SE Turbo 2dr Convertible


It is obvious that this is a GM vehicle. I looked at audi and BMW but settled with the saab that was thousands less. But factoring in the two times I found myself on the interstate waiting on AAA and the price of the repair bills Audi or BMW would have been such a better deal. Saab also has a problem with its AIRBAGS because I was hit head on by a truck going about 30 mph and the airbags did not even deploy! Problems with softtop leaking... fuel pump, power top not working the list goes on. Buy something else or be sure you have AAA.

Best Features

The ignition key being in the center console was awesome. Also loved the heated seats and the on-board computer.

Worst Features

RELIABLITY! I knew my mechanic on a first name basis.
