2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen Turbo 2dr Hatchback


This is the definitive Saab. Best Saab ever, only the '78 99 turbo compares. It is not a typical 9-3. It has improved suspension, wheels, brakes, aerodynamics, seats, electronics, computer settings for the engine (higher horse power). Overall it is a pleasure to drive. Instant acceleration, great cornering, handling and control when braking at high speeds. Because of the high torque it does have torque steer which is most noticable at lower speed acceleration. 31+ mpg highway - 29 mpg country road commute. This car is for you if you enjoy windy country roads taken at fast speeds.

Best Features

Plush leather seats with side restraints that keep you locked in when diving into corners. Suspension gives it a stiff ride but worth it for the performance. Instant acceleration, can pass almost anything anywhere. Stealth appearance, looks like a 9-3, moves like a Porsche.

Worst Features

Better SID (display units crap out).
