I love it - but be gentle...

2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen Turbo 2dr Convertible


We looked for this car for over 6 mos., and were excited when we got it! Wow - what great looks! Rides firm (but not harsh), responsive steering and brakes, and acceleration is phenomenal. With the Viggen's torque and horses, you WILL leave cars behind rather easily. However, the car IS rather temperamental and requires TLC. If you drive on other than the SMOOTHEST of roads, you'll probably bend the rims, requiring immediate attention so as not to ruin your alignment. Additionally, we just passed 100k, and our water pump, brakes and a/c compressor all went out within 2k miles of each other, amounting to almost $3k in repairs. Be aware - but you can definitely enjoy yourself!

Best Features

Acceleration, tight conv. top, comfortable seats, heated seats, GREAT fuel mileage

Worst Features

stronger rims, more accessible/less expensive maintenance, quirky LED system, more secure cupholders
