2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen Turbo 4dr Hatchback


They don't build cars like the Viggen anymore. This car is an animal, pure and simple. But, with 5-door configuration, I can take my family and plenty of belongings (in the huge hatch) anywhere in comfort and safety.

This is a very limited production car. With the right modifications, they can be made into not just fast - but also excellent handling vehicles. As long as you stay on top of maintenance these cars are fun and reliable transportation.

The acceleration on this car will shock those who don't know what this car is. This is the fastest car SAAB ever produced, and remains so to this day (Oct 2011). Still, I get 31 mpg on the highway and about 20 in the city. Love it!

Best Features

Motor, blistering acceleration, best front seats ever made, ergonomics and convenience, safety features ...a SAAB hallmark

Worst Features

parts can be expensive, at this point these cars are aging and need TLC/maintenance, manual tranny isn't the smoothest
