2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen Turbo 4dr Hatchback


Bought used because I can't afford
new. Drove all the competitors; BMW
330, Lexus IS, Volvo C-70, Mercedes.
This car is for the driver who does not
stay in the status quo lane. The
Viggen's handling is great. Front
wheel drive takes some getting used
to. Torque steer? Educate yourself
about what torque steer really is.
This car doesn't suffer from it.
There's a little turbo lag but when you
finally adjust to the clutch it's
minor. I love the quirkiness of the
Saab. Allows me to break out of the
norm (and blow away the Beamers).

Best Features

Styling...the seats (all the support you need while driving aggressively)...the prestige sound system...the warranty...and on and on...

Worst Features

The wheels - they look great but do NOT hold up at all. There's a class action lawsuit pending against Saab right now on this (and only) flaw.
