Buyer Beware

2001 Saab 9-3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


If you're thinking about buying a 9-3 Hatchback: don't think twice, just walk away. If you work on your vehicles yourself you'll end up tearing your hair out because everything in the engine compartment is so poorly planned, parts are hard to find and expensive. Good luck finding a mechanic that will touch it. I bought this car 2 years ago and have had nothing but problems for the last year and a half (and it's been well taken care of). There are so many people saying they're happy I felt it necessary to share my absolutely terrible experience with this car. I find it no surprise Saab isn't around anymore.

Best Features

I do like the central ignition and window controls, and the info display is handy as well.

Worst Features

Complete mechanical redesign.
