9-3 Viggen - Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
By dwatech on
Vehicle2001 Saab 9-3 Viggen 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewThis is my second Saab. My '99 9-5 was comfortable luxury at a great (used) price. The Viggen has all the comfort and luxury and outstanding performance too. The turbo kick at almost any speed is exhilirating. Torque steer is an issue, but there are aftermarket cures for that. Exterior look of the car is very "euro" and hatchback yields excellent cargo capability. Interior is comfortable, lack of cupholders just emphasizes that you should be driving the car when you are in it, not drinking (or talking on the phone). No automatic available anyway, so keep your hands free for driving! Viggen's have a loyal following too, so expect used prices to be pretty stable.
Best FeaturesStealth power. Rarity. Everyday usability. Manual transmission. Heated seats. Seat memory. Steering wheel audio controls. Overall luxury. Reasonable used prices.
Worst FeaturesMore power? Aftermarket kits are available. Better handling? Again, check the aftermarket. It is a powerful FWD car, torque steer and understeer are part of the package!
