2003 Saab 9-3 SE 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Quiet (yes a convertible) solid feel, comfortable seats, highly responsive engine, reasonable few blind spots, good MPG. Some odd features but not annoying and something Saab is noted for. The torque steer nonsense you read about is something that average drivers will never notice or care about. This is nice riding and driving car, that was a great purchase. It has all the options that you would expect in a car that sold and sells in this price range. The higher than normal depreciation means you can buy an expensive car for less. The cost of repair is not out of line with any high end car. BTW the trunk is functional for trips, the back seats go down to extend the storage.

Best Features

Ride, comfort, acceleration, gas consumption are all excellent. This car was re-engineered in 94 but from a owner's stand point I do not regret not purchasing the newer model.

Worst Features

No center arm rest or storage. After market (perfect match) $120.00 solved that minor issue. The Saab information display is a noted problem. $300 to replace, no big deal.
