first sight fell in love, still loving strong

2003 Saab 9-3 Vector 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


At first, I was very hesitant about buying this car because I read many unsatisfying reviews on Saab.
However, bought 2003 9-3 vector in Feb 2013 under 6k, looked new inside and out, one owner and no accident.
Checked with Saab if the car had any mechanical service done.
All the recalls had been taken care of and no other mechanical issues.
After 8 months putting over 10k still feels like a new car.
But make sure you use premium gas and full synthetic oil.
Not using premium grade gas will give you check engine light.
But don't panic, it will go away if you put premium.

My $6k saab looks better and runs better than brand new camrys or accords .. love this car.

Best Features

6 speeds manual with 210 hp. Great mileage. Average of 30-31(mixed). Interior and exterior design of the car. seat comfort. Night driving mode. It's lighter than Nissan Altima but feels sturdy when driving.
