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


DO NOT buy!, bought mine with 27,000 miles, when the car hit 40,000 it was down hill!, rattling under the hood, cup holder broke, radio dislpay broke, panel behind the drivers seat broke, compressor broke, forget about check engine light, ALWAYS on despite paying hundreds of dollars to replace stupic sensor, last 8 months i;ve shelled out $3000, and as we speak, was towed from work to dealer for not starting, not battery either! ive had it!, when it comes back im driving it onto HONDAS lot and prepared to take a hit. PIECE of crap, DONT DO IT!!!!! unless your rich and have $ to literally to throw away!

Best Features

none, looks great on the back of a tow truck, and the bottom of a lake.

Worst Features

recall, and never make another one.

You must have got a lemon - I'm on my 5th saab - my kids have gotten all my older ones and love them - one of my daughters drives my old '99 9-5 all over the eastern seaboard with over 225K on it! They are the cheapest bit of quality fun driving you'll ever find - every now and then something bad must come off the rack - hope I never get one - It's soooo sad we will never again be able to buy one
