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


Bought this car with 89,xxx miles on it, AUTOMATIC
I knew it needed a few cosmetic items and tires, but was a value for $4400. Solid car that is fun to drive. The AC blows so cold I had to turn it down on a 90+ degree day. Items are simple to fix like the DIC and fluid for the covnertible top. Lots of parts on eBay and videos on YouTube to help. Is quick and responsive. The Sweeds know nothing of cup holders though. The car will throw trouble codes every day. Buy a scanner when you buy a Saab. Nothing to worry about, most are harmless warnings and can be fixed without huge money. The DIC (coil pack) is the common failure for most codes, new is $500

Best Features

Driving top down in a very safe car. I have more power than I think and even top down have to let off the gas when the car is rolling along over 90mph without blinking. Has been a really fun "toy" to take out on nice days and not have spent a fortune but look like I have.

Worst Features

Drink you drink at home. Cup holders are useless. Period. That's the only real complaint I have.
