2004 Saab 9-3 Arc 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

The 9-3 is truely one of the best cars
in the class. It is a well balanced
vehicle that does most everything
well. It is not the best at any on
thing, but it does poorly in nothing.
To truly understand this car, it must
be driven.


Best Features

Its quick, looks good, handles great, stops well, and is built well. It gets around well in the snow as well.


Worst Features

Build quality could be a little better, though it is still very good. It also needs the Harman/Kardon audio system from the 9-5 in it. Oh, and Cosmic Blue was discontinued.

2004 Saab 9-3 Aero 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

and bought the 9-3 Aero. I am pleased
with my purchase and the Saab
dealership. Looked at another 3 and a
Benz C320 before the Saab. Listen
folks, if I acted anything like the
people selling the beemers or benz when
I was a beemer owner, I'm sorry. The
Saab is in the same class without all
the hooplah.


Best Features

Style, Style, Style


Worst Features

Power is sufficient, but another 50 horses would make it even better.

2004 Saab 9-3 Linear 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

This car has 16,000 miles and has been
in the shop 7 times for clunks,
rattles,brake and electronic problems.
It is a "rattle-trap" for a car and
the servicers can never figure out the
problem.


Best Features

Outside appearance is sharp.


Worst Features

Better radio. Less plastic inside. Better quality in building.

2004 Saab 9-3 Arc 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

My wife and I have owned Saab's for 20
years from the old 900's to the 9000
CD's. Our family now has 3 Saabs and
the 2004 9-3 Saab Convertible is the
outright best we have ever purchased.
This car handles like a dream the
interior is even better than the 2003
model for comfort. The only thing I
wish Saab would do would be to get rid
of the funky cup holder in the dash.
With all the features in this car that
should not be there. I can't wait to
see what comes out next in the new Saab
line up. We are waiting for the new 9-7
SUV to come over to trade our SUV.
Thank you Saab for an out right
fantastic driving experience.
Definately fun to drive.


Best Features

One of the best features is lowering your windows and putting your top down on the way to the car so you have more time driving. The suspension and and ride is fantastic. A lot less drag on the Turbo with this model.
