2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I have had three SAAB's and am currently still driving my 89 900S.
What an utter disappointment.
I know on paper this car is much better than previous models.
Sitting down in the car, my first impression was that I had lost my best friend.
The car has none of the charm that my other SAAB's have had.
It felt like a gussied up cavalier.
None of the materials in the car seemed first rate.
With the current financial problems (and I see why, it doesn't feel like a SAAB SAAB) coupled with the not so nice feel of the car, guess I won't be bringing home the next one.
I drove the new S60 and it felt more like a SAAB than this car.

Worst Features

Bring back the top notch interior materials, and a thicker steering wheel.. oh yeah.. and make it corner like the previous SAABs.
