2006 Saab 9-3 Aero 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


The car drives beautifully. The ride is firm, sporty firm that is. Some may find it uncomfortable on the cracked roads of Michigan. Performance wise, the car will provide more power than you'll ever need. Don't be surprised if you find yourself driving at 110mph the first week or two you get it. The ride is so smooth you don't even realize you're driving at high speed. The acceleration is simply astonishing. Whether you're already driving at 70 or 30mph you'll feel the same phenomenal pull!
I have been able to drive the car on all surfaces and I must say it handles horribly on the snow. I ended up facing the wrong direction when I took a Michigan left (at only 5mph!!!)

Best Features

The bucket seats are very comfortable. The dashboard is slightly oriented towards the driver which makes it so much easier for you. Some fancy buttons are there for you to either switch assisted features on or off. For a little fun on a track you may want to deactivate all the features as they kick in as soon as they sense the vehicle is unbalanced and out of its trajectory.

Worst Features

The car's electronic system is fragile. The lock control on my driver's side keeps locking and unlocking the doors when I hit the button just once. I always have to ask my shotgun to lock the vehicle's door. Some other features are also more likely to dysfunction. The power mirrors for instance have been working only for a year. Finally, the stereo is greatly disappointing in a car that retails for 35,000 new! The Turbo lag is to be expected since it is not a supercar. I would say you can feel the Turbo being shy at low speeds but as soon as you gain a little speed the Turbo finally unleashes its full monstrous potential !
