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


Still a quiet, smooth ride. 2.0t has more than adequate power. Summer mileage 26 to 28 mpg on regular; winter mileage 23 to 25 in NH. No mechanical or electrical problems other than H7 low beam bulbs have a 4-6 month life expectancy. Exterior and interior have held up well. Highly recommend.

Best Features

Fuel economy. Smooth power from turbo four without a lot of noise. Dog can sleep soundly.

Worst Features

Original Pirelli P6's didn't have enough tread left at 22000 miles to make it thru another winter. Current tires are Michelin Primacy MXV4; much smoother, quieter tire, but pricey. Rear brake pads shot at less than 30,000 miles; original front pads only about half worn.
