2007 Saab 9-3 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Now at 60,000K. The sedan is definitely a small car but loves 80+ mph at 34+ mpg (on regular unleaded). Interior is kinda cheap for a $30,000 vehicle and I am not too keen with the useless bells and whistles. But it is clearly a true European sports sedan. And no major issues thus far.


Best Features

Best performing 4-cyl turbo out there -- high output cranks 210+ HP and STILL averages about 29 mpg. Love the 6th gear. Mechanic indicates engine is "bullet-proof".


Worst Features

Noisy, stiff suspension is overdone, rattles and creeks all over the cabin -- even the sound system does not cut it. If you are looking for a sweet, comfy ride, the 93 does not meet the bar.

Review

Just completing 3 years of ownership and still love to drive it. Looked at A4, 3 Series, etc and settled on Saab as the quirky underdog. But for the price (around $30k out the door at the time), much faster than similar priced cars, and none of the BMW snooty/arrogance in the in the image. More often than not, people are surprised by the power, the speed off the line, and the PASSING POWER - love driving this car on highways (great seats, good size, great visibility for a modern car...at least the sedan is, not sure of wagon). Not for those wanting quick respect from other "car people", but lots of fun if you want a practical compromise and still have a blast on an interstate.


Best Features

Great size, sporty looks without being overt, great turbo response for passing. Six speed (manual) very flexible for finding the right gear - could maybe even use a seventh for high speed cruising (runs 2300 - 2500 rpm at cruise).


Worst Features

Shift "feel" is so-so mechanisms (or at least parts) shared with COBALT!?! That's okay if they work. Interior not luxurious (came to this car from an A4). Also on extended high speed runs through curves I have been able to starve the engine of oil but also did in A4 1.8T. No LSD.

2007 Saab 9-3 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

We have had our Saab for 2 years and 45k miles now. The car has performed flawlessly. The reliability has been fantastic. Love dealing with my dealer for parts and the free service. Would look at Saab again, especially now that they have their ownership issues under control.


Best Features

The anniversary edition sport seats are to die for. Just fantastically comfortable with great bolsters to hold you in during the twisties. The power plant has great torque and the suspension is firm but not too tight to bounce you all over the place.


Worst Features

One touch windows for all windows. Tighten middle seat belt so it doesn't flap in wind with windows down. Move the door locks so they aren't right where your elbows would be with the windows down.

2007 Saab 9-3 2.0T 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

A fun, unusual car that stands out from the crowd! Ultracomfortable car looks superb in White with beige leather trim, reliable with good gas mileage, this is an under appreciated car that actually has a usable back seat compared to any others in its class, dealerships are few and far between, they have a good track record for looks, reliability and insurance, I am a very particular owner, have had many cars but this one is way and above the best in all areas, many safety features, security is good for a rag top, would trust it to take me anywhere, more importantly I trust the car with precious cargo, my wife, she gets a kick from driving it and has never failed us. Advice, buy a used one as you save money!


Best Features

Lovely exterior design, VERY comfortable and stylish interior,viewed as an entry level luxury car,if this is entry level then that's what I will keep buying,lots of legroom and head room when top is up, love that I can use the rear seats(not suited for tall adults), $'s less than BMW etc,equally as good


Worst Features

Get rid of the awful cup holder, improve the options of upgrading stereo,(even though it has 150 watt amp) an aftermarket capable Navigation option would be nice,push promotion of sale of these vehicles as they really are a great car.Change from 16" stock rims to 18" as this gives bigger footprint.
