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


Review

Good looks and safe car. The best seats for comfort hands down. The sad part, I have to boost the car every 6 weeks or so. Gone several times back to dealership, changed battery 3 times, changed steering lock mechanism, headlight bulbs burn every 4 months. Of course it never starts when I need it most! I.e., leaving on a trip to Florida with car fully packed with luggage and family, turn the key. No start! Call AAA for boost. What a pity. Cannot trust that the car will start! Fuel consumption in city driving is high for a 4 cyl, on the other hand highway fuel consumption is really good! I since sold the car as I will not pay premium price for a car that will leave me stranded!


Best Features

Seats, good looks, handling and solid feel.


Worst Features

Annoying auto AC. Would be nice to have memory settings for driver seat. Hope SAAB survives with the new Swedish ownership and improves reliability and service.

2007 Saab 9-3 Aero SportCombi 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Solid car owned a fair share of Saabs, better build then my 2000 Saab 93 SE. However lacks the road feel and fun of an old pre GM models from the 80's and early 90's.


Best Features

Saab exterior design which stands out of the crowd, gearbox which for Saab is a vast improvement from past designs.


Worst Features

Interior materials rather cheap looking, miss side mount front reverse lights and side mounted forward turn off lights in the front light cluster (like early models).

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


Review

Its been a great car through 20K miles. Only complaint I had was when I tried to change the tire and there were caps on the lugs. The special tool was in the glove box. I had to call the dealer to figure this out. Other than that I've really loved this car. Its the only car I've planned to keep beyond two years... or at least until the warranty is up. Too bad Saab could end up being wiped out. Dealership has been superb. I've been really impressed with the service. Car is very comfortable on long trips. I drove 2000+ miles in the span of a week and they were all a pleasure.


Best Features

Styling, Color, 60th anniversary package, wheels, comfort, Bose sound with XM and AUX input, Gas mileage, performance, cargo space. Not many on the road which makes it a little special. The wheels look great on this car. The Bose sound system is heaven at any volume but especially when cranked up.


Worst Features

Floor mats that stay in place, More favorites memory on radio. Less volume difference between XM and standard radio... Have to turn down when switching from XM to Standard radio. Wish the headrest could be moved a little further down and back. It can be removed but that's probably not a good idea.

2007 Saab 9-3 Aero 2dr Convertible (2.8L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Going on nearly 3 years with this car. Totally sweet experience. Comfortable yet sporty ride, nice performance, beautiful inside and out.


Best Features

Top operates easily and reliably with one touch. Decent trunk room when top is down - much better than hardtop convertibles from Volvo, BMW, VW. Cabin is comfortable and low noise when top is up.


Worst Features

Would prefer manual control of lights, as opposed to all-time on.

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


Review

I've had my 9-3 for 2 years now...overall very pleased -- perfect combo of sporty and practical; fairly comfortable for long trips, punchy fun when you want to zip around some backroads...Turbo makes it seem quicker than it probably is, steering is crisp; cuts through winter roads fine with aftermarket Goodyear's on it; cool (albeit quirky) body style. Great mpg (28-30). Pretty reliable -- 2-3 minor repairs under warranty.


Best Features

Turbo is a blast, suspension nicely balanced (comfort vs sport); unique exterior styling; practical room in the trunk & fold down seating; comfortable front seating; stereo w/XM; solid MPG.


Worst Features

Very tight rear leg room, dumb trunk latch design, rear floor mats need some type of secure hook/button.
