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


Review

Great pickup, comfortable seats and nice service plan. I commute about 50 highway miles a day and love the ride. The mileage is definitely better than listed. I moved from an AWD and was worried about winters but it chews up snow with no problem, even moving in close to a foot this past winter. The whole car just has a solid feel to it.


Best Features

Pickup, fuel economy, heated seats that work fast, AC vents. Clean design of gauges etc.


Worst Features

A passenger side cup holder. Don't have the doors lock automatically when engine is on - locked my keys in the car.

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


Review

Love this car and its unique look. Best of all are the leather seats! Every single person that sits in this car says he never felt so comfortable. Long rides are a pleasure in this car. The road feel and handling is great. Highway gas mileage is more than acceptable!


Best Features

Leather seats, ergonomics, unique look.


Worst Features

In-dash Cup Holder, more back seat room, more trunk space.

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


Review

Had the car for almost 2 years. Really been nothing but a pleasure from day one. This is the car I should have bought 10 years ago, though it wasn't available ten years ago. Bose stereo is wonderful. Ride and performance are really nice. Punching the gas every once in a while is a blast. Road noise is not nearly as bad as my former Subaru. Interior design is lovely though there is too much hard, sort-of-cheap-feeling plastic. Rear fold-down seats really create a humongous hatchback-like cargo area. Dealer has been great. The warranty and maintenance are really top notch. Newer models don't have as long of a warranty. Roof rack bars look awesome.


Best Features

Performance, seats/comfort, stereo, cargo space, 60th anniversary package, color (gray), warranty, free maintenance, hwy gas mileage.


Worst Features

Hard to find fault just yet. It's everything I wanted in a car. I'll be keeping it at least until warranty runs out, maybe longer if reliability holds up.

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


Review

Exhilarating and luxurious for the price with good gas mileage. 07' sportcombi wagon 2.0T 6 spd manual (only way to go for me) 17" wheels, Nocturne Blue; all options except heated seats, which would be nice. At 25K miles the car has been trouble free except the seat memory doesn't work; SAAB promises to replace. The mileage stated by Edmunds is severely under-rated; I'm averaging between 30- 35mpg combined on hilly highway/city travel, good for car with 210hp. The roof rack bolts on, making it easy to install/remove. I shopped the Audi A-3 (nice car too) and found it very similar in performance/handling, but the interior and trunk space was much smaller and Audi couldn't touch the price.


Best Features

Performance, and economy. Handles great on mountain roads, has plenty of power (210hp) for passing uphill, even starting at relatively low RPM and 30-35mpg to boot! Interior roomy for car this size, wagon trunk big enough for bicycle or skis with seats folded. Predictable on snow with snow tires.


Worst Features

Bring the 9-3 TTiD to the USA so we can drive a SAAB performance diesel with upwards of 50mpg! Cup holder flimsy; broke after 2 months, remove "running lights" feature so headlamps can be switched off. None other than that. This is my 5th SAAB so I'm hooked on SAAB performance reliability & value.
