2008 Saab 9-3 Turbo X 4dr Sedan AWD (2.8L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


I bought this car on day -1 and now 50K miles later I can say I'm glad I did. As a total package this car cannot be beat. Does it go 0-60 with an M3 - no of course not. As a total experience this car rocks - decent off the line performance, great handling, no bling-bling crap, and a decent back seat.

Best Features

The XWD is amazing - youvery hard to lose control of this car.

Worst Features

Typical to Saab - the locks are a bit funky and I would think a locking fuel door is a good thing to have.

What kind of mileage are you seeing with the 2.8L and XWD? Im getting ~32-36 mpg on the hightway with the 2.0T, automatic transmission.
