Car that definitely fits personality

I continue to have the pleasure of owning and driving my 2002 SAAB 9-3 for 18 years. It has transitioned from weekend drive to daily commute, which has been nice. I enjoy everything about it, from its quirkiness to unique yet timeless presence. I have had fairly all standard work done on it, in accordance with the maturity of the car. I receive compliments from you

Best car I’ve ever owned

I’ve owned my 2002 9-3 for 16 years, have had many cars and this is the best, absolutely love it. Reliable, great in snow, 5 speed manual makes it sporty, handles well and engine is bullet-proof. Once got a full sized washer in the trunk. I drive it almost every day and still fun to drive. Take good care of it and you won’t be disappointed, my youngest son was raised in this car and now drives it when he can pry it out of my hands!

Exciting and comfortable European ride.

Great drop-top with performance, styling, and reliability. Too bad this company stopped making autos (but continue to make airplanes). I'd like to have kept mine, but my older self needed something a bit more fitting my age (but, not a wheelchair, mind you!).

So far very reliable

Fast & Fun little car. Have made some minor repairs, since I bought it. But we?ll worth it. Will look for another one just like it some day.

Beach car

It's an excellent riding good-looking comfortable vehicle I'm just not into convertibles. I bought the car originally for my daughter who had already bought a car before I know

Good performance on a budget

2002 saab 9-3 is a fun car to drive, leather interior add comfort and the driving position is alright, though the steering wheel only telescopes so taller drivers may find it a bit tight. the car has a turbo and has a bit more punch than you'd expect from a 4 beater from the early 2000s

Love my Saab

I have a manual transmission Saab q-3 se. Great interior very upscale look to it. Leather seats, heated seats, hatchback, runs great drives like a champ. Gets great gas milage and looks great on the outside as well.

This car... just wow!

I just bought a Viggen, and it's amazing. When I say this thing is the most fun car I've ever driven, that is an epic understatement. This thing is a monster! It puts 260 ft/lbs through its front wheels! Even with TCS, the wheel wants to rip out of my hand. The handling isn't as precise as I'm used to, but the ride is awesome, for a sports model. The convertible top is tight as a drum, and there's no squeaks/rattles. The seats are comfy, and the seat heaters are a perfect temperature. The cons are, the digital display in the dash is fragile. I hate power seats, but that's my personal thing. Everything electric shuts down when the engine's off, so no rolling up the windows, or seat adjustments, just the radio. Lastly, the trunk is tiny. If you want to put the top down, you're left with a space 13" tall. Also, parts prices are insane. Let none of the cons deter you. This car puts the Enzyte smile on my face. Ifyou're looking for aconvertible that's fun, fast, and safe, then this is it. My only regret, I now live in fear a Viggen sspecific part will fail.
