Loved This Unique Car

My favorite thing about a Saab is that it stands out in a parking lot, but not in a show-offy way, but as a conversation piece. It makes people smile. The body style of this one is my favorite of all the 900s/9-3s. I love the blend of sport and luxury. It drives great, and even if it's a little tricky to find solid service, it's well worth it.

Most reliable car I have ever owned

Bought this car new in 2006. Now nearly 12 years old and with over 162,000 miles it still runs great. Have had to only replace an alternator, a power steering pump, and a seat rip over the 162,000 miles. Everything else is original. The car has more power than a Ford SUV which thought he could cut me off - except the car with its four cylinder turbo (way before its time as now numerous cars use turbos) had more acceleration than the heavy SUV. It handles great and rides fair well while getting great gas mileage - I average 28 mpg in mixed driving. Sure it has a lot of GM parts to it, but it just runs.

Beautiful car inside and out drives like a dream n

This car is great as a family car or a first time driver car. Gets great gas mileage, easy to drive, handles well in snow and rain. Excellent motor lots of trunk room. Sunroof is wonderful a wonderful treat when driving in the fall spring and summer.

Best 9-3 to this day!!!

The interior is immacculate and it serves well for the reach of the driver. Some others I have noticed one must place the hand in a weird or awkward position to use button and not very ergonomically desegned. Not so with SAABs. This car is a SAAB 9-3 Aero and it is the best 9-3 to date. They are coming back as NEVS (National Electric Vehicle Sweden) and yet this 2006 has some incredible drive, horse power, excelent handling and a turbo charged engine that always wants more! I personally own a 2007 and like it better because it meets more of my needs then the 06 but I drove the 06 and understood that it had better acceleration. I will not change it as I love my 07 and since in 06 they did not have the GPS sistem in the cars yet and a few other things that is why I keep my 07 Aero. It drives like a Cadillac and stings like a Ferrarri. If you like 4 door European sports sedans, I highly recommend this SAAB 9-3 Aero. Any year is fine. Look at a few and find your nitch. Thanks for the read! SAAB enthusias... not a SAAB driver. Us owners of SAABs are different then the rest of all other brand names I think! Just a humble opinion from a humble SAAB enthusiast who has had 3 SAABs in his life time.

great car its in great shape

The saab is a sweet ride it drives great an handles great too if yo are looking for a nice used car I would say this for you. They also have more used cars that are sweet. If you are shopping for a used car you really need to check out Hanes tire an auto sales they have top names of cars an they are very clean an up to date on maintenance. great people to deal with honest an truthful the way anyone would want from a dealer.

at car for the money

Excellent car that is comfortable, safe, fast, and reliable. It's a shame GM killed Saab. This is a car that has been very reliable in ice, rain, snow, and summer fun. I have almost 100,000 miles on mine and I have not had to do any major repairs.
