Best small sedan ever

The SAAB 9.3 is the best small sedan ever. It is exceptionally well built, well designed and well thought out. Gas mileage is great, performace is exceptional for its engine size/weight and handling is top notch for a front drive 4 door sedan. Interior ergonomics are unsurpassed in this type of vehicle, and it has the best heated seats in the world. Car was stone reliable and a joy to drive...until some celphone staring moron turned left into me. Even then, the SAAB shown thru - it held up exceedingly well ; the clown that ran into me was in a toyota and her car was so wadded up that you had to look at the trunk badge to even tell what it was. The SAAB would have fixed were it not for the cost of the airbags and the government's murdering its resale by giving the company to the red chinese. Were it not for the potential problem of parts availability, I would have replaced it with another immediately. As it is, we bought a Mercedes C class - and its not nearly the car the SAAB is.

Insane not to buy a SAAB!!

The SAAB 9 3 is an amazing little sports car! As nice as any Acura or BMW. Great handling, quick and responsive, and the best part, you won't see another sitting across from you at the traffic light. You would have to be insane not to purchase a low mileage SAAB, they are a quarter of the price of any other luxury sedan. Better enjoy now before all the good ones are gone!

I do love my car

Had my car for 3.5 yrs now and I admit I do love the SAAB, first time owner. I keep up on all the maintenance and it's never let me down. drives smooth, and it's got a bit of power.

This car is my best friend.

I am by no means a saab enthusiast being this is the only saab I have ever owned. I loved it. This car has treated me so well and has never given me a single problem until I hit about 109,000 miles and it needed a valve job. Aside from that it has been perfect and handles in all weather conditions.

BEST CAR EVER

I owned hundreds of new model vehicle in my life, but nothing compares with a Saab. From handling and quality of the ride, safety to fuel efficiency.

Love this 2009 Saab 9-3

Had this Saab for 1 year and have loved it. Great performance from the 6-speed with much better gas mileage than I had expected. Near 30mpg for commuting and got 37+ mpg on a trip. Comfortable for short and long distance and thankfully have had no issues at all with the car.
