Absolutely the best car I've ever drived & owned
Everything sits where you want it. Takeover on the third gear is always just as fun, it just finds that extra energy normal cars doesn't have. I've got a 2.3t and for me it's very powerful & I see no need for an Aero.
Met my needs to commute. Fuel line went out a few times and gear/transmission was jacked up. Interior was nice and the big trunk was helpful.
Roomy and comfortable ride, especially for an older car with over 100k miles. Heated seats a plus in 18 degree weather. Some road noise that I would have expected. Overall a good solid car.
Car was as advertised, although my mechanic thinks a couple wheels were slightly bent causing minor vibration at certain speeds. The young salesman messed up when he told me I could pay with a credit card when they only accepted Debit cards! Fairly substantial difference as I lost the air miles I would have acquired!
SAABs are the best cars I've owned! On my 5th now!
My 9-5 Aero is the best riding car I've ever owned, which includes a BMW 325I, SAAB 9-3 Aero, VW Jetta turbo, SAAB 900 Turbo, Saturn, SAAB 9-7x. If you want a lot of car for the money, used SAABs are the way to go. You can't buy that much car for the money anywhere else. All european cars have some gremlins, but if you know how to use a computer & are mechanically inclined, you can find how to repair most things on these cars easily. This 9-5 has the best seats of any car I've ever saat in. They are super sporty and comfortable. The turbo 4-cylinder engine gets great highway gas mileage when you want it, and tons of power when you mash down the pedal. Interior is luxurious and driver oriented, which I prefer.
fun family luxury car
never get tired of driving this car, great handling and an excellent stereo system. Comfortable on long trips and easy to get some speeding tickets.
nice looking older car
This is my 3rd Saab so maybe I'm a Saab junkie. I bought this car because I likr to tool around in a stickshift and this car was in very nice condition for a 2003 and had only 54m miles . All Saabs have electircal issues and this one is no exception, the information display regularly comes up with alerts that propmt a visit to the service center only to find out they were false alarms. Learn to put up with it and turn it off when it pops up. Saab always safe and comfortable ride, this one is my cold/wet weather motorcycle, we need someting like that here in the North west.
SAAB 03 AERO
Have been a Saab owner since 85. My first Aero. It's an amazing vehicle - advanced features for an 03.
The worst car I have ever owned
We bought a saab 9-5 2003 thinking it was going to be a safe reliable car. We were wrong. In a weeks time its had already needed a 300 dollar part replaced. I wanted to sell but the husband said no that it was a good car. Then it started leaking anit freeze. Before long the mass air flow sensor went. Then I was driving it down the highway and it stalled for no reason. To add more scary thing te shifter cable broke and I was stranded in the car with no one to help me as it rolled down the driveway. Then smoke started comming out of the muffler. The Piston rings in the engine went. So we need a new engine in a car we bought three months ago that has 74,000 miles on it. HATE IT!!!
I bought a used saab 95 several years ago. So far, I have had no major problems with my 95. The performance is good and the comfort is excellent. This car is ideal for long rides.
