I've owned a 2003 9-3 convertible for 9 years now and I still look forward each time I take it for a drive. It has been as reliable as any car I've owned, and I do keep up with all maintenance and repairs as they come up. I've never had to repair the top though the fabric is wearing above the rear window. Mechanically it just runs and runs and runs. It now has just under 100,000 miles with no mechanical breakdowns (I've never called AAA for this car). I do most of the mechanical work and find Saabs easy to work on & parts prices reasonable. It's one shortcoming is scuttle shake; common on all convertibles that makes for a rough ride on bumpy roads (I live on a dirt road, so have to take it slowly). If you want a ragtop for well under $10G then I recommend you try out a Saab.
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!).
