I really enjoyed the service! Everybody was extremely helpful. I would repurchase a car here any day.
When will something finally go wrong?

So I've had a fully loaded, every single option, 5.3 liter 9-7x for two years now. It is a 2007. I drive it every day as a commuter and once in a while tow my 5000lb boat when my main tow vehicle is not available. Here's the thing about this car. I have 75,000 miles on it now and nothing, I repeat nothing has needed to be fixed or broken or worn or anything. I'm talking weld the hood shut reliable. I still can't believe I haven't spent a penny on it except gas and oil changes. It will finally need tires soon and that's going to be the extent of my ownership costs. Here's the bad parts however. It corners like it is on rails...literally pull up the skid pad tests and you aren't going to find another body on frame suv with this kind of road gripping performance. It is so amazing it will easily out perform the tires and I have high end tires on it. Even the Chevy Trailblazer SS (that copied the SAAB technology as it is a later released GM) is not quite as good. That's great but how often do you need that level of performance. I can tell you not that often and so the down side of that level of cornering ability is a really bumpy ride. You feel the bumps and cracks in the road and that gets a bit old. The nav unit has a nice big screen but so many times it can't locate an address in the data base and that is even with the most updated nav disc and with old addresses. I hate when I have to break down and use the nav.
That's about the extent of the bad that I can come up with after driving 30,000 miles in my 9-7.
Other things that I like are:
Factory xenon headlights with washers:
Torque of the V8 especially when towing a lot of weight
Tan and Black interior with French stitching
Relatively modern dash for what really is an old platform
I surprisingly get a lot of compliments on it as though it is a much more expensive vehicle.
I like that the nav disc has it's own dedicated slot as well so you don't have to choose whether you want to use the nav disc or a cd.
Since this car doesn't have an ipod connection (which can be done for literally $5 if you care to) you can connect the ipod or whatever device you want to up to the rear entertainment system as a sort of boot leg work around and hear the music or watch a movie from the device.
As for mileage, it is a nearly 5000lb vehicle with an 8 cylinder engine. Who would buy this then complain as though somehow they thought that was a winning combination for fuel efficiency?

I have been sesrching for a low-cost second car since May. It is now late November. In the past, I have been sent on test drives by other dealers selling in this price range in cars with no gas, rotten tires, and systems barely hanging on. (I seriously feared for my life in the car with no working windshield wipers!).Cut to the important part: my experience with AutoNation Ford Marietta (GA) was thoroughly professional, honest, and considerate. I took the car to my mechanic, who pronounced it in sound condition, despite high mileage. AutoNation had already made the repairs to make this car safe and affordable. I anticipate only minor maintenance in the near future. I would definitely recommend this dealer to a friend.
I love you Saab with all my heart

This car had not been well maintained and the dealership didn't even know that the car was pulling to the right, as they'd never been in it or drove it. Saabs are really good cars and this one was just not maintained.
its a good car but when things break its expensive. The check engine light comes on for everything. The car runs well and is fast. The features are pretty good for the year. It has most all the feature the newer cars have.
I am so happy I chose to buy my 2015 Lexus ES 350 from Hennessy Lexus of Atlanta. Sales Rep, King Hardy, was awesome!! He gave me exactly the car I was looking for. He was professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the Lexus Brand. It took less than an hour to purchase my car. I want to personally thank the entire staff for providing excellent customer service!!
love the 9-3

I have had this 2006 9-3 for 11 years and has never once failed me. The turbo allows for performance yet i about get 30 MPG.
