Saab 9-3 2003 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Saab 9-3 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Is the Saab 93 a good car?

    I'm going to offend Australia's dentists here, but I do not consider Saabs to be good cars. Soft to the point of being unpleasantly spongy, they seem maintenance-heavy and prone to breakages, suffer shocking resale, and aren't that attractive.

    If you're looking for a good, budget conservative piece of transport in this size of car, have a look at Honda Accord Euros or Subaru Libertys.

    Begin by gently popping out the air vents in-line with the vent control knobs using a plastic trim removal tool. Slide and twist the vents out to remove them, then use a TX25 Torx bits from the top of the radio unit.

    Lift the radio up and pull it forward, then unplug the wiring.

  • How to hotwire a Saab 93?

    Hollywood has taught us any car can be "hot-wired" in a matter of seconds and driven away into the sunset. Reality tells us a very different tale, however, as in-built electronic immobilisers and steering column locks will prevent you from hot-wiring any modern car.

    The more pressing question I have is, out of all the cars you'd want to hot-wire, why a Saab 9-3?.
