Saab 9-3 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.

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