Saab 9-3 FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Saab 9-3 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Quality of SAAB 9-3 convertibles as a used buy?
SAABs have fallen off the radar since the company exited the market, but that doesn't necessarily mean they should be avoided. With their discounted price they could be a good buy. When the brand was taken out of the market guarantees were made that parts would be available for 10 years, so that should ease your mind a little. But even if parts weren't readily available there are enough second hand parts around to keep your car going, and there are specialists who know the brand backwards and know were to find any part that might be needed. The 9-3 is getting on in years so look for rattles and squeaks, particularly in a convertible, which isn't as rigid as a sedan or wagon. It's important also with a convertible to check the operation of the roof to make sure it's working, and working smoothly. They can be expensive to repair if they don't go up and down as they should.Show more
Saab or MG convertible?
It really depends on what you want to do with the car, as they are quite different, the Saab being a four-seater and the MG a two-seater and sportier. If you want a cruiser capable of taking your friends along as well the Saab is probably the better option, if you're not worried about taking others with you on your ride the MG presents an appealing choice. With either one you would need to find a mechanic who knows the brad and their quirks, and be prepared to spend more on keeping them on the road than other brands. If you chose the MG I would recommend join the MG Car Club and enjoy the car on club events.Show more
