(14th August 2018) 2008 SAAB 9-3 Diesel Manual Saloon by Billy Barnes
Was a nice looking car when it first came out but looks dated now compared to its rivals. The interior was very plastic but the leather seats are of a decent quality, which sort of made up for this. The boot was more than large enough for golf clubs, which is always important. Was nice to drive on the motorway and reasonably frugal. The down side of these cars is the upkeep with higher miles. Clutches and flywheels wear out around 100k and are expensive to replace (£900-£1100). The turbo will wear out around the same time; as will the wiper motor and the resistor for the heating unit (almost yearly). Moved on to an A4 since and have had none of these issues.

the Saab 95 auto is in my ownership 3yrs now. 1t has covered 150.000miles to date. it is well built comfortable and fast- ver fast high output turbo model. I cannot overemphasise how good these cars really are. more discreet than BMW/Mercedes. they are more reliable and they don't rust.
all in all, i score this car a near perfect 10 of 10. and like my previous Lexus, it has everything including full leather seats. the car will be difficult to replace.- not that i would ever want to.

250hp. hot 95 I love it! very fast comfortable car. smooth automatic box.beats everything in sight leaving most fast cars in its wake.(i am told the 95 hot is as quick off the mark as a porche911.) so if you have one and have the balls give me a shout.
economical dream machine, that I purchased for peanuts having sold my big Lexus, and I'm glad I did.

I have owned this car for 5 years, totally reliable, good strong motor for the age. Very few problems in this time. As we all know Saab are no longer producing this vehicle, but parts are available, a lot of Vauxhall parts have been used to build - though cant see you needing any. Still one of the best looking cars on the road. Found it to be good with fuel consumption too. Did 27.5k miles in those 5 years.

Sadly Saab no longer make cars, but parts and service are still readily available throughout Ireland. I love my Saab. It is a real prestige car, extremely well built and reliable, and more discrete than it's German rivals. If you drive it enthusiastically as it is meant to be driven, then the fuel consumption is a little heavy. As a result I converted mine to LPG, which is half the cost of Petrol. This is the most comfortable car I have ever owned, and the handling is as good as the equivalent Audi, Merc and BMWs which I have driven. These cars are an absolute bargain second-hand (especially the bigger 9-5)and if looked after, will last a lot longer than the equivalent Vauxhalls, Peugeots, etc.

I have a Saab 95 which is a 2003 model, it has a 3.0 ltr turbo diesel engine. I have to say I completely love everything this car has to offer, it has made driving a pleasure. The soft leather seats make the ride comfort extremely good, the 3.0 litre engine provides an awesome amount of power, the acceleration is incredible. The economy is excellent depending of course on how the car is driven averaging 50+ mpg . There is plenty of room for 4 passengers and great boot space in the back for groceries. The age of the car does not affect the performance of the car even now at 140,000 miles. what else can I say but I highly recommend this car
