Saab car reviews Saab 9-3 reviews

  • NEW PRICE: £20,995 - £35,149
  • USED PRICE: From £1,695

The Saab 9-3 looks smart and wears an up-market badge but it's based on a long-superseded Vauxhall Vectra platform. There are still a few reasons to consider the 9-3, though, and the four-seat convertible is a popular choice.

    The 9-3 lasted a long time under Saab but it's now dead. It's up against very stiff competition from prestige German brands.

    The Saab 9-3 Convertible is a classy car and one that still draws admiring glances, despite the fact it remained relatively unchanged since its launch in 2003.

Used Saab 9-3 reviews

Used 9-3s are relatively cheap to buy, although some are much better equipped than others. Unfortunately, a poor reliability record - particularly for diesel versions - means running costs may be quite high. Although production of Saabs in Sweden has ended, official parts service has been provided by Saab Parts UK Ltd since the beginning of 2012, and the cars are still supported by a network of Saab Authorised Service Centres.
