I've had my 08 9-3 Aero for just over 6 months. It was my 2nd 9-3, and I was so excited to pick it up. Unfortunately, it has been the biggest disappointment of any vehicle I've ever owned. In the first half year I've had the car, it has spent a combined 2 months in the shop. My problems started with the XM Radio/BOSE audio system, and now they have extended to the Stability Control System. Add the quality issues with the materials and workmanship, and this 9-3 has been a HUGE disappointment. I'm about to wear through my 2nd set of floormats. And I haven't even had the car a full year yet. The 1st service interval surprised me at 6mos (6,700 miles), but my Service Adviser said that was normal for the Turbo V6. Any way you look at it, this car was not worth it. I got the car on a big discount, and I've paid it back tenfold in heartache and frustration. There are so many outstanding cars in this segment that the SAAB is way outclassed. I feel so let down by this car, and when the lease is up, I'm going elsewhere....read morehide

- great seats, stereo, handling, power. mileage not bad - low/mid 20s
- not quite quality fit-finish as my audi
probably too early to tell. only 1k miles. but love the inside and out and engine and ride and everything. great stereo. love xm radio. beats car seats ever. turbo lags slightly, but lots of giddyup. only concern is local saab dealer.

- Safety is STANDARD! Good fuel economy, handles well in any type of weather,
- One of the cupholders is a little weird, the alert for seatbelts is annoying
This car is the perfect mix of luxury meets sports car. I absolutely love my Saab. I had a 2.0T before this and got hit at 50 mph, and the car was totaled but the inside was still intact, it held up very well and kept me safe. There's not a lot of them on the road, so it's nice to be a little different. I will never drive anything other than a Saab again!...read morehide
