Oil's well with Saab 9-3

    Saab 9-3 SportWagon

    Minor tweaks both simplify and improve the 9-3. Likeable, but lagging behind

    Saab 9-3 1.9 TTiD Sport Wagon

This is the first Saab I have ever owned.....and it is brilliant!!! It is both fast and economical. It will provide high performance with great MPG, on average 50+mpg. Slight reliabillity problems with front springs and the exhast EGR valves but I can live with this due to the performance of the car. Great. Had a VW Golf GTi 8V beforevthis and there is NO comparison.
