2006 SAAB 9-3 Linear 1.9 TiD turbo diesel
The wisest choice of all second-hand saloon cars
EGR valve (fortunately replaced under warranty).
Weird steering (unknown cause).
Random jerking while accelerating/decelerating (unknown cause).
Difficulties to change gears.
I'm amazed by: the low consumption, the excellent comfort of its seat, the handling, the performances, the cargo, the superb design of the car.
I didn't like: the clutch/gearbox set, the aerodynamic sounds, the very bad handling when on windy/bad roads, some weird reactions from the steering wheel (hard/smooth), noises coming from the dashboard.
OK, it might be not as reliable as a BMW/Audi/Merc, but it's far better looking, and you have the feeling of driving something more rare and exclusive.
My previous car was a Saab, my current car is a Saab, my next car will be a Saab.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
