2000 SAAB 9-3 Base 2.0 turbo
SAAB was a good company before GM. Buy a pre-1998 SAAB.
CEL for neutral safety switch.
A/C blew hot.
CAR WOULD NOT START due to the transponder in the key; about a $150 fix.
This was the last straw. I owned the car for a month and it sucked.
Seemed like a good buy.
All leather, luxury, turbo.
Sweet car when it works!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Golly! What did you expect from a 13 year old car?
To LAST and KEEP GOING, just like JAPANESE CARS DO? Ah, that was EUROPEAN... Sorry, silly me. Why indeed would you expect a European piece of junk to last? I had a brand new Mercedes (company car, I am not stupid enough to buy one) fail on me almost every week. Why would you expect a 13 year old one to last, indeed?
By the way, the transponder chip is not subject to any wear and tear, so should last indefinitely. Anyone heard of Toyota failing to start due to a responder chip???
