2001 SAAB 9-3 SE Convertible 2.0 litre petrol
Fabulous. The best car I've ever had or am likely to have
Head gasket blew shortly after purchase; said to be stretched head bolts.
Wear on convertible top caused when the top is down, which it is most of the time.
This red convertible is one serious looker and long distance cruiser, with plenty of power when required.
With our climate we can use it all year round. The heater is excellent for those few cold days we get, and we generally only use it at weekends if it's dry.
The only negative is the scuttle shake on really bad roads. Better since we swopped the 17 inch wheels with low profile tyres for a set of 16 inch wheels.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
