2003 SAAB 9-3 Vector Sport 2.0 turbo from UK and Ireland
Headlights burning out after a few months.
Worn rear springs and shocks.
All 4 wheel bearings worn.
Front drive shafts replaced.
Dashboard and door trims pealing.
Drivers seat sliding cable snapped.
Boot keeps opening.
Drivers seat collapsing gradually when adjusted to highest setting.
Horrible whining noise from front wheels even though new bearings and shafts replaced.
Possible gearbox problem.
Constant rattles and creaks all over car.
Front suspension creaking.
Clutches worn on aircon pump.
Timing chain noise.
Vibration from engine.
Engine mounts collapsed.
Worst car I have ever owned, car looks great but the build quality is total crap. I have driven cars fit for the scrap yard that drives better than my Saab.
If you want a car with the reliability of a Saab and the build quality of a Saab, why not consider a Trabant.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
