2004 SAAB 9-3 Linear 2.0 turbo from North America
Fun, safe, easy to get along with
Things that have gone wrong are very few.
Sunroof switch went out. I replaced it myself; cost about $35.
The wiper motor did not stop working, but did lose intermittent and washer. Had to replace the motor to fix it. Cost about $250.
The last thing was the most expensive; last winter the CIM module went out. I ended up finding the part myself, 1/3 of the cost the dealer wanted. Dealer wanted $1200, and I found it online for $350. Had the dealer install it.
This has been a great car. Good gas mileage, and it has been very good car for me. It handles the road very well. It has the getup and go I want. Still looks great with over 140k. It sucks that GM closed down Saab.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
