2006 SAAB 9-3 2.0 turbo from North America
Disappointed in reliability and service
When the car hit 80,000 miles, problems started to pop up.
The entire AC unit had to be replaced, the windshield wiper rack had to be replaced, the CD player no longer works properly, the car bangs into gear when backing up and going into drive, it bangs or hesitates occasionally when shifting from second into third gear, and when shifting from third into fourth gear.
I have had it to two Cadillac/Saab dealers for repair, and neither has fixed the problem.
I am a Saab fanatic and love my car. The 2006 9-3 is my third Saab, and I love driving the car. The handling is excellent and it's a fun car to drive. Up to now it has been very reliable. I take excellent care of my Saab's and make sure that it is serviced at the required intervals. However I am finding it difficult to get good servicing when something goes wrong with the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
