2008 SAAB 9-3 1.9 TiD turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
What a great car
Not faults to report on this car.
Car goes like a train, returns 54 mpg no matter how hard I push it. Never lets me down, and no more expensive to maintain than any other car I have had.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Today I decided to go and have a look at a Saab 9-3 Vector Sport 120 Tid, it was a Black Horse Car Sales ex fleet car.
The pictures and description were quite impressive, for a vehicle a 57 plate with 77190 miles and at £7795.
On reading reviews online concerning quality of the build of the interior, I dismissed criticism of GM's Vectra comparison as harsh... in truth I have to say they are accurate, for the price the car retails at the plastics and fitment are cheap and flimsy.. I was honestly appalled as my 54 plate Golf TDI is much much better made in every way, having covered 78k in 6yrs, and still free of rattles and creaks, and at least the engine is not GM or Fiat based.
The only saving grace for Saab is the new taxation class as at 119gr/k mean it's £0 for 1st year, then £30pa after that, and it does not compete with Mercs VAG and BMW, a lot of £££'s will depreciate very quickly I think.
So I'm keeping my superior VW.
