I believe that this Swedish car is the most enthusiastic car I've ever ride.. nothing is compared with its power, beauty, and stability.. but there is something bad I really want Saab to think about " its suspension "
Re the last commentators suspension concerns, new aftermarket springs in conjunction with standard dampers can work wonders with the handling. Check with a saab owners group for recommendations.
You say the handling on the SS is better than the coupe. But what about the practicality of the luggage capacity with the hatch back for diffivultloads.
Definitely a fun car to test drive. I am on the brink of buying this car, but I'm concerned mainly about the reliability which has not been too great. According to the dealer, they have worked out a lot of the problems for the '04 models so if there is anyone who owns an '04 or later please advise me on the reliability. Thanks.

Saab 9-3 Aero 2.0t SE Convertible 2003 - Extremely well built, reliable and amazing for cold climates, as well as hot climates.
This car has such a smooth auto transmission, and the performance is there if you feel the need for speed and performance.
The cockpit / cabin interior is of top quality, and the front driver seating position provides great comfort for those long distant Europe drives.
Can be a little juicy at times, but that depends on how you drive it, local, motorways, or heavy foot!
The powerhood only takes 20 sec to convert, making it one of the fastest conversions on the road. The hood itself is double layered with the rear screen made of glass.
Takes a little while getting use to its drive; can feel a lot of movement from the cabin hood when in transit at low speeds, but once on a straight motorway, this all goes..
Fantastic car, these cars never die and are just as well built as the German cars, in fact better for the cold climate when it does happen.. I'd definitely buy another.
