The Saab 9-3 is a compact luxury car produced with three- or five-door hatchback and two-door convertible bodies. 9-3 shares its platform with the Opel Vectra and with the Cadillac BLS. This is the smallest Saab except for the short-lived model 9-2X, which was built on a Subaru Impreza base. This model was the last Saab to have a H-series engine developed by the company. The first-generation 9-3 is essentially a refurbishment of the last-generation Saab 900. Externally, the changes have been very minor, but improved vehicle handling and significantly improved safety with the now standard side-impact airbags and head protection. Both the Saab 9-5 and Saab 9-3 were the first cars in the world to score the highest score in Euro NCAP tests in a side impact. Later, the Volvo S40 turned out even better. The 9-3 was also produced with a new low-pressure turbo engine, and for the first time Saab received a diesel engine borrowed from Opel Vectra.
The Saab 9-3, along with the Saab 9-5 and the Volvo S70, were the first cars in the world to score the highest score in the Euro NCAP side impact tests.
A special version of the Saab 9-3 Viggen was produced named as the previously produced Saab 37 Viggen fighter. The Viggen developed 230 hp (172 kW) at a turbine pressure of 1.4 bar (Mitsubishi TD04-HL15-5 turbine). New Viggen buyers in the U.S. received two-day driving courses and had the opportunity to dine with Saab U.S. dealers. The program was called the Viggen Flight Academy and later evolved into the SAAB Aero Academy.
The car was voted one of the top ten in 1998 and 1999 (according to Fortune Magazine).

Car description
I decided to buy a Saab because the price and what you get for it is really good. In Lithuania, Saabs are really undervalued. But it is definitely a good machine if it is maintained on time. I myself had a 93 cup. First of all, I liked its appearance and comparatively quite rena on Lithuanian roads. Leather seats, air conditioning, auto pilot. But I bought it cheaply, so it had a drawback. The body was browned, especially on the sides of the rear arch and door. I drove for years without any problems when the nonsense started and you could say the whole car collapsed. First, the traction of the engine disappeared. I was thinking of a turbine, but after driving to Saab specialists, the ex system cleaned it, replaced 2 vacuum valves and the power returned. I paid 200 euros. I drove 4000 km. again the same ... After that, the front shock absorbers started to blame. Their price with the change is about 320 euros. The cabin is really nice to sit on and you won?t get tired during long trips. Just feel cheap because everything sticks or circuses. Want more quality.
I had a 2.2 Tid 85 kw. This power lasted for me personally. Driving in the city is enough. But to throw up before you run you think 5 times or really manage to overtake when driving on 100 km. Because it accelerates slowly. Or engage a lower gear. The engine itself works like a tractor, it feels loud and very vibrating in the cabin. In the city, I took about 10 liters of diesel. On the track 6 l.
Reliability, running costs
Their depreciation is high. Engine 200 e. Shock absorbers rear 100 e. Front 320 e. Excluding stages, lubricants, filters ...
Recommendations to buyers
Check at the service center and watch for crashes as the brown list will start.
