Have recently purchased the Aero TTiD and love it! I have owned a Saab before, a Vector Sport 1.8t which was a great car too.
The performance is good, it's quick off the mark and responds instantly thanks to the twin turbo. On the motorway it cruises effortlessly and the engine is very quiet. The comfort of this car is fantastic, the seats support you very well and they're very relaxing to sit in. I recently drove a Jag X-Type 2.2D SE and the seats in that were nowhere near as comfortable.
The standard kit you get with the car represents good value for money, I would recommend if buying one that you splash out a little on 18inch alloys as these really finish the car off. The car is well equipped and I think better value for money than the stingy BMWs and Audis.
Overall, a marvellous car. I think Saabs are very underrated and you can pick up some great deals if you're prepared to shop around and haggle too. It's my second Saab and it won't be my last.
I have a 150 Vector Airflow of April 2005 vintage. This superseded a Mk 4 Golf which was the worst car I've ever owned. The Saab has proved to be far superior. It's very comfy on the motorway and I don't share the views on poor interior quality. No, it's not Audi/BMW quality but then I didn't pay that sort of money. I don't have any rattles. I've had a couple of faults, one the EGR valve and the other a faulty electric window. Both were very efficiently sorted by the dealer in Harrogate who have been excellent throughout (in contrast to VW dealers). It is now approaching 45000 miles and seems to be going strong. The wife now has a 93 convertible which has covered 14000 faultless miles from new. She loves it.
I've owned my Saab 93 for 4 months and I'm very pleased with it. It drives well, goes quickly and is very comfortable. Road noise is almost none existent and the engine does not intrude into the cabin, even when pushed.
The sports suspension provides a good sporty drive and takes most town roads in its stride, although I can hear the suspension coping with uneven town roads.
The 1.8 turbo charged petrol engine is quick and the power delivery from 30mph onwards is brilliantly smooth, especially with the auto box. It's not cheap on fuel though, I get approx 30mpg combined.
Overall, I really like the Saab 93 and would have another one.
I've owned this 2004 car since it was 6 months old and apart from an intermittent hesitancy in the throttle response (fixed by a software update)I've had no problems. Sure there are a few squeaks and rattles from the dash but not enough to get on your nerves. There is also a clunk from the front suspension when the bushes are still cold but this is a common trait. The performance and fuel economy combination are fantastic. It shifts when you need it and over three and half years I average 43 mpg. It's also one of the most comfortable cars I've owned - better than the Audi A4 I had before. The downside? It's probably lost 13K in depreciation but as £5K of that was before I purchased it's not too bad. Saab service is expensive (£650 at 36,000 miles with new rear brake pads) but I'm still running the original front discs and pads at 40,000. Overall a good car with an image I prefer to the German rivals

Just completed 100k miles in my company Mondeo which I've had for just over two years and am still delighted with it. No rattles, no squeaks and never…
Bought car 2009 at 40k miles on clock. Since then I've had to replace both rear electronic brake calipers, to be fair this is probably wear and tear…
