i have just had this car on a demonstration for two days and its really below my expectations. The engine is no better than the 150 SRI vectra i had but the real poor point is the build quality. This car only had 2k miles on it and it squeaks and rattles like its done 100 k miles!!I certainly wouldnt think that this is the build quality you pay for when paying for a saab.Shame because the car really looks good outside but the inside is really bland.
Bidding fair to be one of the worst cars of the noughties - a sleek saloon with slick advertising, Private Eye, The Guardian etc - a powerful, attractive economic car.
In practice a godawful mix of economy parts from General Motors, built on a Vauxhall platform - and pitched to fleece the unwary who were thinking of Saabs of old. About as reliable as a chav with mad staring eyes, and blessed with dealers who would treat a Nobel Laureate like an idiot. A pig of a car and a sadly degreaded brand, that should be allowed to quietly, but quickly die.
Good build quality, fantastic to drive, economical and spacious for passengers. Decent power and performance from the engine. Nice etxras / equipment. Signature lighting seems to get other road users attention!!
i bought this car at 11 months old with only 8 k on the clock from my local saab dealer.the car is a 1.9 vector sport tid 120.the engine is very impressive and has rapid pace but after a while got bored so had it chipped now the performance is truely breathtaking .getting back to the car no problems only time my hands been in my pocket was for a service at 2 yrs old .my only gripe is that the interior feeels a little on the cheap side but the generous equipment levels make up for it i suppose but on the whole a very stylish and reliable saloon would definately have another .
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
Owned for 1 year, as family runabout Pros good size, general build quality, powershift gearbox, good to drive, low costs Cons handling slighly…
Had this car for 90k from new. A 56 plate. In over 2,000,000 miles driven this one has broken down the most of any car I have had. DO NOT get a 2.0…
