What used Saab 9-3 sports will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Saab 9-3 sports?

The 9-3 needs regular servicing every 12,000 miles. The fact that the Saab shares many of its components with the Vauxhall Vectra means that replacement parts don't cost the earth.

What could cost you, though, is a potentially damaging mix of front-wheel drive and turbocharged engines. This is bad news for the front tyres, and you may have to change them on a frequent basis, depending on your driving style.

Some owners also complain of not being to get close to the official fuel economy figures, which are just under 30mpg for all models.
