Saab 9-3 Saloon 1.9D Vector Sport (150bhp) 4d (2006/56) - Owner Review

Oceans of luggage space in the boot, and feels very roomy inside - even with four adults.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Extremely comfortable, and grips the road very well but is certainly not a car for racing around bends on mountain roads. A motorway and A-road cruiser.

What's it like to park?
Quite easy thanks to the rear parking sensors, but is wide enough to cause problems in some cramped car parks.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Needs the air conditioning regassed and one minor intermittent dashboard rattle fixed (easily identified as the driver's side air vent).

What's most practical about your car?
Oceans of luggage space in the boot, and feels very roomy inside - even with four adults.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Computer and six-disc CD changer are really useful. Also love having all the controls on the steering wheel.
