2011 Saab 9-5 Review

The all-new 2011 Saab 9-5 is the cure for traditional German luxury sedans.

Saab 93 Aero TTiD Long Term, we say goodbye

It has been a mixed bag with the Saab 93 Aero TTiD. Having driven a few Saabs, I knew I’d either hate this or love it from the first moment. To begin with I fell in love with the uniqueness of this Saab. The super comfortable seats and attractive exterior styling make it a desirable package, while the frugal engine ticks the economy and torque boxes...

2007 Saab 9-3 Linear Sport SportCombi Diesel TiD Road Test

If the noise wasn’t obvious enough, the massive sign-writing on either side of the car was sure to give it away. Saab have finally stepped out of their comfort zone and ventured into new technologies, creating vehicles powered by Diesel and 85% Ethanol. Inside, the new Diesel Saab 9-3 range is much the same as a regular 9-3, the difference lies in the drivetrain...

2006 Saab 9-3 SportCombi Linear Road Test

I was meant to go straight out of the Peugeot 307 Touring and straight into an auto 9-3 Saab Aero V6 Sedan. The auto Aero V6 was taken off the press fleet for an un-explained reason (this usually means that one of the journo’s broke it!). So instead, I was put into a 9-3 Linear SportCombi for just over two weeks. I guess you could call it our first ‘long-termer’...

2004 Saab 9-3 Aero 2.0t Review

I bought the car with 200,000km for $2900 on eBay with 9 months rego, an absolute bargain! I am quite impressed with the car. The turbo really kicks in on the expressway when you gun it. Nice power delivery, heaps of options and toys in the cabin to play with and looks good too...

2001 Saab 9-3 Review

Looking at a used executive saloon car under $10,000? Well the obvious choices would be the BMW 3-Series, Audi A4 or the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. While these are all solid choices they've become all to common, they also have a price tag to match their popularity. Well I have a Swedish proposition, the Saab 9-3 Aero...

2004 Saab 9-3 Aero Review

The first time I sat in Saab 9-3 was roughly in 2004 at the age of 8 as my parents was looking for a smaller car to replace our Commodore at the time. Unfortunately they were looking at a used TS Astra while an 8 year old me had his eyes set on high aspirations. As I sat in the 9-3 I remember being overwhelmed by all the buttons, screens and overall the technology...

2008 Saab 9-3 Linear 1.9tid Sportcombi Review

My 2007 Saab 9-3 TID (the system won't let me select the correct year) has been a great car overall, much better than my previous unreliable Citroen and Holden. I bought this car in 2013 with 70,000km to replace my Citroen which had a dead gearbox at 80,000km which Citroen refused to replace or part-pay. Anyway, thats another story...
