2003 Saab 9-3 Arc Vehicle Description

Exceptional condition 2-owner car (GA, CA); ZERO rust. AutoCheck Certified accident free. Loaded Arc model: heated leather seats, Bose Premium Sound, moon roof, heated seats, memory driver seat with adjustable lumbar support, automatic climate control, automatic head lights, snow ski storage sack from rear seat center into trunk, and more. The last 60,000 miles have been almost entirely from a 120-mile round trip freeway commute leaving at 11 am and returning after 8 pm. These are "good miles": straight and high speed. A Los Angeles car with half the miles would likely be in poorer mechanical and suspension condition. Always serviced on time by a Saab specialist (who says they have not seen a 9-3 turbo fail in over 15 years).  All new front suspension. Brake rotors are like-new, remaining life of brake pads is 80% front, 95% rear. Tires are at 60% remaining life. Available at our wholesale cost of $938 is a powertrain warranty good for 25 months/25,000 additional miles; this is less than half what others charge for the same coverage. has 39 reviews from owners of used 1993 9-3s: the average rating is 4.4 on a scale of 5 being the highest. Very few cars have achieved a satisfaction rating that high. A very top-rated high-end used car dealer in the Bay Area for the last year or two has been carrying anywhere from 2-7 used Saabs in his inventory.

The 2003 9-3 was an all-new $450 million design from top to bottom. It rode on a new platform, had new engines and an interior that's considerably more modern than the previous version. Almost entirely eliminated in the GM redesign was the dreaded torque-steer of the previous model; additionally, the rack-and-pinion steering is light (yet not over assisted). Engineers claimed that the new model’s body was twice as stiff as that of its predecessor’s.

This is a car that can wear the title of "driver's car" - like BMWs. GM's wind tunnel saw to it that the shape rustles as few air molecules as possible — the CD is whittled from 0.32 to 0.28; the latest owner reports as much as 33 mpg on those long commutes at highway speed.

Saab, a Swedish company, orgionally started as an aerospace/defense company in 1937 and is famous for its jet fighter airplanes. it started producing automobiles in 1945. Like its Swedish competitor Volvo, Saab has always been noted for safety; standard equipment on 9-3s is: ESP (electronic skid program - the biggest saftey advancement since seat belts), anti-lock brake system (ABS), adaptive driver & front passenger airbags, front & rear side-curtain airbags, driver & front passenger torso side airbags, Saab active head restraint system (SAHR) for front seat.

This is an especially attractive car for someone off to college, for a commuter, or for a first-time driver. We offer this exceptional car for $4,400 - the average retail price of this vintage 9-3s. This is a great deal considering the condition - and the warranty available at dealer cost.

Engine: 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo 16-valve twin-cam, steel-sleeved aluminum block, 210 hp, 221 lb-ft torque (beginning at a low 2,500 rpm)
