Saab 9-3 Common Problems & Solutions

After the success of the Saab 900, and subsequent growth of the company through the late 90′, our favorite car company came out with a completely new car in 2003, as a continuation of the 9-3 name. Commonly referred to as the Sport Sedan, 9-3ss, or 9440 chassis (as opposed to the outgoing 9400 body style), these cars are coming down pretty sharply in price. Because of that, like the Saab 9-5, it is possible to buy a fantastic car for pennies on the dollar (we picked up a running 9-3ss for our next race car for $500). However, like most cars bottoming out in value, it’s important to keep an eye out for a few common Saab 9-3 problems when shopping for your next Saab.
