The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette have published their review of the 2008 Saab 9-3 SportCombi – this time in Aero form. So how did it go?
Well, if you’re picking on the click sound of the turn signal, you know that you’re reaching for negatives – correct?
Don Hammond admits as much, too. He likes the car a lot, and it shows.
In terms of driving feel, it certainly does not feel like other GM cars. It feels European, nimble, light on its feet and thoroughly agile…..driving the Saab 9-3 Aero SportCombi was a turbocharged treat.
The niggles that he had included the cupholder, which he didn’t seem to understand, and he had trouble getting the tailgate up and down, which is a new one. Like many, he also had trouble with the interior materials – which I think is the one serious matter they need to attend to in the coming years.
The good bits were numerous and run as follows:
The Saab styling, which carried both the interior and exterior.
Smoothness in highway driving, with notice paid to the turbocharger
Agile sport suspension
Usefulness of the control settings, incl Night Panel.
It’s a good, considered review, and another one for you prospective 2008 shoppers out there.
