Saab Pride – Austro-Romanian Style!

It’s time for yet another entry in the Saab Pride of ownership competition, where we’re learning more about Saab’s owners than what Saab themselves know!!

Today’s entry comes from Radu and it’s our second entry from a Romanian owner!


The car is a 9-3 TiD, a 2006 model, with Hirsch upgrade installed (175 bHp). I bought it new around my birthday in 2005. It was a “coup-de-foudre”!

Unfortunately it is just my first Saab but I have become addicted with the brand ever since…so I am planning to stay with the brand from now on. It is a fantastic car and it helps a lot in my day to day business as I drive a lot around the country and abroad. It gives one the live sensation of safety with every mile and after hundreds of miles you just wonder if it really were hundred of miles or just a drive around the block. Very comfy!

I am from Romania and this summer I spent my holiday in Austria. Here’s a picture with my 9-3 in Vent in Tirol, Oetz Valley.
