Any pros or Cons from 2006 to 2007?

I got my eye on a 2006 2.8 Aero. However there is a 2007 available that just came it.

IIRC they did an interior upgrade for '07 that made it quieter and supposedly solved the squeek and rattle issues in the '03-'06 models. A lot of the work they did on the Cadillac BLS also went into the '07 9-3's.

I would definitely say 07 > 06.

Dash fascia interior wise if you can find an 06 9-3 with navigation I prefer them. However 07 has that GMified dash fascia which the ac controls are all right but a better standard radio could have been used.

If you can swing an 08. Check out my thread in the for sale section on some of the finds I scoped. 2008 9-3 aero sedan for 26k brand new and a 2008 9-3 aero kombi with 123 miles for 30k. Both were fully loaded 2.8 V6 6spd manual with nav.

I could be wrong but.

In 07 they got rid of the SID, and moved it to under the speedo.

Correct, 07 was when the entire dash face and related components got a major change.

Also in 07 the door handles got painted, and the whole audio system was changed up. Even the electronics.

I would go with an 06. That new dash and moving the SID, I don't like. Painting door handles, I don't like-

I ended up getting a 2007 28L.

Wow what a total difference the 07 is from the 06. It appears to have more power. Also mush better laid out. The stereo sounds way better and the seats are more comfortable.

First Year Saabs always suck more.... new things for the first time = test cars
Aero 2.8 = Hope it's got a warranty - ick to work on, sucks when they break, more GM and worst of all - poorly tempered timing chains...

Get an 07' 6 Speed Manual 4 cyl. - best option - best looking - best fuel economy

Also in 07' it got the nicer GM radio/stereo's and no more stupid Fiber Optics... yay, one less headache.
