My new 2010 9-3X

Well my new car came in. The old 02 9-3 SE sold the next day too!

Losing the old one, which I loved, is much tempered by the new one. As much fun as the old car was, this is a better car in every way, except fuel economy and power. XWD takes it's toll on comsumption, I'm getting 23 mpg in mixed driving. The old one delivered 25 to 26 on average.

This one is a 6-speed manual, fully optioned out, minus navigation.







Incentives were rediculous on this car!

what kind of deal did you get? If you dont mind me asking. I hear the incentives on 2010's are crazy! I really like the 9-3x! I'm also really excited to see the 9-4.

$1000 SAAB Customer Loyalty rebate
$3500 Dealer Rebate - transferred to me
$5000 Customer Direct Rebate

I don't care to publicize actual transaction price since I'd just get somebody jump in and tell me I could get a better deal if this, that and the other thing. I don't need to hear that now that I'm fully committed. I believe I got a very good deal with the incentives.

Could have got another $500. if you joined the saab club at the time too. Every customer that buys a car here gets the 500. Costs me 45 and they get 500. They gave you everything out there for incentives.

v-cool.... now you just need to do some HP mods like the old car had & yea AWD does suck quite a bit of power.

Kinda funny how crappy the old 9-3 chassis are compared to the new ones.

Thanks for comments!

This one is Carbon Grey Metallic.

gm - I do have designs on getting Hirsch tune installed which would take it to 240 hp and I think 258 ft-lb from 210/221. This car will of course not see track duty (even though it handles better). If I go back it will be in a 'beater' sports car.

1st gear is short and not as strong as the old car, forcing quicker 1-2 transitions.

Love it. Been looking for. Half tempted to trade my Wrangler in on one so I can have a newer reliable car. Tough finding them 2010's in manual now.

SRP 6-spds are out there. I'm in Indy but I had to find the one I wanted on my own, and tell the dealer. This one came from Crossway SAAB in Vermont. Falcone SAAB had it transferred to their dealership for me, free of charge.

Great looking car. I certainly wouldn't mind owning one of those someday. Congrats!

damn that thing is big compared to the old ones. But looks good and I'm so happy saab is finally evolving to awd.

Wow, that's nice... Kinda makes me want to trade my 9-5 for one... Especially since my wife likes the 9-3s more than the 9-5... LOL

Beautiful car. I'd really like a fully spec'd one in White with a manual. Sadly that's pretty hard to come by.
