Our '04 ARC 2.0T Convertible did 192k miles (and still has some time left in it) on Regular Gas with what I'd call normal maintinence.
It was such a good car we bought a '10 9-3....

I have run 87 in our 2.0T since day one and it's fine. But I do notice a difference when I ring the car out on a tank of 93.
Its 3 years old and with 24k but it has had no issues aside from the sunroof button acting up a bit and being fixed by the dealer. Our '04 SS went from 30k to 100k and only needed basic maintenance aside from a blower motor.
Saab will be around, and even if not it's mandated that parts be around for nearly a decade after the car is gone.

Advice on buying 2011 9-3
I'm thinking of buying a Saab 2011 9-3. I've never owned a Saab before and I have a couple of concerns I hope you can help me with.
1. Regular gas is recommended but Edmunds and the dealer say regular okay too. Is this true?
2. How's the reliability on the newer Saabs?
3. Is Saab more expensive to repair than other makes?
4. I'm a bit worried Saab won't be around in the long-term and I tend to hold on to a car for at least 10 years. Any thoughts?
Thanks for the help!
