In all a superb low mileage 9-3 Sportwagon estate in a very nice condition, petrol Automatic versions of this car are very few and far between, if you are a low mileage user a diesel car is not always the best option, for the low mileage user the disadvantages of a diesel engine can easily out way the advantages, modern diesel engines tend to have higher maintenance costs than the petrol equivalent as the vehicles get older, a modern diesel engine is much more sophisticated that its petrol equivalent, all the technology that makes them run clean, that makes the modern diesel engine so much more powerful than earlier types of diesel and gives the higher level of fuel economy is the technology that becomes expensive to maintain and replace as vehicles fitted with these engine become older. If you are a lower mileage user who likes to keep a vehicle for some time then a petrol powered vehicle will often turn out to be the best option and of course not everyone likes the clatter of a diesel when it starts up in the morning.
Saab's automatic transmission works very well with the 210 bhp turbo charged engine, smooth, refined and very easy to use, for those who prefer a little more input into the vehicle choice of gearing then the Sentronic gearbox mode can be chosen, in this mode up and down changes can be made by using the paddles mounted onto the car steering wheel, the right one for up-shifts and left one for downshifts, if you prefer the Auto transmission selector can be used instead, simply rock it forwards for up-shifts and backwards for downshifts, however if for you like me this all seems a little too much effort, the car can simply be left in its normal fully automatic mode and left to do its own thing.
