As the photographs show a clean one owner car that has been well looked after. There will be signs of use as the car is 8 years old now and has covered over 80, 000 miles but there are no major dents , marks or scuffs. The interior again shows only age related wear and appears not to have been smoked in. The car is also animal odour free. We have had the alloy wheels refurbished to really set her off.
The 9-3 Aero turbo diesel uses the superb 180 bhp version of Saab's DTR twin turbo TTiD power unit. The engine is designed to provide instant throttle response throughout the rev range. Two turbochargers, one small, one large, are used. When the driver presses the throttle, the smaller turbo is able to react faster than the bigger unit, so from idle to 1, 500rpm, it is used. From there, the second turbocharger is brought into play, while from 3, 000rpm on, the larger one works on its own. This gives the car very responsive mid-range acceleration and makes for a very relaxed driving technique. You hardly ever need to change down you just press a little harder on the accelerator and let the engines torque do the work. A very impressive machine to drive . Road tax is only £180 per annum and on average you are around 45-50mpg
