The car appears not to have been smoked in and is animal odour free. The are no major bumps or scuffs just the usual mileage related stone chips.
As you might expect of a car with full Saab main dealer history it does drive very well. 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 .
