Here’s a nice way tos tart the working week, especially if you’re considering the purchase of a not-quite-new Saab 9-3.
German magazine Auto Zeitung has published a report covering cars from different classes. Radulf was kind enough to take a scan, make some highlights and send it in.
Defects Report: Out of more than five million cars examined from the GTÜ, Auto Zeitung identified the most reliable used cars.
Here I send you the “Medium class” with SAAB 9-3: Not so bad at all!
From left to right we see them sorted by age “1 – 3 years” to “9 – 11 years”. One to five years, the 9-3 beats all German premium cars …

This really is quite an impressive result and again raises the same old concerns about US ratings (where Saab doesn’t tend to do so well in reports like JD POwer, etc) – vs – European ratings (where Saab seem to do consistently better).
Thanks again to Radulf for sending it in.
