SAAB of the week – Jan

If I remember it right, then I think our dear inside saab writer Swade will love this next SOTW

A few weeks ago we got a mail from Jan in Seattle:

Hi folks

Yippie – my car has arrived in Seattle at our new dealership. This is
the first wagon/sportcombi they have received, a Β 9-3X.
Whats the best I can do for you guys at Saabsunited – send more pics, or
tell you that I traded in my MB Β E500 4matic wagon or that we own a
9-5 Aero wagon (2003) andare looking forwards to see the new 9-5 wagon or
that this is our Saab number 14….
Keep up the good work – its great reading and I guess the best I can do
is continue buying new Saabs.
I hope my new 9-3X will be a “promotion” vehicle in Seattle and attract
more buyers.


Now I know who to call if I sometime visits Seattle πŸ˜‰
I wish you all luck and have fun driving your Saab 9-3X!

  1. Someone needs to make a raising kit for it as well as fill it in with some beefier tires. Will remind me of the Audi All Road Quattro except better πŸ™‚

      • Yeah, or on one of those text frames around the licence plate. Or on the front, not all states in the US requie a plate on the front, don’t know if seattle is in one of those.

  2. Looks like mine. πŸ™‚ Same color too. You will be very pleased with it, I assure You.
    Only one small issue thou. But I believe the gas prices are better=lower in the US. πŸ˜‰
    Are the rear light arrangement clear glas (plastic)? Not as in Sweden where its frosted.

  3. I think the 9-3SC and especially the 9-3X are very good looking cars. They are practical, yet a driver’s car and the closest we have to a hot hatch at the moment. Jan, congrats to a great vehicle! I see you even managed to get the original Griffin logo on the rear door… πŸ™‚
    Hopefully you can drive it around crowded areas and attract some interest…

  4. Very OT, but can anyone give me advice where to look for a nice original OG SAAB 900 Aero or Turbo in Sweden? If you look at Blocket (the largest used car site) there is very seldom you see any good 900s anymore.

  5. I thought the E500 was a spectacular car when is was released and probably an awesome car in many aspects. But you did the right thing πŸ™‚ Good choice Jan, I like the 9-3x a lot and it fits perfectly in red.

  6. That is a very nice sporty and fun car. I used to really dislike the 9-3 SC but its gradually coming into its own and that one you have there actually looks quite pretty-good choice Sir!

    As it happens I am on my 13th Saab and will stick with them for as long as they make cars-I drive other stuff but always come back to Saab-they are just understated, and such fun to drive..

  7. I have a 2010 93X in Glacier Silver, it has a Hirsch upgraded engine (240bhp). It’s a great car, not many of them around in the UK, I have only seen three to date and one of them was the one I own!
