It would be very nice if youīd also have some facts if you tell something like this!! Itīs true that the NG900/9-3 has no explicit roll over protection for the rear seats, but the front windscreen has an integrated roll over bar and better than the thin frames of a lot of others convertibles (but most of them have a roll over protection for the rear...). The car has more than 65% of the weight in the front area and so itīll lie very sure on the front hood afer a roll over! BTW: itīs also not nice if you are crunched by your deformed metal roof after an roll over and all SAAB convertibles have a very solid metal frame construction if the top is closed.
