The 2003 9~3 is the "old model" - which is probably a good thing since the "old" 9~3 is a mature line which has had any and all of the bugs worked out over the last 10 years. A convertible with all the fixins is a wonderful car. Are you looking at a new one or used ? If you're buying used, there might be a couple of things to check out, but I doubt you'll find any problems on a 2003. Saab does a bumper to bumper for 4/50 (USA) so you'll have plenty of time to have anything fixed. There are a very few things they exclude around 16K miles like wiper blades and belts, but otherwise they are very liberal under warranty and you need to have no worries. The only thing I might mention is that if you've never driven a convertible before, they (all convertibles) do tend to shudder a little over bumps because of the lack of a roof - more so with the top down. It's not an issue, but if you are planning to do auto cross, it might not be the best choice. Drive one on a warm day, put the top down, take it on the highway, give it a boot. I guarantee you'll come back with a grin. Bob
