There are now very few Saabs available where I can tell a prospective purchaser the car is a one private owner vehicle with a mileage of only 27,000 miles, I doubt if I will find any more like this! I purchased the car directly from its previous owner who has kept the vehicle in an excellent condition, it was basically he and his wife’s weekend and sunny day transport as they ran a number of other cars. This cars specification includes the extra cost metallic paint at £536, the vehicle is also equipped with the very useful Saab Bluetooth Integration System, this option allows the hands free use of mobile phones through the cars built in Bluetooth reception and depending on the model of phone allows for “hands free” functions using the steering wheel mounted controls, Voice Activated Dialling and the access of the phones data base and directory that then display on the cars information system immediately in front of the driver, a very useful addition to both the convenience and safety of this vehicle, it is worth noting that all modern 9-3 models are equipped with a steering wheel that shows the phone control function, however only relatively few actually have that function!
In all a very attractive low mileage car, in my opinion the Saab 9-3 is still the best value for money full 4 seat convertible available as a used car, comfort, ease of use, practicality and depending on the model and engine combination you chose, a car that will suit all driving styles, tastes and required levels of performance. The 9-3 convertible is by far the most practical of the "Rag Tops" a very comfortable and spacious four seater that easily has more useable space than its competitors, driving a convertible always involves a degree of compromise between what is functional and what is fun, however the 9-3 keeps these compromises to the minimum. The hood mechanism is both very quick and easy to use, requiring the touch of just one switch to both lower and raise it, the hood is locked in place automatically and has no clumsy mechanical latches to manually fasten, the multi layered hood cover provides excellent insulation that in my opinion keeps the car warmer in winter than the saloon model, in fact when driving one of these with the hood up it is very easy to forget that you are actually driving a convertible!

My business is centred on my home in Oldbury on Severn near Thornbury in rural South Gloucestershire some fifteen miles north of Bristol and twenty miles south of Gloucester, a pleasant and quiet location with the benefit of very good motorway access to all parts of the country.
Mark Arnold consists of myself and my wife Lorraine, we have been heavily involved in the Saab product for well over twenty years, and for the last 15 years our business has been virtually 100 percent Saab, that said if you have a non-Saab part exchange then that is not normally a problem, we can always talk about a deal. You will find doing business with me very informal and relaxed, no pressure just nice cars well-presented and marketed by a dealer with a great deal of experience of the Saab brand and very knowledgeable about the stock he has to offer! Every Saab is appraised, test driven, purchased and then sold by myself, consequently I am fully involved in every part of the process. Each car is carefully prepared for sale, thoroughly checked over and where appropriate fully serviced by highly qualified and experienced Saab technicians, there is a strong emphasis on ensuring that each vehicle will give its next owner a pleasant long term Saab experience.
