Model Highlights

Saab's 9-3 model line for 2007 is available in sedan, convertible, and SportCombi (wagon) versions, and each of these are available in two engine-oriented trims: 2.0T and Aero. 2.0T sedan and convertible models are powered by a 210-horsepower, 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, while the Aero comes with a 250-horsepower, 2.8L turbocharged V6 engine.

Both engines can be paired with either a six-speed manual or a Sentronic automatic that includes steering wheel-mounted controls; on four-cylinder models the automatic has five speeds, but on Aero models it's a six-speed. All 9-3 models have front-wheel drive.

The 9-3 emphasizes sporty handling and is equipped for those who appreciate enthusiastic driving. The four-link independent suspension is tuned particularly for high-speed and cornering stability yet maintains impressive ride comfort.

The SportCombi wagon offers an alternative to common crossover SUVs, with a large cargo area, easily expandable with fold-forward rear seatbacks (they also fold forward on sedans). On the SportCombi there's also additional storage under the main cargo area in a recessed subfloor compartment. On the outside, the Sport Combi is adorned with stylish LED taillamps.

For 2007, the interior has been redesigned, with a new automatic climate control system, a larger instrument cluster, and revised interior trims; controls and displays have been repositioned to be oriented toward the driver.

Other standard features on 2.0T models include leather seats and trim, automatic climate control, a power driver's seat, power heated mirrors, and a CD sound system with seven speakers. Aero models get more performance and luxury equipment, including a lowered, sport-tuned suspension, 17-inch alloy wheels, four-wheel vented disc brakes, a power moonroof, sport seats, metallic-finish trim, and a 300-watt Infotainment system with six-disc CD changer.

Major options include a navigation system, park-assist system, rain-sensing wipers, heated seats, and heated headlamp washers.

In keeping with Saab's longstanding reputation for safety, the 9-3 model line includes an extensive list. All 9-3s include front side air bags, outboard side-curtain air bags, anti-lock brakes with brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution, and stability and traction control systems.


Model News

The Saab 9-3 family gets a restyled interior for 2007, with a new instrument panel, revised trim, and a sportier theme throughout. GM's OnStar communications and roadside assistance service is now optional, and XM satellite radio is now standard on upscale Aero models (optional on 2.0T). The top Bose sound system, previously only available on the Aero, is now optional on the 2.0T Sport. Also, a six-speed manual transmission replaces the five-speed as standard on the 2.0T model.

Four new exterior colors join the lineup: Electric Blue metallic, Smoke Beige metallic, and Arctic White for the Convertible (along with a new tan top), and Titan Grey metallic for the Sport Sedan and SportCombi models.

The 9-3 is due for a more extensive redesign for 2008.


Value Writeup

Saab's 2007 9-3 lineup includes sporty sedans, wagons, and convertibles with either four-cylinder or V6 turbocharged engines and a wide range of equipment. All 9-3 models carry an emphasis on performance and stand out for their excellent handling stability while keeping a good ride. The wagon model, called SportCombi, with its sport-wagon silhouette and flashy LED taillamps, remains an especially attractive alternative to sport-utility vehicles.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 Saab 9-3 vehicles manufactured May 31, 2002, to February 15, 2011, 2006-2009 Saab 9-5 vehicles manufactured June 7, 2005, to May 28, 2009, and 2008-2009 Saturn Astra vehicles manufactured April 11, 2007, to July 24, 2008. Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator on Saab 9-3 and 9-5 vehicles and will replace the driver's frontal airbag module on Saturn Astra vehicles, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Owners were notified of the recall on March 23, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Saab customer service at 1-800-955-9007 or Saturn customer service at 1-800-553-6000. GM's number for this recall is 28810.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
