For me, the choice came down to a Saab 9-3 and an Acura TSX as well. I test drove a blue Saab 9-3 linear and liked it a lot. I thought it was smooth and damn sexy. But I noticed that the sound system was definately lacking and the interior was kind of bland. Also I have pretty big feet, (you know what they say..) and when I would take my foot off of the accelerator it would hit the plastic that was next to it. That bothered me to no end. I have also heard that saabs have a history of breaking down and being a pain to get fixed. I test drove the acura later that week and everything kinda seemed to fall in to place. Just curious Cojoroh... have you had any problems with your 9-3 to date.
