Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I leased the 2011 Saab 9-3, and I definitely regret this decision. I was drawn in by surface features - it is an attractive car. The exterior definitely looks nice, and there were just so many options available that I instantly appreciated the car. The interior is comfortable, and looks well-made and well-designed ... at least, it does at first glance.
After signing my lease, I began to see all of the things wrong with the car. First of all, that great looking interior? It was a mess. It was poorly crafted, made of sub-par materials and poorly put together. Pieces didn't line up and there have definitely been issues with that. Next, the car just doesn't have the features other cars do. Electronics features are sadly lacking. There is no place to dock my iPhone to easily play music. Bluetooth doesn't even come by default, and if you do get bluetooth, it's bundled with OnStar telematics. The only plus is that the climate control and stereo system are actually workable - unlike many of the car's Saab predecessors. If you are interested in great technology, however, definitely stay away from the Saab 9-3.
Driving the car isn't great either. Acceleration capabilities are underwhelming at best. The ride quality is quite disappointing as well. The suspension runs amuck over bumpy pavement. The body roll is terrible around corners. The car just doesn't have the power and capabilities you would expect of a car in this class. Overall, the car is quite underwhelming. Your money is better spent elsewhere.
