Class and efficiency is what this car is all about. Its smooth 2.0 L 4-cylinder turbo with 210 hp has lots of torque at low rpm for great driveability but it will deliver 32+ mpg on the highway. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly. Most importantly, nothing else feels or drives like a Saab.
The car has a radio with navigation but the navigation doesn't work consistently so I removed that as a feature. Radio works fine otherwise.
NOTE: If you want to save on delivery charges for trips 7 days or less, it's only a $15 (non-surge) Uber/Lyft ride, 15 minutes from the Airport.
Also, if you are new to Lyft, since I'm a driver, you can use my referral code for $15 in free ride credit...
It has a suspension that offers a good compromise between comfort and handling. It is safe and has very comfortable Saab seats. The engine is so smooth, you won't know it only has 4 cylinders until you realize you can go 450 highway miles on a tank.
Classy black paint and a bright tan interior with real red walnut wood inserts make it feel like home. Features include memory driver's seat, moon roof, HID headlights, front and rear fog lights. The front cupholder is almost magical. Rear seats fold down split 60/40 for large cargo in the trunk. It also has a navigation radio with a CD player and auxiliary inputs for you to play your own tunes.
The car is pristine for its age with less than 80,000 miles.

2007 Saab 9-3Auto 4 Cylinder Turbo Saab (Atul's)15546
Great car Great comms Smooth pick up and drop off instructions. Only problem was the sat nav kept cutting out every 15-30mins meaning car had to be parked and sat nav re-set. This did cause fairly major inconvenience especially when it happened on interstate intersections. Atul is aware of these issues.
Atul got us in the car and on our way in no time. When we had time problems returning to the airport at the end of the rental, he was flexible about drop-off, which we greatly appreciated. We loved having the car for the week. Thanks, Atul!
Excellent car, excellent service! I've always wanted to drive a Saab and appreciated having the chance to do so! Atul was great with airport pick up and drop off timing and flexibility. The car was super clean, fun to drive, and has lots of features that definitely add to the cool/luxury factor that I wanted! Would definitely book again if available when I'm back in Minneapolis.
Atul made my first ever Turo experience memorable. He's polite, professional, and kind. He's got a very nice and well maintained car. Leather interior, equipped with free android/apple chargers and an aux connection. He was flexible and accommodated my changing schedule. Nothing negative to say about this experience. Highly recommend him to others!!
Renting from Atul was an enjoyable, convenient experience. He met us at the airport, making it easy to pick the car up and drop it off. Everything about the car was perfect. No problems at all! Will rent from him again the next time we're in town.
Atul made for an amazing rental experience; great communication, accommodating and flexible and clean car exactly as described. Atul went out of his way to make pickup and drop-off seamless for us from MSP. I would 100% rent from Atul again!
You get what you see in this case. Not used to driving in the big city I wanted a car that was safe, handled well and had plenty of power. Atul's Saab performed beautifully and communication with him was excellent. Dave Amundson
The car was very smooth and comfortable with plenty of power and I got about 30mpg. The owner was very friendly, accommodating, and easy to work with. This is the first time I have used this service but my experience will definitely make a regular user
This is a great car and Atul was wonderful and easy to work with. He had to work last minute on the day he was to meet me at the airport when I arrived. He contacted me the night before and told me (in detail, with photos) where in the carpark he had left the car. He was very accessible when I had questions about the car, and flexible as to the exact return time and location. All in all, a great first experience for me with Turo, and I would definitely recommend Atul and any one of fleet of Saabs. If I return to Minneapolis, I hope his car would be available for me again!
Atul was awesome to rent from. He made pickup and drop off super easy. He picked me up from the airport and dropped me off. The car was awesome to drive. Very clean and sharp looking. Thanks Atul. I will be renting from you agian.

Excellent ride, a solid, reliable and clean car! I was pleasantly surprised, it dirves smooth and reminded me so much of my previous S80 Volvo! Ahtul was very accomodating, professional and prompt in response to any of my queries! If you're looking for a safe, clean, reliable car to rent coupled with a personable yet professional service, this opportunity will NOT disappoint! Thank you, Ahtul for an excellent service and positive experience!
Atul couldn't have been more accommodating or professional. He helped me through booking issues and went out of his way to ensure that my trip was a easy and flawless experience. The car couldn't have been smoother or more comfortable. I highly recommend both the car as a rental and the owner as a service provider. A+ professional with an A+ vehicle. Thanks again!!!
Atul was incredibly smooth to coordinate with and made the pick up and drop off very easy for me. The car handles great and has a solid sound system. Very fairly priced and well kept vehicle. I would definitely recommend. Luxury type of car for a very low price. 10/10!
