Looking to buy or just a question in general?

If looking to buy, beware of its poor resale value (buy used if u have to) and poor reliability (that's why it comes with a pretty good servicing program). The 9-3 drives pretty well, especially the Troll. Good control, nice acceleration but nothing phenomenal. Comfortable cabin and decent gas mileage. No wow factor, quite an ordinary automobile.

tt was fast, more of a question first. I expected the resale value would be bad, but is the realibilty that bad too? The styling outside is so-so, but I rather like the interior (like a cockpit). Or do you think a IS250 is a better buy at the same price?:dunno:

I'm a Alfa man... the new 159 looks and drives like a beauty. 9-3 a bit dated.

There used to be a saying.....

"If the night is quiet enough, you can actually hear an Alfa rusting." :)

i'd rather buy some new toys and buy a cheaper car
How true, I junked my Alfa for a Honda Jazz and the camera collection seems to have grown to make up the difference in car price.
