Crash Test 2003 - 2009 Saab 9-3 (Frontal Offset Test) IIHS
2009 Top Safety Pick 2009 Saab 9-3 (4-door sedan and wagon models): good performance in front, side, and rear tests and standard electronic stability control
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Good
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Good Good Good Good Good Good
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Saab 9-3 was redesigned for the 2003 model year.
The frontal offset crash test ratings also apply to the station wagon version of the 9-3, known as the SportCombi, beginning with its introduction in the 2006 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. The side curtain airbags deployed, as intended by Saab (even for frontal impacts). After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, its head brushed the side airbag and its fabric cover. The dummy continued to rebound into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

my moms saab after I crashed it...
a slideshow of my moms saab in the towing yard... set to the song by
casting crowns "praise you in this storm"
I was driving on a dirt road on the way to see my horses, I really couldn't
tell you how fast I was going. it was getting darker out so I was watching
for deer and out of the corner of my eye I saw what i think was a dog but
im still not sure and I swerved. well Saabs handle alot better than most
cars so the car did what I told it and turned......too much...... I lost
control of it and it hit an uphill driveway and I guess It was airborn for
a few yards and then it hit the ground rolling. so im in the car thinking
"ok i'm going to die" cause it wasn't just once or twice it just kept
going, It finally stopped and I dont really remember much after that but
the firmen had to pry the doors open to get me out. they said If I hadn't
been in the car I was in I would have been alot worse off and maybe dead
because most cars arent made to take that kind of beating. I was amazing at
the sun roof though lol it stayed close to perfect :)
I really miss this car though, and my mom's going to replace it but it's
still sad :(
