Because 2003 was the first year of the 9-3 sport sedan they tend to have a lot more problems then the newer 9-3 sport sedans.
The key is called a transponder. It has a key blade inside for emergencys to unlock the drivers door. To get the key blade out, you press the little saab logo on the back of the transponder and pull the key out.
You also want to have 2 transponders learned to the car at all times. If you only have one and that one fails or gets lost, you have to have the CIM (Column integrated module) replaced along with new transponders.
The 9-3 sports sedan has a lot of control units so you need a good saab tech with the right equipment to work on it.
As for the price, it seems a little steep.
