Well its not a "certified" 9-5 but i have seen some 2004 certified saab's so im guessing certification is based on weather the dealership wants to certify the car or not.
Yes i am buying the car from a Saab Dealership and i wanted more warranty coverage than the standard. Can i ask the dealership the "certify" the car? Or would i be better off just purchasing an extended warranty?
why would you not buy an extended warranty?

Saab Certified is a better warrenty, but the vehicle must be approved by Saab for the Certified plan, most 04's would be eligable but depends on milage. In the case of an '06 you cannot get it certified as it is still under the original warrenty. At a later time you will be able to purchase an extended warrenty (has to be prior to 50,000 or something like that), I would buy from dealer. I believe the 06's have a 100,000 mile powertrain warrenty too but not 100% sure. I have an 07 Aero wagon,same vehicle,love it.

ANY Saab that is current model year or any of the previous 4 model years can be certified (2003 would be the oldest eligible year)providing the car has less than 60k.miles and passes the Dealer certification checklist.The fact that the car is still under factory warranty is irrelevant.Coverage is for 6 years or 100k. miles from Original warranty in-service date.Coverage is identical to original factory warranty with the exception of Audio equipment.

The '06 powertrain warranty is 50K. The 100K warranty began in '07 along with all other GM products in the USA.

Thanks for clarification on Certified, sure seems like a good way to go.
Do the 06's or 07's also have "free" maintaince for oil changes, wipers, etc.?
Aug 27, 2007 (3:35 pm)
I believe the 06's and 07's include scheduled maintainence for 3/36. This does not include wear items such as wiper blades, etc. but does include oil changes, etc. Check with the dealer or the Saab website to be sure. Right now they appear to be giving lots of cash back or super low financing.

I'm purchasing an '05 9-5 Aero with 33k miles, Touring, Cold Weather, Nav and Certification for $27433 and the dealer 'gave me' lojack free. Is this a good deal?
Thank you in advance,
#2158 of 2237 purchasing 9-5 Aero off lease
Sep 05, 2007 (1:23 pm)
I'm leasing a 9-5 Aero, automatic, ventilated seats, rain-sensing wipers, power everything, excellent shape, silver, tinted windows, new tires (I own winter wheels and tires as well), currently have 32,000 miles. My lease ends Dec 07. Residual value is $16,820.
I like the car (third Saab I've had). My busineess pays the lease pmt.
Is a price of $16,820 a "good deal"? Could I feasibly buy it and try to sell it 3-6 months later for a small profit?

I dont know the depreciation on Saabs but i'd always go for ~2k under what the dealer wants to sell the car for, haggle with the dealership, and im sure u can get it for ~15k

I misled you.
My company/me makes the lease pmt. I/my company can buy at the end of the lease for $16,800
