#352 of 685 06 saab 93 or 07 saab 93 new
Nov 18, 2007 (8:47 am)
Was just about to buy a 2007 saab 93 manual transmission, no frills. great deal I think.. The car was about 26,700 and with rebates, owner loyalty and GM supplier discount and not charging me dealer fees.. I am getting the car for 23,500 Drive out taxes everything. GA has 7.00 tax.
But on my way home I see a 2006 saab 93, auto, heated seats, upgraded stereo, headlight washer, heated seats with 24k miles.. and I talk them down to 17,791... So I will pay 19,500 drive out... taxes everything.
I'm really leaning toward the used vehicle because it's just nicer. More frills.. Great driving car.. And I save 4k...
What you think????

I think that with less than 2K of the extra 4K you will save, you could buy yourself an extended bumper to bumper warranty, I would go with the 06, but based on the huge rebate and devaluation, i think you could get a bit better on the price of the 06.

Is the used one CPO?, the 07 has a longer warranty. You can get an Aero down in Florida for around 25K, new automatic though.

#356 of 685 $2500 Factory to Dealer Cash
Nov 18, 2007 (9:42 pm)
There is $2500 factory to dealer cash incentive right now on '08's. The dealer told me it doesn't apply to leases, which I find very difficult to believe. I certainly wouldn't buy a Saab new given the way it depreciates, although an '07 can be a good buy since they really want to unload them in a big way. The problem is there are no manual trannies out there. What's the point of a turbo car without a manual?
#357 of 685 2005 Linear or Arc?
Nov 27, 2007 (2:13 pm)
Ok, Iíve decided to buy a Saab and was originally looking at the 2005s, and honestly between the test drives, I almost liked the Linear more than I did the Arc, is there something Iím missing? I know it has less HP and unless you get the premium package (which I would want) a somewhat crappy stereo and no power seats, but it was still a sweet little ride and cheaper. The only downside is that my dealer doesnít have any Linearís on the lot, so after some discussion, he just called to tell me if I can do it by the end of the month, he will get me in a Arc for the price of a Linear, so my question to all of you is, how much is reasonable. After doing some looking around, it looked like I could get a 2005 CPO Linear (38K miles) for around 17K, so is that what I should shoot for in a loaded up Arc or is that just unheard of? Any help is appreciated-Thanks!

It's harder to assess the "value" of a CPO car- the histories of a Linear and an Arc can be two different stories.
However, given that both the Linear and the Arc have the same history, shooting for the same price on the Arc is not uncalled for- you wanted a Linear after all, and had to settle for an Arc.
#359 of 685 Ideas on This Price?
Dec 07, 2007 (12:24 pm)
Received an initial price for an '08 93 Aero with automatic, cold weather package and upgraded leather seats for $37,865. This seems high to me. Dealer has said this is the best price. Thoughts?
#360 of 685 Rebate and incentive question
Dec 10, 2007 (3:14 am)
I was originally going to lease a '08 9-3 combi, but have decided to buy. I have the GM "Pull Ahead" offer of $1000, as I have a GMAC lease that's ending. There's the "Fly Home" $500 national offer, and I see there's a $2500 factory-dealer incentive.
Can I get all three, or is there a limit on this?
I'm going today, please help ASAP.

You should be able to get all three, but it might take some skill to get the entire $2500 manufacturer-dealer cash out of the dealership's hands.
