You can find independent shop specialized in Saab/Volvo repairs (much cheaper than what the dealers charge).
I bought my first Saab new in 2001 but I kept buying CPO Saab after that. My CPO Saabs were more reliable than my "new" Saab (esp the 9-5 Aero). You can save a lot by buying a used Saab but you really need a warranty (its CPO is a $0 deductible one, not like Audi or BMW).
#629 of 685 anyone had any luck buying their car at the end of a lease

My 06 93 sportcombi lease is up next month and GMAC want 18K for it (with 39K miles on the clock). I've seen 07's cheaper than this and with less mileage so has anyone had any success in getting GMAC to lower their end-of-lease price and if so, how did you do it?
#630 of 685 Best Price on 2006-07 9-3 with 30k miles?
Sep 15, 2009 (7:48 am)
I'm looking for a used 2006 9-3 with around 30k miles. I see these listed for around $16k. What is the best deal I can expect to get?
I'm thinking of offering $13,500 OTD. Is that doable?
I like the 2007 with updated interior but may be out of my price range. Any other reasons to go up to 2007 from an '05-'06?

There is supposed to be extra sound proofing as well but I couldn't really notice the difference.

I gave 500 deposit for 2007 saab 9-3 final otd cost $15,500 in Austin TX. Black with tan leather interior. $14,400 base price 190 total fees 6.25% tax. 34,450 miles 6 speed manual transmission one owned per carfax. Standard equipment with sunroof. Original purchase date april 2007. I called local saab dealer and they told me I do not have to do anything to transfer warranty. My understanding is the car has a balance of up to 4 years or 50k miles bumper to bumper and 100000 miles or 5 years powertrain warranty. Can anyone be so nice and confirm my warranty?

That's correct. How many miles are on it?
Sep 25, 2009 (4:52 am)
After bringing the car home from Austin it has 34,800 miles. I like it; it gobbles highwy miles with ease. At 65MPH rpm is barely over 2000. I did not measure exact gas mileage but it had to be 30 or better with average spped close to 80MPH. My wife noticed it remided her of volkswagen she drove long time ago. Now let's hope it will hold up mechanically.
#635 of 685 Just bought a 07 saab 2.0t with CPO
Sep 29, 2009 (8:03 pm)
Just bought a CPO 07 saab 2.0t from Connecticut dealer. The car has premium package with 32K miles. Settled with 17.5K+dealer fee and tax. It hard to negotiate the price with them, really hard. I had thought the price can drop to 16K, but seems no way. Maybe I am not good at fighting with dealers.
#636 of 685 2006 Aero Sportcombi
Oct 12, 2009 (7:50 pm)
With 27800 miles for $18918 ($17000+1666 sales tax+$252 licensing fees. Got to love King County and Washington State). Car has all options except for the navigation system. Dealer also had to fix minor body damage to rear wheel well and a ding on passenger door. Brake pads were replaced by dealer in June. Factory warranty good until December of 2010. Love the car, my first Saab. Always feel screwed after leaving a dealership, but think I did ok on this one. Car had been on the lot since June, so they wanted it to go I think. Talked to the former owner (local trade) and seemed like a decent person, just needed a bigger car for the family and traded Saab in for a Honda van from the dealer I purchased from (Cadillac of Bellevue).
