several Cadillac-Saab dealers who are offering $15K off of MSRP on new Saabs. Would it be reasonable to expect another dealer that say, had a specific 9-3 design/color/packaging I wanted to match the $15K off MSRP offer that some Cadillac-Saab dealers are doing?

I think the only chance of getting that amount would only be on a high-MSRP car ($45K+).. Also, there is a good chance that the $15K off car is a loaner or demo..
The rebate is only $9K

I just bought a new base model 9-3 for $18,500. There is an $11,000 rebate on all 09 Saabs and an additional $1000 for GM loyalty. The sticker price was $33,050 and after the rebates and my GM discount (you can get the discount if you own a non-GM vehicle also, but then you would not get the extra $1000 off) I was able to get the vehicle for the 18,500. I could have bought a 9-5 for about 25,000. I have never owned a Saab nor really cared too but for a semi-luxury car for the price of a lower model chevy, I couldn't pass it up. They are moving FAST. By the time my paperwork was complete, the 6 cars that they had when I first arrived were all sold. These cars were all new (not demos) with less than 30 miles on them.

no it wasn't a demo. I actually test drove one; it was a black 2.0T Comfort the dealer had marked down to $20,xxx and change.
It's probably sold by now... The deals are moving...

I actually just purchased a 9-3 Saab Aero with an MSRP of $44,930 for essentially $15K off. If you have a GM family member and a non-GM product, you can get GMS pricing (through the end of the year) which was $41775. On top of that, there are $12K in cash incentives which brings the car just under $30K before taxes. This is my third and (unfortunately) final Saab. There are still a few of these on the dealer's lots and if I had the money, would have bought 2. I was also considering a loaded Malibu which I could have gotten 0% for 72 months on with pull-ahead but that car is not even close to the kind of car the Saab is. The Malibu would of course have been cheaper but that car is in a completely different class. The XWD is phenomenal. I spent the weekend driving over snow-covered roads in northern Michigan and it drives across the slipperiest surfaces with barely a hiccup. Additionally, the car drives like a dream..........Of course, it will still lose a couple thousand in resale when you drive it off the lot but a comparable car would probably run you at least $40K so now is a great time to buy this car!

Where was that $18,500 dealer? I went to 2 dealers today and they wouldn't move below $21,500K for base 9-3s with a sticker of $31,800 to $32,500. They said their max discount was $10,000.

My local dealer has this exact car... still on the lot.. One of only two 9-3s that they have left..
That's a great deal.. Does the 15 mpg city rating bother you? I was surprised it was that low..

Guys, I am stumbled into a Saab dealer yesterday and could not believed the kind of deals that are available at this point. I noticed a 93 2.0T AWD and very interested. They are asking for $28k for the car and I am wondering what's the bottomline price I can possibly get. Thanks.

The gas mileage is a trade off but it stems from the powerful engine and the amount of work the XWD system does. I've averaged 21-22 mpgs with mixed driving. The gas mileage will be low if you drive aggressively but the fuel economy is reasonable if you don't do that all the time. Because of the XWD it's totally worth it as this is the car I wanted and now I have exactly what I wanted. Only thing I'd change are the wheels but that's cosmetic and an expensive change so I remain happy.

The sales prices are very good on these Saabs now. I picked up a silver 93 Comfort for 22.4K; off the showroom floor.
