Saab 9-3, Convertible, Sedan
Jan 11, 2010 (8:08 am)
Just bought the last new 2009 aero sedan available in Houston for $25.9K! Sticker is $44.9K. I've always liked Saabs but the high MSRP scared me off. I wish it would snow here!
#667 of 685 2009 Saab 9-3 Touring $19,900 6 spd

We just bought a brand new 2009 for 19,900 in the Northeast. We were led to believe that this is about 1,00 below factory invoice on this car. It is black exterior with parchment interior, no other options. Sticker was about 32,000 haggled down to 28,900 then there was the 9,000 GM rebate. We are extremely happy with this deal and were completely willing to give up a car with the moonroof and heated seated for a deal like this.
Good luck to all of you! There are quite a few more base models out there.

#674 of 685 need opinion please - purchasing 2008 aero sedan

I have two 2008 9-3 aero sedans that I am looking at. It may seem like a no brainer, but I just wanted to bounce off you well informed guys.
One has 13k miles and warranty expires 11/2012. Problem is I cannot see it before purchasing as it is 500 miles away. I can get an inspection company, but not sure I want the car carrier hassle, etc.
The other has 30k miles and a year shorter warranty(expires 11/2011), but it has the touring package and is only 2 hours away so I can look at it and drive it before purchasing.
I only drive about $8k/year and only need to get about 2 years out of the vehicle.
What would you guys do. I am a bit anal about exterior and interior condition.
Thanks at ton!

First and foremost, what is the asking price for each car? All things being equal, obviously the lower mileage car would be preferable. From whom would you be purchasing (private seller or dealer)? If its a dealer, what sort of guarantee are they providing upon delivery (i.e. if the car is not as described can you send it back?).
For what it costs to ship the car, you could consider scheduling a trip to pick up the one thats 500 miles away -- about an 8 hour trip? If the car isn't up to snuff, you've only wasted a weekend rather than thousands of dollars. If it is a clean car, you end up with a much lower mileage car with a longer warranty!
Lastly, before embarking on a trip or paying for an inspection, you could hit some of the Saab websites/forums and find someone in the area who is willing to look at the car for you and give impressions (where is the car?).
When I was looking for my car, I didnt limit myself by location. I knew I wanted a 2008 Turbo X sedan with manual trans -- not enough around to just look locally. I live in NJ and ended up negotiating with a dealer in Virginia. When we agreed on a price, I went down (about 5 hours away) with a check in my hand and ended up buying.
Best of luck!
