#5 of 13 If You Want One...

You might want to hurry. Production stopped a long time ago.
I think that with the dwindling supply there won't be additional cash. I'd just go down to my local dealer, see what they have left, and start the negotiations at invoice minus all incentives.
As for the car, it is the exact same car as the Subaru Impreza, save for the front end.
Last year during the GM Employee Pricing deals I recall dealers were selling out of the Aero models.
#6 of 13 Did the 9-2X Deal Really Exist?
Oct 03, 2006 (7:31 pm)
I went to the local SAAB dealer with the infamous $5000K deal and they started "laughing." They only made a very limited amount of the cars they told me and very few dealers actually had them. So Edmunds really needs to retract the "Best Deal of the Month!" I have heard of loss leaders but after checking around in some very major cities I heard the same story. It reminded me of the commercial where they tell you the car is only $25K and then you get down there and it is $35K and they never really made but one of the $25K cars for the entire country!

Well, I don't know the details, but it doesn't really surprise me. If it was a customer cash, they would have to hand it to the customer, but if it was a marketing support and there is one left... Perhaps a sucker shows up and half of the dealership will go to Hawaii Kinda game of chicken - who will budge first.
Most likely the cars simply aren't there, as they manufactured something like 2000 of them over the year.

Yesterday I did some research in Southern California:
The discount on the 9-2X is now $6,000... there are three available in Saab of South Bay (Torrance, CA), one at Continental Motors (Oceanside, CA), as well as several at Lund Saab (Phoenix, AZ), including the very base model in black, out the door for $19,450. I was hoping for the discount to go up to $6,000, but now that it has, I don't know whether to buy one or to wait for a $7,000 discount!

Yeah, if it's a dealer incentive they don't necessarily have to give it to you, or even let you know about it. Some use the money for advertising, for instance.

did you actually contact those dealers?
i thought maybe you found them with an online locator, but I have been unable to locate the locator. Is there one?

I contacted four dealerships by phone. Three of them had 9-2Xs in stock.
#12 of 13 The Whereabouts of the Remaining 9-2Xs
Oct 15, 2006 (6:42 pm)
My bets are that the last of the 9-2Xs are at larger Saab dealerships like The Saab Exchange, Nxcess Saab,Jim Ellis Saab, or Lund Saab.(which someone says has 3) (I don't know if those are large Saab dealers, but I've heard of all of them, and the fact that they are no where near my house means that they must at least have a somewhat large internet presence)
My local Saab-Jaguar-Porsche-Audi dealer is completely out of the 9-2X. I don't even know if they ever carried the car. They have a handful of Saabs, and that's about it. They mostly carry Audis.
Does anybody know how resale is holding up on these things? With all the rebates, it might be better to go Certified-Pre-Owned in a few years...

I found a 9-2x aero at the local dealer. It seems like you get a better warranty on a CPO rather new, there should be some costs associated with that. Now the car is true one year old.
