Car description

Hello! This is my sixth Saab that I have owned. I love it. I have upgraded all sorts of things (will list below). Will do my best to list both the good and the bad, but keep in mind this car is almost thirty years old... so it has all the kinds of issues typical of a car of that age. HOWEVER... it is in really good shape considering it has been on the road ever since Rick Astley had a #1 hit with "Never Gonna Give You Up".... that is a long time ago now. I'm a Saab nut, and the previous owner was as well. I hope it finds a good home! The outside is the star, and the interior is still good for Saabs of its age, however the inside is more on the "fair" side by most standards. I have a clean title (not salvage) that shows I purchased it last April 2019 with 84K Miles (I drove it from Tulsa to KC at the time of purchase). I added 4K miles this year. I shot a video of it last weekend, I will embed it below.
THE GOOD:Just over 88,000 original milesStarts and goes, peppy, would feel confident driving anywhere (I drove it from Tulsa and round trip to St. Louis within the past year).Handles highway greatShiny paint, straight bodyCold air, hot heat (recharged AC last year)Bluetooth receiver, small bazooka tube in spare tire compartmentWhile seats are worn, no tears in the leather95% dash trim in-tact, only a couple of small dash cracks - really good compared to similar models of this ageGreat transmission, clutch and shiftingEuro headlightsPower windows workStarts every timeNo leaks!!No engine temperature problemsAirbag replaced 2019New clockspring 2020All new tires 6 months ago (big O tires $530 w/ warranty)New passenger side marker cover 2019New outer CV boots 2019New fan switch 2019New passenger door hinge 2019 (old hinge would get stuck open)New battery 2019*All above repairs were done by a Saab mechanic. Paperwork included with sale.
It needs new headliner/door liner. See photo.Had the saab mechanic install a rebuilt sunroof motor. However, the cable drive is missing two teeth. Does operate, but would need the belt to run 100% smooth. Could use a track adjustment (air sound noticeable, but does not leak).The fan and ac controls are wonky. The AC is nice and cold (just fired it up last weekend, and the AC is still blowing cold after being off for the winter.. so no leak). However, controls do not change the zones, but the fan comes on and off just fine. If you are not too concerned that you cant direct vents (like feet), you will be ok. Otherwise, you will need to replace the distribution valve to make it right (runs about $350 installed).While the sound is pretty good thanks to the bazooka tube in the back, the dash speakers buzz a bit. Not blown, just vibrate at times. I actually can live with it even though I am usually pretty crazy about that. Not terrible, but should be mentioned.Seat heaters / cruse control not operational. Inherited it that way. Could be fuze, could be the system. Haven't looked into it.The previous owner had a shopping cart hit the passenger door and attempted a touch up. See photo. It is clearly noticeable, but then again doesn't really jump out at you unless you are looking right at it.The is some clear coat peel on the trim under the front windshield. See photo.There are a few tiny spots that could use a dot of touch up paint, and a couple of small dings that could use a paintless dent repair (PDR), but nothing major. Body looks really good overall.Tiny windshield chip. Not split, cracked or anything.
Please watch the video and feel free to ask any questions. Like I mentioned this is my sixth Saab (I had a '91 9000, two '92 900s, '87 900, '88 900 and an '07 9-3). This is by far the cleanest and lowest milage Saab I've owned (outside of the 9-3). I will require a $500 deposit within 48 hours. The rest will be required in cash at pick up or cashiers check. If you want to use a cashiers check, that is acceptable (transaction will be completed at my bank in that case). I am willing to work with you if you plan on hiring a transport trucking service to bring the car to you (at your cost), however, do note that your payment of the purchase balance by cashiers check must clear my bank before your carrier picks up the car. If you check my profile you will see that my eBay account turns 20 years old this coming January, so you can feel confident that I am a legitimate user of this platform.
It is garaged and will continue to be until the sale is complete. Thanks!!
