: 2002 9-5 Aero - Houston Area

21st July 2009, 11:00 AM
I'm afraid I need to sell my 2002 9-5 Aero. This was my wife and I's high-speed, economical "going out of town" vehicle. We just bought her an '09 Jetta TDI. (awesome car) So we no longer need two sedans. We go out of town almost every weekend (Austin, Dallas, Louisiana). This was my third Saab (1969 96 DeLuxe was my first car at age 15, and a 2005 9-3 Aero, lease). Lots more in my immediate family.

The Car:
2002 9-5
85,XXX miles
Silver with Black Leather
'05 17" 9-3 Aero twin 5 spoke wheels (looks awesome on this car)
Xenon (new bulbs, 6k)
Heated front and rear seats (Leather in great shape, back seat looks new)
Premium HK sound system
power everything as you know...
XM radio installed
V1 Hardwired near Rear view mirror (not included, but wired)

Runs great, very powerful, Yokohama Tires have about 75% left. Recent Trans fluid changed, wheels balanced, and Alignment.

Owned the car since 66k. Have all warranty records (talked dealer into printing them for me) 10, 20, 30k services were done, no major issues. No records from about 45k-66k. All records from 66k-85k. Carfax is perfectly clean when i bought it. Couple of minor dings, average stuff for 7-8 year old car. No pixels missing from SID. Every now and then, one line will be missing. There might be one bulb missing from ACC lighting. Typical little saab issues that can be inexpensively fixed. Only Mobile 1 used since owned. Zero symptoms of sludge, but never taken head or pan off. AC blows cold (even in Houston's hottest summer on record). Car runs awesome. Very quick. Seems to be SLIGHT oil seepage. Not even drip, just seeps. Seems to be from pan. Not even enough to lower oil level enough to have to add, etc.

Pictures upon request. jhboult@gmail.com. Not in any real hurry or dire need to sell, but its time to get a vehicle that can handle rough roads, beaches, and tow trailers/boats.

Hoping to get around $7,700.
