Ok so i found this saab, sounds good untill i read it has been in an accident and the clutch is going to go out soon. so what should i do? i know saabs last forever but how many miles should i expect out of it? the guy says he has all the records still and it has 180,000 so what do you guys think?

I guess bottom line, i want to know how many miles i can expect out of this vehicle and how much a new clutch will set me back, i heard at least 1,000. any feedback would rock thanks.

What's that? about 1500? Seems steep to me, but it all depends on how common they are for you, if there's another for sale around the corner, knock him down $1000 (Rust!?!? bad sign, stupid milage, accident damage etc etc) if there isn't another for 200 miles, then beggars can't be choosers! :cheesy:

I'd wait for a really good specimen and pay the extra money, it really saves you money in the long run.
