Default Questions/comments needed - new member

for those of you whom havent had the utmost pleasure of being in my presence, lemme give you a quick update.

basically, im tired of driving my $73 beater and looking for a new car, and ive found it, a 1996 Saab 900 SE Turbo.

ok, so ive found one and ran a carfax. it spent a year in Massachusetts as a fleet vehicle (14,000 miles). second owner had it for nearly 9 years, accumulating 93,000 miles in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania and eventually ending up here in Texas. i presume the owner used it for business travel. in May of 2003, it reports that it was inspected after an accident at 79,000 miles. the third owner had it for nearly 2 years, amassed 16,000 miles where it ultimately failed Texas emissions inspection.

so, with that info, i have questions and concerns.

1) how resistant are 94-98s to rust ?
1a) where are problem areas to look for cancer ?
2) if it has been in an accident, how could i tell ? (other than mismatched paint)
3) if it failed a dyno emissions test, where should i look first to diagnose ?

p.s. - adding a picture of the car, its the only one listed with the ad. also, ill be calling the salesman tomorrow to ask for more pictures and more info than what is listed on the website.
