Default Easy to sell a Saab?

Im now trying to sell my 2003 9-3 linear with 210 000km on it

She is in really good shape
And looking in my local ads,i was thinking getting about 4000$ cdn for it

I annonced it in kijiji,les pacs etc(all used car online ads)
She is about the cheapest of its kind(all other are a bit more expensive),
And i receive only ONE call from a potentiel buyer.

Im i stuck with it?
What does it worth for resale?
What price did you sale youre 2003-2004 Saab 9-3?
Whats your saab-selling experience?

Never sold one before.

$4gs seems like a decent price. Not sure how the economy is up ur way.

I bought mine from a dealer about a year ago with 70K miles on it for $8,900 as for private party and everything I dunno, you could always look on KBB and check private party value.

KBB as well as Edmunds is usually a good choice.

If buying, $4K is the price;
if selling, 2K is the cost.
Or so it seems.
Give yourself time, even a year, to sell or buy; unless its just a Ford or a Chevy.

A 200k car will be difficult to sell for $4k. My neighbor summed it up noticing my rescue work on several 10 year old Saabs for my children: "~ we sold our Saab because it was too expensive to get fixed. Our after hours mechanic worked on ours on the side but he was 30 minutes away". I believe there is no better car for DIY buyer and many thanks to this forum or I'd have trouble figuring out all the quirks that have impacted market value.
