Default 06 9-5 Sportcombi MT

Looking to start auto crossing, I was planning on being that guy in a wagon but a buddy offered me 4k for my Saab, which could help me into a Miata or RWD coupe but I don't want to give away the car. I'm the second owner, after a older woman so I have been the only one to put the car through its paces.

2006 9-5 2.3L
Manual Transmission
133k (mostly highway)
Maintained by the dealership it was original sold by all its life, with the complete repair records to prove it.

OEM wheels have winter tires on them and Set of Elbrus wheels have summer tires, seen in the picture.

Let me know what you guys think, am I optimistic or crazy for thinking $6,000.

How's the body and interior? Clutch been replaced?

On first look I'd say you're not crazy.

Don't do it for 4 K if the car has a clean interior and a solid drivetrain, especially when is an MT. MT's bring higher prices than AT since they are much more fun to drive.

At least 5400. That will be more like a fair an reasonable price.

Would be worth listing for sale on here and other sites before selling first as well.

There is an 06 with light hail damage on the bay of e right now. Ends in 4 days.
Keep an eye on it and see what it goes for.

Thanks for the advice, The the exterior has some dents and the paint could be touched up but silver color hides a lot of it, the interior is in great shape, I had the clutch replaced at 100k.

If I find a deal on a car for Auto X, I would try to keep the Saab. Always loved the fast station wagon (e63 amg, m5 touring, v70R), with out putting too much money into the car or ruining the original look, what modifications can I look into to give it a sportier stance/look.

Dude, the MT sportwagon in the later years (2004+) are unicorns. They hold their value really well, despite being a SAAB.

Some people are able to sell them for $7K+ with impeccable repair histories and/or low mileages.

$4k is too low...but if you're selling at the price, let me get in line first.

If 2004+ MT wagons are unicorns, what does that make -2003 MT wagon? I have a 2003 MT wagon...

I think you could get more. Also the wagon is way more practical as an every day car than a rwd small car (esp since you live where it snows). If this is a second fun car then I think it'd make sense to sell the saab and grab something more lively. If it's an every day car then the saab is going to be hard to beat.

For a fun, small RWD car I'm a big fan of the porsche 924/944/968 series. Awesome handling cars with great build quality, brakes, etc., as standard. Pretty affordable too.

2004+ cars have the better PCV system from the factory. 2003's are nice, too!

I have the same mileage on my 5mt '06. There is no way in hell I would sell it for $4k. There is not a single '06+ 5spd wagon to be found for sale in the country right now.

I have a waiting list of 2-3 people who would buy my car if I sold it.

If you have to sell, it would be closer to $6k to someone on the forums.

What's wrong with crossing a wagon? I know you won't be as competitive, but what about making it into a challenge to drive better with what you got?

There are a half-dozen 2006 Manual wagons for sale on Craigslist nationwide. Those should give you a pretty good idea of what people are selling them for.

Thanks Uncle, I've been searching for a bit and haven't ever seen more than 1 manual transmission 06-09 9-5 Wagon at a time. If you've got a moment could you please post the ~6 links to craigslist cars?
