History
Bought off of eBay from a less-than-honest poster. Car was in SF and I had to go retrieve it after paying for it. It was in terrible shape (not at all running as advertised). Filed a claim under the buyer protection and got most of what I spent back. Put that and then some (a lot of and then some) into it to get it running well. No one wants to do this kind of work anymore. And you think you have problems finding parts and service for your Saab. HA!
