My 95 Saab 900 S without the turbo now has 80K.....lot less than your 125K....sounds like high mileage. The other guy was wrong....the model changed in 1994. I waited until the second year and read about all the bugs in the 1994 model hoping it was OK now. But I had a lot of problems but basically got them taken care of during the warranty period. Fun to drive.....oh yeah. On my 23 mile drive to work through the mountain valley in western Virginia.....I come to this double big uphill wooded S-curve where everyone else decelerates from 60 to 50....I go through the curve at 75 for the joy of it and fill exhilerated every time....saying by guys. I do this because I know no patrolman could possibly sit waiting and the trees hide me from the east bound lanes. Why don't you look at the prices recommended on NADA or Kelly book websites. The $14 sounds steep. Also I would think black exterior would be very hot.....my silver stays cool to the touch and never looks dirty.
