Wouldn't you want these questions answered before you made your decision? How much off sticker did you get? And Robert- I checked out a 9-5 too, but I didn't get a chance to test drive it. Like you, I was very impressed, to say the least. I didn't think much of the pictures I had seen, but when I saw it in person I was blown away. My first thought was "this must be the sport model". I looked inside, saw the all the wood trim and nice seats covered in gorgeous leather. Got to be 40 grand I thought. Then I saw the sticker: 32 plus change! I couldn't believe it! I've been seriously considering a 98 Passat, but this Saab has got me thinking. Should I spend this much on a car? Will my wife let me? Is it wise to buy a first year model from Saab (I heard the 94 900 had lots of problems). My guess is that Saab cannot keep the price this low for long. steve -----== Posted via Deja News, The Leader in Internet Discussion ==----- http://www.dejanews.com/ Now offering spam-free web-based newsreading
