Subject: Re: Should I buy a 9-3 Convertible

the 9.3 convert is the best saab convertible ever........saab does not offer a service contract but the services are not that expensive...the first service is at 1000 miles and it is free if performed before 1500 miles, the next service isn't until 10000 miles & every 10000 after that (10k,20k etc.) the major services are every 30000 and should cost somewhere between $250 -350 depending on what part of the country you are in. of course you will want to change the oil & filter every 3000 - 5000 miles ($25-30). the car is very quiet with the top up for a convertible & the 185 hp (or 200 hp with the se 5speed) has plenty of power it has a glass rear window with rear defrost (not plastic!!) & the top will go down flawlessly every time...the latch is also very easy to use.... in really think you will love it.......hope this is helpful kwbrewer Llanos <> wrote in message news:7g51g0$jme$ > I have owned two 850 Volvo's in the past, I like the C70 convertible, but it > seems a bit pricey. > > I would like to know if the 9-3 is reliable, it is about 10k less expensive > than the Volvo C70, also I would like to know if they offer a maintenance > contract that I might be able to get them to throw in. > > I know with Volvo that they kind of nickel and dime you to death with all > the checkups. > There is one at 5k mi. than at 10k mi. etc they keep getting more expensive > as time goes on, is this the same with SAAB? > >
