perhaps this may help, a good page for saab info.. http://quasimotors.gar.net/buying.htm i myself have a 93 saab 9000 cs non turbo first owner..etc. if the previous owner etc. has good maint. records you can tell if it was run hard. a very reasonable price hmm ?? for a turbo year, if the turbo has not been replaced (may be ready to go).. since i have owned my 9000, little things are starting to pop up, but i expect em, 97,000 miles non-turbo!!. if it is a local area ad, ask to test ride and spend a few bucks for a saab mech. to do a once over (check turbo). if you can do saab work yourself, you will save lots $$$$ compared to dealer labor. if that saab has hidden probs it will bring that price to a more realistic price for that particular year model.. have it checked out.. cheers.. in a nut shell i am a pro saab person, luv em.... just take care of em and they run for ever.. drop me a line on how it goes.. mike .. colorado.. 93 saab 9000 cs 81 saab 900 Andreas Georgiades <andreasnopsamnet.com> wrote in message news:37EA4B7D.F54A8014nopsamnet.com... > I have seen in the newspaper classifieds a 1992 Saab 9000 turbo 5 speed > with 80k on it for $6800.
