Subject: Re: Purchasing car at end of lease from Saab

I have 2000 9-3 SE convertible that is prestine, I'm giving it back next month, this month is my last payment. : ) I'll let everyone knows what happens, from what I hear, the dealer is more than willing to negotiate on price since they want you to keep the car. They hire an inspection company to look at the car, they inspect it at your home or business. Seems odd that the come to inspect it a month before and check mileage, when you still have a month on the lease, a lot of miles can be added in a month.
