If it needs tires, a set fully mounted and balance is going to be $350 to $600 for quality tires. So, figure that in. I would have a (independent if possible) Saab mechanic look it over before purchase. People who know Saabs can spot things you won't see. In general they are very reliable and the motors run forever with proper oil changes. But, repairs are not cheap in terms of parts or labor (true of every car now) so spend $100 to find out if the car has issues before you buy. It's cheap insurance on $14,000.
