Hi Leonid: I've been looking at the used 2003/4 market too for a 9-3. You should be able to obtain 3.9% for 3yr, 4.9% for 4yr and 5.9% for 5yr if the 9-3 is certified and warrantied by Saab. What options does the car have? It sounds slightly high for that year (regardless of mileage), unless it has a navigation system or every bell & whistle possible. I was looking at a 9-3 manual tran w/ 18,000 miles in Boulder, CO (Saab warranty & certification) for $20k negotiated w/ 17" wheels, 6 disc, sunroof, basically everything except climate control; w/ 4.9% 4yr loan. I walked away partly for other reasons, but I wasn't sure I was getting an amazing deal. Take a look at ebay for a good price comparison (add $1500-2000 for the certified warranty) and you'll be shocked ($16-$18k). I've owned one Saab before '92 9000 turbo, it had its mechanical problems but it also has me hooked. B/c '93 was the first model year of that series, I feel a need to get the warranty, owners have had very positive or very negative opinions of that year. Good luck, Jon
