Agreed... I test-drove a very nice 2000 9-3 convertible yesterday. I really liked it a lot. I didn't think I would as I was never fond of the looks of the smaller 900's & 9-3's. But the newer convertibles look very nice. The dealer is on top of things too. Before I even got in to drive it, he told me the check engine had popped on after one of his employees left the gas cap loose. He said he'd have to make sure that all codes were cleared before he would sell it. On a humorous side note, this morning during my commute to work, we were at a red light next to a car that someone had just purchased from the same dealer that tried to sell me that terrible 9000 5-speed. In the state of Georgia, you have 30 days to get a license plate, and people drive with "paper" license plates with the date of purchase on there, so you can always spot a newly purchased car. He'd bought it on the 10th of this month and it had no rear bumper! Again, I think it's probably illegal to sell a car that doesn't meet emissions or crash standards. Unbelievable!!! ~jp Fred W wrote: > Time to walk away. There are many, many other used cars out there in > much better condition. > > -- > -Fred W
