9-3 convertible advice
Posted by John in Bismarck [Email] (more from John in Bismarck) on Thu, 18 Jun 2020 17:53:09
I haven’t posted anything on SaabNet since we sold our third of three 9-5’s several years ago, but would appreciate advice on a possible purchase of a 9-3 convertible. There are three for sale relatively close to me: a 2006 Aero, a 2008 Aero, and a 2010. The Aeros are V6 powered, and the 2010 is a 2.0T. All, sadly, are automatics. All have similar mileage (75-85,000), are in good shape, and don’t differ much in asking price. The general rule for buying used cars is buy as new as you can afford, but I was wondering if any of these three years might be preferable. The 06 differs in some ways from the newer ones, and, of course, the V6’s are way different from the four. I am not in a position to do much work on the cars myself, beyond some routine maintenance, and was wondering if any of these would be easier or harder for a general repair shop to work on. The nearest Saab-oriented repair shop, where we bought and serviced our 9-5’s, is a pretty long drive from here.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer a former Saab owner contemplating a return to the marque.
