Looking at what's available in the new/used car market these days and I can not find anything that even comes close to what Saab offered.
I got my 2006 Aero wagon in 2008 with 35Kmiles for $21500.
There is nothing out there used for that price that gets 29-30mph, 260hp, has the most comfortable leather seats, parking sensors, xenons, huge cargo space, great looking alloy wheels, and imho amazing styling... the list goes on.
My dealer also provided absolutely amazing service all free, polite no questions asked.
Love the car, so why am I looking for a new one?
Not a big DIYer and wife wants security of dealer network with good service for carefree repairs, loaners, roadside service etc.

Can anybody recommend anything remotely similar used/CPO in the $20K - 30K range?

I want hatch or a wagon, something low and sporty, no SUV/crossovers.
Subaru seemed like a good replacement, but after test driving, I don't like it, Outback is too big, Impreza hatch feels cheap compared to the Saab.
I looked at the Acura TSX wagon, can't afford it, I don't like the Crosstour. Hate to sound picky, but like the title, I'm spoiled by Saab.
I really wanted a 9-3 combi, but without the dealer support I can't do it.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated. And since the Classifieds are down now, Anybody interested in this 2006 Sport combi?
it's in great shape, all service records, oil changes every 5K, meticulously maintained, comes with thule roof rack, full size matching spare and set of michelin alpin snows on 17" saab klingons.
Northern NJ area.
