Another 50,000 to 100,000 and that's it, then your looking at a ring job or drop in another motor that's cost more than the entire car. Personally I'd buy that 9-3 aero wagon if I was in this predicament. They already have 2500 off the 10,000 price tag with a 7year financing, shoot they would be paying 120$ a month to drive next to New. Clean inside and out and next ring job is 250,000 miles away. Just purchased a car (9000) with 200,000 miles on it, bought it from a Saab indie his wife's car and oh my gosh the issues it has. Only thing it can do is burn outs other than that needs both outter c.v. Power steering boots, high pressure power steering hose, fuel pump, front shocks, a.c needed a new compressor, the list goes on. But the purchase of this car wasn't intended as my daily driver.

I can only guess what's in store for this guy if they purchase that 200,000 mile 9-5 aero wagon. Lots and lots of repairs in store or get the 9-3 or a 9-5 with 20 to 50,000 miles and the repair issue is a thing if the past, any problem the car has they will fix it for free got to love warranty. But then most people buy a 2,500$ car because their credit is shot or would rather be at the beach than to make a buck so in this case everything I said is point less. Why am I even posting? Is what I ask myself
