The first thing I would probably worry about is pulling that automatic out and having somebody put a 5-speed in it. The price is cheap enough you should be able to get a five-speed put in there and have a really good reliable car. Second thing I would worry about is rust leaking through the top in the trunk. Obviously have somebody look underneath it and make sure there's no rust I'm not sure where the car is located or where it's lived. Other than that everything else is relatively easy to fix as long as the car has been taken care of. I'm sure you know there is all the information you need to know right here on saabnet. Looks like a great car. And the only reason I say that about the automatic is there's no way to get it rebuilt if there's something wrong with it. And with that many miles unless it's been rebuilt in The last 5 years and not driven very much and has no issues while you're driving it that would be the first thing I would do. About 10 years ago I brought home my first automatic I was excited to have a convertible that had an automatic in it so I didn't have to shift. It ended very bad. Automatic transmission didn't last a thousand miles the gentleman tried his best it's just really old technology and there's not a lot of people out there that know how to work on them I ended up having all the stuff I needed and turned it into a five-speed car I knew that's what I should have done in the first place. If everything seems okay with it you should be okay for a while. But definitely let it warm up a little bit make sure the transmission shifts smooth through all the gears and reverse. If there is the slightest hint of an issue with the transmission try and buy it at a lower price. Best of luck.
