After years of always having two older vehicles ( and at least one Saab ) I've been searching and searching for a replacement for my 9 5 ever since it's sale about a year ago. As we all know the used car market seems to be affected negatively with the current state of affairs. Prices are way up, and supply is down. Narrow that further by choosing a manual shift, and accident free ( surprised how many are listed with prior damage ) color ( no white or red ! ) and I'm cheap, so price needs to be below 12K...and it's a car desert. Most of the nicer surviving Saabs are on the west coast. Plenty of BRZs but most are 2013's ( valve spring problems stay away ) , Boxsters are rare now , TTs too, Civic SIs and Focus STs ech...don't care for the transformer techy look or hard sharp lines and lights and buttons and chrome all over....3rd gen Miata's suddenly became scare too, even though you would think some would want to unload them before winter. VW GTIs ...maybe but price is way up and supply down again.. Mini countrymans ALL4S, just can't warm up to the clownishness. The search goes on.....
