This penultimate-year 9000 with relatively low miles and in better-than-average shape looks like a great value for less than $4000. Most of these you see are either way too rundown or way too precious and expensive (like this one) to consider. But this example is right in the sweet spot, especially if you plan on actually driving it.
Like most that came to the US, it’s got the 4-speed automatic gearbox. While a manual would be nice, the slushbox here is actually a good match for Saab’s signature 2.3 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder, helping to smooth out power delivery of the stout (200 hp) but somewhat laggy engine.
It’s offered on craigslist HERE by a private seller in Seattle for $3900. Tempting!
