For Sale - Saab 9-3 Aero - 2001 - 5 Door Hatch
This is a very well cared for and sorted 9-3 in silver and being a Saab enthusiast to my mind the best looking car Saab made, it has currently done 93,300 miles, with two previous owners.
Looking for around £1350, but open to reasonable offers.
Being a 17 year old it is in remarkable condition, everything works as it should, which includes the following.
• Heated Front Seats
• Electric Adjustable Front Seats
• Cruise Control
• Automatic Climate Control
• Headlight Wipers (return back to normal position)
• CD Changer in the boot
• There are no cracks in either of light or fog light lenses and the fog lights work too.
There have been no problems with the engine, which has always had regular flushes and oil and filter changes using fully synthetic, the engine runs very quiet with plenty of urge.
The full black buffalo leather has no tears or damage (a little wear to the drivers seat) but I feed the leather regularly, the carpets are very clean also, with overmats.
It has the Abbot Racing rescue kit fitted, which improved handling and bulk head flex which was a fault to some degree with this model, which this kit sorts and the car has recently had new shocks and springs from PFS.
I also had the rear wheel arches painted, but on one side the paint has bubbled and is slowly creeping back (this is a common problem on this model) on the other side I scrapped the edge on my fence post… doh! - See photos
The car has a comprehensive history with all of receipts for work carried out and benefits from the following over the last 3 years (I have owned the car for 6 years, so receipts for all work dating back, plus stamped service history).

Reason for sale
This is a very reluctant sale, I have owned Saabs for the last 20 years and this is the one I have liked the most, (I sold a 9-3 Saloon to buy this car) as I took these pictures I’m still having second thoughts as this car still looks so right to me, so its a big wrench to sell.
But I need a commercial vehicle for my business and cannot justify the cost of running two vehicles. (Can’t convince my partner to drive the 9-3 either instead of her Focus).
As you can see its well cared for, genuine car, that has not had a hard life and these days quite individual and very practical, which is why I always liked Saabs, so it will be sad not to own a Saab as this will probably be my last.
The car can be viewed at my place of work, please only contact me if you are genuinely interested, no test drives given, but happy to take you for a drive.
Please message me with your details and I will get in touch
