Im currently looking at a 1995 9000 aero, 5 speed, 105k on it, the guy is asking 9k for it, which I think is a tad high, if I could get the car for $7500 or $8000 would this be a good deal, Im going to look at it today, any major problems with this year that I should pay special attention to???

Oh yeah, the cars located in the States.. sorry

Welcome to Saabscene TurboRush91

$8000 dollars here probably would buy about the same car (95-96 Aero) of that sort of mileage.

However, I would expect a Full Saab/Specialist Service History for that sort of money.

I'd look through the history to see if any big jobs like the timing chain/gearbox/slave cylinder had been done.

See the following sites for more info:

There is a 9000 survey somewhere on the net, though can't remember where

Just had another thought - check all electrics work (including central locking and alarm immobiliser as all 3 of my 9000's have had alarm/immobiliser problems at some point!)

Also ensure the air con/climate works, as this can be costly if it goes wrong. Ditto Cruise control.

Other common faults are the interior fan, heater matrix (misting). If the computer display is not working - this may just be bulbs.

I'll shut up now! (For a while anyway
)

Hi Turborush, welcome to the board. Looks like Kevin has covered everything and only taken three posts to do it - no wonder his post count is so high

No idea on American prices - hopefully more of our American cousins will join the board and help out.

Welcome TurboRush91,
The price sounds a bit high. Saab dealers will not hold cars with more than 100k miles - they immediately bring them to auction. I would be surprised if they would offer more than $5k for it on a trade. I'd start at $6500 and negotiate from there. There are plenty of Aeros in MA, and I'm sure it's not much different in CT. I would give John Rumrill a call (978-575-0338) as he frequently gets Aeros from the insurance salvage companies and fixes them. A friend of mine bought a '97 CSE, w/only 33k miles, and only paid $8000. That was last fall and the car runs beautiful. IIRC, he also had a silver '97 Aero w/75k miles that he was asking about $9k.
