Sorry everyone - the car has been sold.


For Sale:  2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen 5 door, Lightning Blue, MD inspected

I bought this car in Feb 2004 at 48k miles and it has been my daily driver ever since.  It has 154k miles on it now and there is no reason why it won't double that if it continues to be cared for.  It has been maintained by myself, and a few local shops (API and Scandanavian Auto) when the job has been too much for me to handle.  Synthetic oil has been used with rare exception (the dealer has used semi-synthetic a few times.)  All recalls and TSBs performed.  The interior is very clean and performs like new.  Turbo works well and it makes good power.  230 HP in a 3100 lb car is pretty peppy.  I have always gotten a solid 27-28MPG.

Asking $5500.  NADA specifies $6350 for Clean Retail.  The car is located in Woodbine, MD.  If you are interested and want to make an appointment to look at it please contact Dave Newbern at 301-467-9603 or
