$3,300 – Claremont, NH:

“For sale is my 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen, 3-door hatchback in Lightning Blue. I have owned this car since February of 2008 and have put a ton of time and money into it. This is a very rare car, as only 420 were ever imported to the USA, and there are probably less than 200 left on the road today. I bought the car for a little over $10,000 and have spent at least another $12,000 in modifications and maintenance during my ownership.

The engine and transmission are very strong and healthy, and it pulls extremely hard. The oil has always been religiously changed every 3,000 miles with Shell Rotella T6 Synthetic 5w40 oil and a WIX filter, and there was zero sludge when I dropped the oil pan. Spark plugs have been changed every 8-10k miles with NGK BCPR7ES-11’s gapped at 1.0mm. Always filled with 93 octane fuel. Paint was always washed and dried by hand.

– Small bubble of rust beneath the paint on the corner of the hood

– Suspension needs to be overhauled; all four struts are blown, and the control arm bushings are severely worn
– Driver’s seat is pretty bad
– There are a couple spots of peeling clear coat on the hood
– The interior smells a little funky from sitting for so long
– The brakes have some minor surface rust from sitting, but they should clean off after driving it
– Axle boot on passenger side need replacing
– Very slow power steering leak, not sure where it’s coming from
– Front o2 sensor intermittently throws a CEL but will include a good used one; easy fix
