Still not worth it at $25k when you can buy a similarly equipped Mazda6 for around the same price before incentives.They need to drop another $10k off that price.
I'm not even sure it'd be worth that, given that you'd be buying a car from a company with a spotty reliability record and a business model that went bust. I'd be interested to see how people who have bought one (or any other relatively new Saab) has maintained it.
$25K would buy the best example on the planet of just about any pre-GM Saab. At least the 9-5 posted has the C-pillar hockey stick in profile; many badge-engineered Saabs of the past 10 years didn't even have that.And now Lancia is headed down the same path...
@Nigel: You know, I see these oddballs once every couple of months. I'll have to stop and ask the owners next time.@Spanner: I feel sorry for Lancia and Saab. They're like used and ex-girlfriends of abusive relationships.
It's a shame it ended when it did. That's a good looking car and I wouldn't mind having one if a service network and parts availability were guaranteed.Saab recently had a bankruptcy auction where they sold many rare new cars. I like the 9-5 SportCombi, only 33 were built. They also sold ex-CEO Victor Muller's personal company car.http://saabworld.net/content/results-saab-bankruptcy-estate-car-auction-sweden-950/http://saabworld.net/content/saab-automobile-ab-bankruptcy-estate-enthusiast-car-auction-942/
