2001 Saab 9-3 Viggen

Saab 9-3 Viggen (2001)
for sale

Price: US $7,800.00


Up for sale is my 2001 Saab 9-3 Viggen 5-speed convertible with 92k miles on the odometer. The car has a 2.3L 4 cylinder turbo engine and is front wheel drive. This car came from Colorado, thus it has absolutely zero rust on the body. I have record from day one, every oil change, wiper blade change, tire rotation, virtually everything the car had done to it over the years.
Parts replace withing the last 5k miles:

Parts replaced within the last 10k milesAC compressorABS control unit
Exterior condition:
The out side of the car is in very good shape. There is some clear coat pealing on the front and rear bumpers (seen in pics). The convertible top has a few rub spots (shown in pics). The top works like it should and shows no error messages on the dash. It also has a few rock chips on the hood, normal items for a car 17 years old. There is not a single dent on this car, and there are very few scratches that can be seen without them being pointed out. There is a clear bra applied to the front portion of the hood, fenders and mirrors. Overall the car shows well, and you would be hard pressed to find a better example in the midwest or even in the country.
Mechanical condition:
The engine has had regular synthetic oil changes since new. I have not dropped the oil pan to clean out the oil pickup. Based on the synthetic oil changes, I highly doubt there is any sludge in the pan. Car starts up every time without hesitation and pulls great through the gears. The clutch is in great shape with no slipping or chatters, I believe it to be the original clutch based on the service history. There are no lights on the dash, or any warning messages. The suspension is in good shape with everything working as it should. The tires are new within the last 5k miles, and the wheels look brand new with no bends or cracks.
Interior condition:
The seats are in great shape with just a little wear on the drivers side bolster(seen in pics). The carpet is in great shape with no stains or abnormal wear. The dash, doors, and center console have no cracks or scratches. Every single pixel and light works throughout the interior. All the button and switches work as they should.
If you are looking for a great example of a Viggen, I believe you won't find a better car out there with this kind of low mileage.
I am a huge Swedish car enthusiast, I have owned many Saabs/volvos over the years and this car was something I always wanted. I picked it up because of how clean it was. After owning it I found out that I am not a fan of the convertible, and I already have weekend car. This car just sits in the garage not being used and I feel it should be with someone who can enjoy it.
I have tried to cover everything about the car, and tried to be as honest as possible on the cars condition.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, I will be glad to answer them.
