*** SOLD!!! SOLD!!! SOLD!!! ** *


I have an extremely rare 2009 Saab 9-3 Aero XWD Sedan equipped with a MANUAL TRANSMISSION up for grabs. The car is finished in Carbon Gray Metallic exterior (color code 310) with a sand beige leather interior (color code L09). It's a stunning combination, especially in person.

This particular example shows just over 51,000 miles! There are absolutely no major issues with this car, inside, outside, or mechanically speaking. There is NO serious rust on this car! (just some surface rust that can be removed if desired - this is a Southern car!) There are NO major blems on this car!

However, with that being said, there are a few small imperfections as you walk around the car but nothing that takes away from the overall presentation. I can get more pictures to look at if needed, just ask.

This vehicle lived in North Carolina most of it's life until it landed just outside of Chicago. It stayed there for a little under 2 years and then I purchased it on Saabnet.com from another diehard Saab fan with ~48,600 miles on the clock in September of 2019.

I have a clean and clear (NO liens of any kind) Colorado title in my hands to offer to the next owner. See pics of the Colorado title above for reference.

This car is fully sorted mechanically with absolutely no need for any work in the immediate future whatsoever, period, end of story. Under my care, the car has had new performance spark plugs and coils installed along with new air filters (cabin and engine air). I planned on tuning the car with Brian's help from Vermont Tuning but I never got around to it (hence the new coils and performance plugs). The oil has been changed recently, specifically 4 to 6 weeks ago. The car was checked over at the same time and given a clean bill of health (feel free to talk to Bear at East of Sweden Motorsports in Boulder as he is familiar with the car). The car was also given a 4-wheel alignment upon arriving home after my 'fly and drive event'. The rear differential was replaced 2 years ago when the 2nd owner took possession. The clutch must have also been replaced under the 1st or 2nd owner's tenure as it feels VERY strong with a lot of life left in it. It engages properly and feels new to me, especially compared to my 2008 9-3 Aero and my 2009 9-3 Aero XWD Wagon.

The wheels and tires are in excellent shape with no curb rash. There's plenty of life left in the amazing Pirelli P7 tires. This car is truly a turn-key example and completely ready to go for the next owner. Everything functions as it should and all options work on the car including the AC, all 4 windows, all lights, seat heaters, cruise control, electric seat position controls, the cup holder, and the gas gauge (this last one always seems to be a problem). The rain sensing wipers also work perfectly and the windshield is in excellent shape with no cracks, pits, or serious blems (I believe it was just replaced only a few years ago). The brakes / rotors are in good shape and all 4 TPMS sensors in the tires are working properly. The screw-on caps / covers for the coolant reservoir and brake fluid reservoir have been replaced along with the short radiator hoses that lead from and to the coolant reservoir. The battery is in great shape and there is no indication from my mechanic that it will need to be replaced any time soon. (all of these items are common problems on this car).

Be aware that there are some exterior signs of use that are normal for a car that's 12 years old. Keep in mind, this is not a showroom-condition car but it is still a very nice example in perfect mechanical shape with NO RUST.

* I have downloaded a fresh copy of the CarFax report which is completely clean showing only three owners with zero accidents or damage (I am the third owner). I will email a copy of the COMPLETE CarFax report if you're serious about the car. See the cover page / summary of the CF report in the photos above for more information *

I have both keys and the factory manual(s) and a few repair invoices from the work that was completed during my ownership (along with a few invoices from the 2nd owner).

Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Serious inquiries from SERIOUS buyers only please. Let's NOT waste each other's time which means = I am open to offers but PLEASE, BE REASONABLE!

Considering the low miles and the mechanical condition of the car, my pricing is in the proper range. This is especially true given that this car was the final run of the Saab 9-3 Aero XWD sedan made in extremely low numbers with a manual transmission, an AWD drivetrain, and the highly sought after 280 HP V6 engine (NOT the 4 cylinder engine in the 2010 and 2011 9-3 Aero XWD models). This car is essentially a Carbon Gray Turbo-X but one year newer. You simply cannot find a rust-free example of this specific vehicle (regardless of exterior color) with low miles that is this well-preserved.
