2006 Saab 9-3 Aero
Hello and thank you for looking at my auction. My name is Joe and I sell vehicles differently than most dealers. Buying your next car or truck through one of my NO RESERVE auctions is the best way to take the games out of your next automotive purchase. I personally road test each vehicle before it is offered for sale so I can give you my first hand opinion of how it runs and drives. Please keep in mind that... I am not a mechanic. Each vehicle is represented accurately and honestly to the best of my knowledge and ability. Please take the time to check out each of the 70+ photos and read this entire written description, as well as our Terms & Conditions, carefully BEFORE asking questions or placing a bid as most answers can be found in at least one of those places. An administrative fee of $149 will be added to the final bid of each auction. Up for a NO RESERVE auction is a very rare 2006 Saab 9-3 Aero with the even more rare and desirable six speed manual transmission. I would rate the exterior of this Saab 9-3 to be in AVERAGE CONDITION for its age and mileage. As you can see, this is a good looking sedan. It is finished in dark red over parchment leather sport interior, which is a good color combination. The red finish shows a few faded spots from the sun but shines nicely, overall and looks as smooth as glass. As with any older vehicle, please expect a few flaws and imperfections commensurate with age and mileage. The body lines are nice and straight. The hood, doors, and trunk all open and close easily. All of the trim and moldings are present and show well. All of the glass and lenses are intact. The factory alloy wheels show well and are wrapped in nice rubber with good tread all around. Please take your time and check out each of the photos carefully to see how clean this rare Saab came in. I would rate the interior of this Saab 9-3 Aero to be in ABOVE AVERAGE CONDITION for its age and mileage. The door cards are clean and tight. The dash and headliner are clean. The carpets are thick and full looking throughout the interior. The deeply bolstered sport seats are clean, comfortable, and show minimal wear. The power windows, locks, seats, mirrors, and sunroof all work properly. The climate control system is fully automatic and appears to be working properly. The heater works well and the air conditioner blows ICE COLD AIR, too. The audio system is original and sounds good through the factory speakers. There are steering wheel audio controls, too. Passenger room is plenty in both the front and rear. The cargo area is spacious and clean. Again, please take your time and check out each of the photos carefully to see how clean this rare Saab came in. She comes with a full set of owner's books as well as two master keys. Mechanically, this 9-3 Aero appears to be in good running and driving condition. The turbocharged 2.8L V6 starts easily and runs smoothly. I didn't notice any leaks and the engine does not smoke. Her road manners are good for an older vehicle. The suspension feels tight and well sorted. Steering and braking feel good, too. There is a little noise (sounds like it's coming from the RF spring perch) but everything feels rock solid. The engine keeps perfect temperature and feels strong...really strong. The turbo spools up quickly and adds smooth power. The clutch engages smoothly and does not slip or chatter. Gear changes through the rare six speed manual transmission are clean and precise, as they should be. Out on the highway, she drives nice and straight with absolutely no complaints. These are great, great cars. I had an 07 9-3 Aero that I kept as my daily driver for 3 years and I adored that car. I finally sold it with nearly 200k miles and the new owner drove it all the way to AZ and is still enjoying it. I would have killed to have mine be a stick like this one. If you've been looking for one of these, you know how hard it is to find a six speed sedan that hasn't been all used up. She is a fresh NEW CAR TRADE and has a current PA safety and emissions inspection good through the end of October, 2019. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding.
