December 2007, 2008 model (New Look) Saab 9-3 Aero 2.0T Convertible 6 Speed manual with Saab Satellite Navigation. £4,300
First registered on the 19th December 2007 with the 57 age identifier, this is a 2008 model (new look) two owner 138,000 mile car with a very good service history car and lots of extra cost specification, finished in Black with the dark Grey Leather interior .
Specification includes the Saab 2.0T Aero 1998 cc 210 bhp turbo engine, ABS, six speed manual gearbox 17 inch Saab ALU50 Alloy Wheels, colour coded rear Aero air-foil, Climate Control with air-conditioning, Cruise Control, colour coded Toneau and door trims, Electronic Stability Program, heated front seats, Saab Touch Screen Satellite Navigation and Audio system, Radio, CD player and auxiliary IPod or MP3 player input and a “Parrot” Bluetooth Connectivity System, electrically adjustable door mirrors with powered fold, drivers and front seat passengers front and side Airbags, Electric Hood, the Saab "Roll Over Protection" system, the Saab remote control central locking, immobiliser and alarm system.
A very attractive but higher mileage 9-3 Aero convertible with some extra factory fit options, in all around £2,800 worth! These include the Saab touch screen Satellite Navigation and Audio, the powered fold in mirrors and rain sensing wipers, and Rear Park Assist. I took this very well maintained Saab in part exchange for a similar but very low mileage example of the same car, its lady driver was a moderately high mileage user who used the car in connection with her work. However the family are confirmed Saab owners and her partner a true Saab aficionado, consequently this vehicle has been very well maintained, on the completion of our deal he handed me a bound and fully indexed folder containing details of the vehicles servicing and the original invoicing for all this cars maintenance and repairs since his wife’s purchase of the car in March 2010.
The 9-3 Convertible is by far the most practical of the "Rag Tops" a very comfortable four seater that easily has more usable space than its competitors. Driving a convertible always involves a degree of compromise between what is functional and what is fun, however the 9-3 keeps these compromises to the minimum. The 210 bhp Aero strikes a good balance between performance and comfort, the hood mechanism is both very quick and easy to use, requiring the touch of just one switch to both lower and raise it, the hood is locked in place automatically and has no clumsy mechanical latches to manually fasten.
I do not normally offer cars with this sort of mileage for sale, however very few high mileage cars that I take in part exchange have had this cars level of meticulous maintenance, it is in very nice order for its age and mileage, there are as you would expect some stone chips on the bonnet and around the car, but being a Saab there is no evidence of any corrosion, in all a very nice car for its age and mileage at a very good price for such a sought after Saab as the 2008 model “new look” 9-3 2.0T Aero petrol Convertible 6 speed manual.
A very good and meticulously recorded service history to numerous for me to detail here, with the cars last service being performed on December the 18th 2016 at 135,201 miles, whoever a thorough inspection will be performed by my preferred local independent Saab trained Saab service and repair specialists JP Autos of Bristol www.jpautosbristol.co.uk With a full report to the customer and copy invoicing for any remedial work recommended by JP Auto’s (if any) forming part of the cars paperwork at handover. The car will also be MOT tested.
With a CO2 emissions level of 213 G/KM this vehicle annual VED (road tax) is £305, the six month rate is £167.75.
My business is centred on my home in Oldbury on Severn near Thornbury in rural South Gloucestershire some fifteen miles north of Bristol and twenty miles south of Gloucester, a pleasant and quiet location with the benefit of very good motorway access to all parts of the country.
Mark Arnold consists of myself and my wife Lorraine, we have been heavily involved in the Saab product for well over twenty years, and for the last 15 years our business has been virtually 100 percent Saab, that said if you have a non-Saab part exchange then that is not normally a problem, we can always talk about a deal. You will find doing business with me very informal and relaxed, no pressure just nice cars well-presented and marketed by a dealer with a great deal of experience of the Saab brand and very knowledgeable about the stock he has to offer! Every Saab is appraised, test driven, purchased and then sold by myself, consequently I am fully involved in every part of the process. Each car is carefully prepared for sale, thoroughly checked over and where appropriate fully serviced by highly qualified and experienced Saab technicians, there is a strong emphasis on ensuring that each vehicle will give its next owner a pleasant long term Saab experience.
