2008 model (New Look) Saab 9-3 2.8T 255 bhp Aero Saloon 6 speed manual, with Saab touch Screen Satellite Navigation and Blue Tooth. £5,500
First registered on the 3rd December 2007, this is a 2008 model (new look) 65,000 mile Saab dealer and Saab specialist service history vehicle finished in Ice Blue metallic with the Parchment and dark Grey accented Saab Sport Leather interior with some very useful extra cost specification!
Specification includes the Saab 2.8 litre 255 bhp V6 twin scroll turbo petrol engine with the 6 speed Manual Gearbox, Saab ALU 65 Alloy Wheels, ABS, Climate Control with Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, Driver and front seat passengers front and side air-bags with side "curtain" type air-bags, 60/40 split fold down rear seats, Electronic Stability Program, electrically adjustable mirrors, heated front seats, The Saab Business Pack Satellite Navigation and Audio System with a single CD player, auxiliary IPod and MP3 input and the Saab Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity system, Saab Information Display, Rear Parking Sensors, Remote Central Locking and Alarm.
This car is fitted with the extra cost (£1,980) Saab Business Pack touch screen Satellite Navigation and Audio System with Saab Bluetooth Connectivity, a very useful addition to the cars specification with Saab’s Bluetooth connectivity option allowing the hands free use of mobile phones through the cars built in Bluetooth reception and depending on the model of phone allows for “hands free” functions using the steering wheel mounted controls, with access of the phones data base and directory that then display on the cars information system immediately in front of the driver, the system also has Voice Activated Dialling. In all a very useful addition to both the convenience and safety of this vehicle. Please bear in mind that the presence of the “Phone” buttons on a Saab 9-3’s steering wheel do not mean the car actually has the integrated Bluetooth system, Saab used the same steering wheel design on almost all 9-3’s but the Bluetooth system was fitted to comparatively few cars especially at that time.
The Saab B284 V6 engine is superbly smooth and wafts this car along in a perfectly effortless manor, comfort performance and if not driven too hard a surprisingly good fuel economy on longer journeys. I sold this car to its last owner a retired university lecturer at 44,000 miles in February 2012 and have recently had the opportunity to re-purchase the vehicle from him as he and his wife have decided to buy themselves a Motorised Caravan and will neither have the room or the need to keep the Saab, as can be seen from the mileage covered since February 2012 they have been very low mileage users averaging around 3,500 miles a year since acquiring the car. However they have kept the vehicle in a very good condition and it is virtually indistinguishable from the day I sold it to them!
Originally supplied when new by Saab City of London, the cars first four services were performed by Lookers Saab with services at 11,818 miles, 23,425 miles, 34,965 miles and 43,346 miles the car was then serviced by the Saab specialists Perry and Prouse of Exeter at 48,078 miles and then by the Saab specialist SB auto Services of Crediton . As part of the cars preparation for its next owner a full inspection and a Main service will be performed by my preferred local Saab service specialists, JP Autos of Bristol www.jpautosbristol.co.uk the stamped service document, a copy of their inspection report and copy invoices for the service and any remedial maintenance they felt necessary or desirable will form part of the vehicle’s paperwork at handover. The car is MOT tested until the 3rd of December 2018, there are no advisories on the MOT test. In addition to the cars stamped service document I also have a number of service and maintenance invoices for the vehicles as well as its previous MOT tests.
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.
