Please contact me for more details, but here are the highlights:

MOT April 2010

200k on the clock


Good points:
Runs really well, starts first time. Lots of mod cons: climate control (works great), electric windows all round, stereo, central locking, leather seats, alloy wheels etc. Quick as the proverbial - around 200bhp, 0-60 6.5 secs. Engine in good nick and good for many more miles yet - don't let the high mileage put you off - these go on for years. Will return up to 42mpg, averages 30. Large practical family car that's a bit of a wolf in sheep's clothing :twisted:

Bad points: dent in driver's side front wing. Passed MOT with this as it is, so not a major concern except cosmetic. Will need new tyres all round. Needs tracking doing. Central locking plays up a bit. 3rd gear can be a bit notchy. Ignition return spring broken so when you start the engine you have to manually flick the key back to stop engaging the starter motor (again, not hard to do and not a show stopper, you just have to remember to do it!!). There's a few more minor things - again contact me for details.

Looking for a quick pick up as it's on mother-in-law's drive. It is in Derby.


£350 as is or £480 to include the 9 months' tax disc remaining.


If you choose not to take the tax disc it's up to you to ensure you can safely remove the car legally. There is a post office locally that does tax discs so you could do it yourself before driving away.

About to go on Ebay but will pull auction if bought here first.

Are you sure it's the 2.3 Turbo? The 2.3t like the badge on the back is the light pressure LPT one, 170bhp not 200bhp.

My local Saab dealer still has one on the service books that's done 800k.

well it *would* be the LPT one with 170bhp, but I have 'tweaked' it a little so it's nearer 200bhp :wink:
