Vehicle description

Priced to sell - Far under KBB
Runs beautifully! This has been my daily driver with weekly 350 mile commutes from Chicago to Michigan. Never have once had a single problem. Super reliable in city and on highway. I have driven this car coast to coast a couple times with over 140k miles on it without any concern and still would. It is mechanically smooooth and turbo still has impressive oomph for a car of its mileage.
The Good:
Reliable for ANY use - Daily driver/ commuter/ cross country Convertible top works great 28.2 mpg (currently averaging) Hot heat and cold AC Heated Seats New tires Leather & Paint still in really presentable shape worth being proud of Cold started today after sitting for the last 6 weeks of freezing weather & started instantly - Engine found a calm idle in literally seconds after starting
The Bad:
After getting used to the super sensitive breaks on my brand new car, I realized the brakes on the Saab are pretty soft. Saab was driven from Michigan today and felt completely in control. I wouldn"t have even noticed if it weren"t for my my new car. But if it is something the buyer might prefer to update, new brake shoes should suffice, which is a cheap solution.
Burns oil, but very little. I check the oil every 4th or 5ht time I fill-up on gas and on average I need to add about a 1/2 quart
All dash board indicator lights are illuminated - from what I understand, these can be reset at by a mechanic, but they don"t bother me enough to put money into fixing over something so inconsequential.
Thermostat display panel seems to work when it wants; fortunately the buttons alongside it are intuitive enough that the display isn"t necessary
1 inch long rust bubble on left rear quarter panel (shown in picture #7)
Front bumper was hit by someone backing into a parallel parking spot. This happened a couple years ago and is merely cosmetic. (shown in picture #8)
2 inch rip in seam of driver"s seat. (shown in picture #9)
