    2011 9-4X for sale on EBAY

    Hey Wulf, I just saw your 9-4X for sale on EBAY, I was surprised to see it, it's a beauty, (really nice photos btw), I'm sure someone will snap it up in short order.
    If I wasn't on the end of the economy that's still screwed, I would love to be driving it around. Best of luck with the sale !

    It was a difficult decision to offer it for sale because it is the best Saab I have owned and was waiting for a Saab crossover for a long time. However.. it's time to move on with my life and need a new career challenge. And unfortunately, a monthly car payment doesn't fit into a possible uncertain future.

    And I didn't want to put it in the Marketplace here on the site yet because I felt my history with the frequent buying and selling Saabs was bad enough.

    I guess the secret is out now so I might as well place an ad here as well.

    New or newer Saabs are a tough sell right now, even though mine has the advantage of having a full GM warranty. I am not in any major hurry so lets' see what happens.

    You are probably the only person I would feel good about buying a vehicle from. I've followed your vehicle history from SC days, you really take care of your rides.
    I can definitely identify with the, "uncertain future" scenario, it's the creed by which photographers live out through their entire careers.

    I sold my house last year which actually happened must faster than I expected in this market in northern Michigan. I am just a bit tired of the regular 8-to-5 job routine with a predictable future. I need something that I enjoy doing.

    Maybe I'll just buy a van or motorcycle and roam around the world for a couple of years. Or a sailboat and follow the trade winds.

    I haven't lost too much money on my previous Saabs. The sales tax is often a big expense and loss. But I just see it as a hobby. And it has been a wonderful experience buying different Saabs in Sweden, Florida, California and a few other places in between. Perhaps I should try a Saab 900 or 9000 next and find one in Alaska. Or a 99? Perhaps a 96. So many Saabs to try, so many places to see!

    Not a hobby for this woman, who finally sold her daily driver, a 1964 Mercury Comet with 576,000 miles. Rachel Veitch: Orlando grandmother reaches end of road after 576K miles in 1964 Mercury Comet - Orlando Sentinel She stopped driving because of poor eyesight. She bought a replacement battery with a lifetime warranty and then went through 18 batteries over the years!

    I would say that she beat the system....
