    Pricing Advice to Sell 2005 9-3 Convertible

    Yes, I've checked Kelly Bluebook, but can't believe a 2005 9-3 in great overall condition is worth so little. 78,427 miles, garaged all its life and pampered. Everything works (except CD player because it didn't like 2 at once). Mechanic didn't call out any problems last week. Top isn't original and in like new condition. Minor dings, a dent, faded emblem, carpeting like new, no cracks on leather seats or dashboard. NO RUST! What's the best way to find a buyer who appreciates the mechanics of this vehicle? Thanks for your suggestions ~

    eBay is a good way to reach a large audience and doesn't cost too much money. It is a 15-year old car and a detailed description, good pictures, maintenance and repair history will get you the best price. Cars.com is a popular nationwide site as well and you can try craigslist or Facebook for a local listing.

    You can also list in the Marketplace here on SaabWorld: http://saabworld.net/wp/marketplace/

    I know of someone who didn't want to get robbed or raped so the car was sold on ebay for a little less than a private sale on Craigslist. The car was then shipped to the buyer.

    If the Saab is in good shape, forums such as this and Saabnet may be helpful. Readers here appreciate Saabs.

    Saabs have low resale values because of low demand. It used to be better.

    Saab did give away one free emblem a few years ago after they went bankrupt. I got one. On ebay, you can buy high quality stickers to stick on the front emblem.
