As a service to those that might be interested, I spotted this on a forum called Slickdeals. This guy’s just snatched a 9-2x Linear 2.5 automatic for what seems to be a pretty sweet price. The word is that dealers are shifting heaven and earth to get them out the doors to make way for MY2007 vehicles – not 9-2x’s obviously.
Just picked up the Saab 9-2xi for $17,500 + tax, tag, and title. It’s an automatic with options (power sunroof & cold weather package). MSRP was $26,790. They’re clearing these cars out like hotcakes…..Since this car is no longer in production (only a limited number were produced in 2005 & 2006 only) and 2007 cars are starting to arrive on the lots, they need to get rid of these fast, so they dropped the price. Since GM is offering a $5000 rebate through 10/2, it gets another price drop. The one I purchased stickered for $26,790 then reduced to $24,990, then $19,990 after rebate. This is before I showed up and haggled.
There’s no Aeros left, but if you’re after a smallish reliable AWD wagon with a substandard interior (OK, I’m kidding – sort of) then this is your bargain opportunity.
