SOLD--FS: 2005 9-2x Linear-Automatic Transmission- $4900 Marietta, GA

For sale SOLD is my 2005 Saab 9-2x Linear. 159,000 miles on it. The car has the typical rock chips on the front from actually being driven, and has a few dings that come with cars typical of this age. (She was mostly this way when I got her.) There's one hideous scrape that the previous owner did a terrible job of covering up with touch up paint.  That being said, the paint is actually in better condition than when I got the car (had it polished and restored as best as possible).

I've done a fair amount of work to the car to get it back up to where it should have been. The car is mechanically sound at this point as far as I know and as far as my mechanic knows.

Work done to the car:
New Radiator
New Power Steering Pump and hosing
New Alternator
New Water pump
Resurfaced heads and installed new steel head gasket
Replaced Rear Main Seal
Replaced Crankshaft Seal
Replaced Camshaft Seal
Replaced Valve Cover Gasket
Replaced Oil Pump Seal
New Sparkplugs and sparkplug seals
Transmission Flush
Rear Diff flush
Upgraded to brighter LED Turn signals and Reverse lights in Rear (no more tickets from pesky cops for a blown light)
Two new tires in the rear


I'm sad to see this car go, but unfortunately I need the cash to get something that better fits my needs. If I could, I'd keep this car.

Car does include Weathertech floormats (not cheap) and a heavy duty cargo mat for the trunk space. Includes working jack, spare, and tools to change wheel that came with car. I do have an owner's manual, but it isn't the original one to this car. ALso includes trailer hitch which does have a connection for trailer lights.

I have all of the service records from the previous owner as well as service records since I have owned the car neatly organized.

Please excuse the dirty floor mats. I'll clean them this week and post more interior pics.

Also, a true Feet n' Meat picture is coming tonight. To help slow the wrath of IAMCHRIS and other denizens there is a picture of my foot next to a sweet SAABaru decal. Please be gentle and only call me a scammer a few thousand times.   Feet N' Meat now included

****UPDATE****
To clarify a few things on the work that's been done to this car. I had the radiator replaced after I noticed some higher than normal temperatures. Turns out the previous owner had dumped a head gasket sealer in that eventually settled and was causing some blockage. After that, I then took the car to Allpro Subaru in Alpharetta to have the head gasket leak fixed. After talking with them, we settled upon having the engine pulled, resurfacing the heads, installing a head gasket typically used on an 05 STI (thicker steel head gasket). While the engine was out, I went ahead and had them replace several seals, the water pump (the timing belt had already been done), new spark plugs (because head gasket leak). That was in May of 2016. I've been driving the car since then with no issues other than a flat tire (nail to the side wall sad )

Car is located in Marietta, GA

Re: SOLD--FS: 2005 9-2x Linear-Automatic Transmission- $4900 Marietta, GA

I about had a heart attack thinking that this car was priced fairly, seeing as how I just sold my 150k Aero for $3500.

KBB lists this car at $2838 in excellent condition... you may need to adjust your asking price.

Re: SOLD--FS: 2005 9-2x Linear-Automatic Transmission- $4900 Marietta, GA

I'm open to negotiating. That being said, KBB tends to price these a good bit less than regular impreza wagons which seems strange since that's essentially what they are. Also, I'm seeing several other imprezas, sedans and wagons, sell for about this price with about the same condition of car.

$3500 for an Aero is a heck of a deal, assuming it was free and in sound mechanical order.

Re: SOLD--FS: 2005 9-2x Linear-Automatic Transmission- $4900 Marietta, GA

Well, your car is not an Impreza in reality (even though we all know that it really is an Impreza underneath the Saab facade). I sold my car for full KBB value at the time. Using Impreza values to price your  92x is not appropriate.

My car was in great mechanical shape (stage 2 OTS tune with accompanying upgrades), although not great cosmetically (on the exterior). It had typical New England rust on both rear quarters, as well as the top edge of the windshield. The underside of the car was also getting crusty, and the rear brake line junction was looking kind of sketchy. Clutch was original as well - and despite having all of the requisite tools and knowing HOW to change the clutch, I lacked the facilities to do it myself. Selling the car before committing to a clutch replacement is $1000-$1500 in my pocket instead of into the car. The leather interior was pretty nice, too.

The car went to a mechanically inclined guy in VA, I was glad to see that it will be taken care of.

GLWS

Fair point.

Had I been in your situation, I would have done the same thing myself.

Thanks man! Should the car sit for a while with no offers, then I'll reconsider price   wink

Car has now been sold for $4450

It went to a guy in the Roswell area. He was pretty excited about it. He's not a member as best as I can tell; I mentioned the forum and got no response about it. Still, he's local to Atlanta. I'll take what I can get.

Yeah, I was happy with the sale price and was able to sell it quickly!  banana  I'll still be around here on the forums though. Hopefully, I'll be able to get back into an aero in a year or two!
