My brother-in-law has an 02' Black Viggen coupe he's about to trade in. Figured I would throw it up here before he trades it in this weekend.

Details:

-Original owner
-94k miles
-Good condition, minor scuffs on the bottom of the front lip

Add-ons:

-Thule rack
-"Viggen" front plate

He bought the car new and has treated it very well. He's not much of a car guy so he had it serviced at Saab in Milford, CT for everything. Car has been babied through its whole life, I honestly think he's brought it up to 95 MPH once!

If there's any interest shoot me a PM. He would take $6500 this weekend, if not he is trading it in for $6,000

I would be interested in the Thule rack if he's interested in selling it.

Ero, a stretch but I would think if he could make money on the deal it would be worth it! Just hard to say what they would give you w/o them looking at the car.

If he sells it for $6K privatly then he has to pay more tax on whatever he's buying, the extra $500 should cover that.

Tax is part of it, but its also much easier to just drive to the dealership and hand the keys over, rather than dealing with all that comes with selling a car to a private party.

If it goes for trade in I'll have him strip the rack off and post it up here.

Pretty good deal at 6.5k, but I disagree it's worth a few grand more. To me, and probably to most, that's fair value for a stock car. If it was stage 3 and had desireable mods, then maybe 8500, but these cars are a tough sell. Just ask rkelly and jameson about getting fair value for nicely modded viggens.

If I were the owner, it would be pretty hard to turn down a 6k, no questions asked, trade-in offer. Cars are a tough sell this time of year considering the winter weather and upcoming holidays. If the dealer offers 6k, he should definitely take it. Btw, what is the owner getting now?

I think rkelly is referring to me? A lot of people get the user name confused :(. My Vig was a real tough sell with all the mods. Ended up getting $7,500 for it. They're getting the 2011 VW Tiguan. Your right though, 6k trade in is hard to pass up, I would have done the same with my Viggen to avoid all the headaches I went through selling mine.

Does he want a 9-5 Aero?

:D
Or my dad's '91 Ford Explorer? lol Just kidding. (Dads been wanting a Viggen lately :)) Good luck with the sale and that's a beautiful car!
Sorry guys, he isn't interested in trades.

thats a real good deal at 6.5k
any interior etc. pics?
what color interior?
any mech issues?
Nope, thats the only picture I could get. Maybe get some more tomorrow. Its black interior, no sunroof model. He has an Ipod adaptor inside. Also has winter floor mats. I had left out the windows were tinted. I think they are 35%.

No mechanical issues at the moment. I can see what he's replaced in the last year if anyones interested.

6500 trade in is fine and good....if that's what he's really getting. it's a numbers game. as i'm sure most of you know.

The trade-in is $6,000. They already took a look at the car, so I would have to think they would back their offer.

Bet the price of the VW is jacked up a couple grand to offset the price of the trade in :rolleyes:
They are leasing the VW so price shouldn't be affected.
