Vector 9-5 1.9 Tid Estate, 2006, Northamptonshire, £900.
I have had this car for five years now, and covered only 25,000 miles or so. It's tested until June 4th 2017, and has only done perhaps 400 miles since its last test. It's got 115,000 miles on it now, and goes and handles well. During my ownership, it's had a clutch, heater valve, suspension bushes, front discs, inlet manifold, turbo hoses, and a new battery earlier this year. It's the 150 horsepower version.

Full black leather, towbar fitted, Bury hands free system (I can let you have a Blackberry phone to suit that) six disc single slot CD player, subwoofer in load bay. It's finished in Smoke Beige metallic, which flips from grey to brown, (if it's clean) in bright sunlight.

Has a few issues, some just typically SAAB.

The fuel gauge works most of the time, not always, but starts working again after filling up... By which I mean it can stop working when you've got half a tank on board, showing empty, but filling her up generally sorts it out. £the sender and lift pump are integrated in one £500 unit, so I've not had it changed.

The Reverse Assist sometimes works, sometimes doesn't...

The electric mirror adjustment switch needs to be changed, since it needs to be pressed really hard to work (always did)

The car's currently sorn'd and uninsured.

Contact me via UK Saabs, or ring me on 07731 831534 to discuss it, or arrange viewing

The headlamps sometimes switch themselves off, needing to be switched off manually to reset them. Can't get to the bottom of that, and it's a pain.

Make me an offer if you fancy a cheap, reasonably quick estate with a little work needed. I'm looking for a motorcycle just now (FJ1200, GSX1100, ZZR1100... whatever)

I've just dropped the price considerably, to perhaps generate some interest. I enjoyed the car while I used it, but found its sporting nature just too tempting.

The car's been sold, to a dealer who bought it unseen, travelled a long distance to collect, was very complimentary about it when he saw it, and said how well it went on his return journey. To the guys who asked for pictures, then didn't make contact again... Why? It was a good car at a bargain price

Yes, I have pictures, but the file sizes are too large to upload.
Email, I'll send what I have. (Only a couple of weeks old, in case you wondered)
