Funny Ad: “Piece of Sh*t Saab 2004 9-3 Arc Convertible”

Saab for Sale

One disappointed owner of the Saab 9-3 Convertible car decided to sell it.

According to the ad text, the owner of this car was a big Saab fan,  but because of the large number of problems he was disappointed in the car. He replaced many of the key parts in the car, also he got the Tech-2 unit.

Due to the large number of problems he became an Saab expert. Because of all this, he has been selling this convertible cheaply:

I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 Convertible in rough shape. It doesn’t run anymore due to an issue with recognizing the key. I bought a new CIM (Center Integration Module,) ISM (Ignition Switch Module,) I haven’t replaced the ECU. I have new unprogrammed keys and a new SCL (Steering Column Lock,) as well as a new CIM.

This issue with this car is that when you plug the key into the ignition it won’t recognize it as valid despite being a valid key. This is a common issue with these cars but not to this extent, I’m now intimately familiar with every component in this stupid system.

I also have a Tech 2 I’m willing to throw in for a little extra. Hell that thing is probably worth more than the car. I’m totally willing to work with you on this thing too. If you want to buy and ECU I’ll give the immobilizer code and we can work on programming it together to see if we can get the car to drive away.

Other things: Blue, scratched on the right rear quarter panel.
Leather interior – Arc trim level
ICM II Stereo with the Bose package
Soft top convertible, both rear main lift cylinders replaced after puking.
Bumper is shot to sh*t
Missing a little grille on the front.
2 NEW keys ready to be programmed
Tech II Diagnostic/Programmer if you want it
The trunk is in shambles due to me constantly f***ing with the trim back there.
Tow package.
Needs new sway bar bushings, I have them and can help you put them in if you want.
I also have a new wheel bearing. It doesn’t need one, but you can have it if it ever does.

Truth be told I now hate this car. I’ll do whatever to takes to get this out of my driveway. Make me an offer, the price is NOT firm. This car made me a Saab expert, something I never wanted to be. Its got a clean title.
