It’s been about a decade since Saab’s demise, but we still find ourselves thinking about the oddball Swedish brand often. There are many dedicated Saab owners still out there, keeping their 900s, 9-3s, and 9-5s alive and running, despite the fact that the company hasn’t sold a car in the United States since 2011. If you want to join them in maintaining Saab’s legacy, then you’ll be interested in this 2010 Saab 9-3 SportCombi that is up for sale on the Bring a Trailer auction site—which, like Car and Driver, is part of Hearst Autos.
This 2010 wagon model represents the 9-3’s second generation, which was facelifted in 2008 with a sleeker front-end design. While the refreshed 9-3 had been offered with a turbocharged 2.8-liter V-6 pushing out either 255 or 280 horsepower, in 2010 the engine lineup was reduced to only the base turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four. That motor was good for 210 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque, delivered to the front wheels through a five-speed automatic in this example, although a manual transmission and all-wheel-drive were also available at the time.
This 9-3 SportCombi has just 31,000 miles on the odometer, and it shows. The Snow Silver Metallic bodywork looks pristine and the cream leather interior looks to be in equally good shape. The Saab also has goodies such as an electric sunroof, heated front seats, a power-adjustable drivers seat, cruise control, and a dual-zone automatic climate control. Luckily there’s also an aux port, since we imagine most people won’t have use for the CD player. The factory 16-inch wheels are fitted with 215/55 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All-Season tires, but with date codes from 2015, you’ll probably want to replace them. And while it might take some wrenching to keep a Saab going for years to come, this low-mile example would be a strong place to start. Bidding is currently at $5500 with five days remaining on the auction.
