It has been taken to Saab and European specialist shops for every repair and I have paperwork for everything! Receipts from my ownership easily exceeds 10k and I have another 10-15k in receipts from the past owner as well. Not a penny has been spared. 

Recent maintenance includes:

New oil pump (2018)

New clutch within the last 10k miles (2018… $2500)

In short, the car is in terrific shape and is in need of a new and loving home.
