There is an art to squeezing the maximum amount of money out of your customers. It is actually an art and a science and there are people called marketers who spend their entire career trying to get the consumer to pay more for less…which is the unfortunate reality of a really well prepared used car advertisement. The more time a person spends trying to lure you into buying their car with glossy photos and catchy prose, the more money you are going to have to shell out. On the other hand, a poorly created ad with bad photos is, more often than not, the best way to buy a used car. Always remember, the condition of the car is more important than the condition of the advertising photos — that is something you can take to the bank.

The Subaru WRX was a suped up version of the standard base Subaru Impreza — the WRX added a turbocharger and some fun sometime in the 2001 model year. In 2005 Saab got into the all-wheel-drive fun game and launched the 9-2X which was available in WRX-turbo Aero version and in the basic non-turbo Linear […]
The Saab 9-2X (aka the Saabaru) tones down some of the boy racer Japanime styling of the Subaru Impreza WRX, but keeps the neck-snapping turbocharged 2 liter flat-4 and asphalt-gripping all-wheel-drive. Saab sold a few more than 10,000 examples of the odd little wagon and this next one is high mile example, but cheap. Time […]
We like the Saabaru because it combines cool Saab styling with the reliable and trusty Subaru Impreza wagon chassis. From 2005-2006 Saab sold rebadged WRXs as the 9-2X, the ‘Aero’ trim was the one to get because it came with a turbocharged engine and 2006 model year had a detuned STi engine. Find this 2005 Saab […]
Dear DT: Unless I’m totally wasted, this seems like an amazing deal? 2005 Saab 9-2X offered for $6500 near Baltimore, MD — Jeff S. Dear Jeff S: Unfortunately (if you are a Saabaru owner) or fortunately (if you want to be a Saabaru owner) prices for late model Saabs are following the depreciation curve of […]
When Saab released the 9-2x wagon based on a Japanese import, it seemed like a gift from the heavens. You get your funky Scandinavian badge with reliable Japanese powerplant, except that the car was built by Subaru…which means you get a car with plastics that look like they came from a yogurt container factory, and […]
The Subaru flat-4 has been given a pass from enthusiasts for being unreliable even though they routinely act like Alec Baldwin when he sees a traffic cop…which is to say they froth at the seals and blow up suddenly. I only say this because of the extrodinary number of WRX/STi/9-2xs offered at around 80k miles […]
