Default Opinions on Buying this Used Saab

Hi! I need a new (used) car. The company I work with has an interoffice classifieds system and I'm considering the following ad:

Quote:
2001 Convertible Saab Red with black top. 145,000 miles. Well maintained. Great condition $3,800
The only kind of convertible for 2001 is the 9-3 SE 2-door, and the pic seems to show exactly like the stuff I could see on other sites.

According to Kelly Blue Book, the price is fair for that year, make and mileage, but my concern is I don't want another money pit. Does anyone know how Saabs hold up? Am I likely to be in another repairing for more than its worth situation like I am with my current Volvo?

Any opinions would be much appreciated. Thank you.

$3,800? What's wrong with it? Saabs are solid cars.

Other than super expensive to fix last I recall(and I am not sure if this is a GM Saab or true Saab), I personally really like Saab's.
