2006 MT 2.5i $6500

I'm looking at getting my first 9-2x. This one in Maryland has caught my eye.

https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/l-Used-Sa … 277943388.

Ideally I'd like an MT Aero but looking around nationally it looks like even with travel I'm gonna have to pick either Aero or MT. I'm not a big petrolhead or racing enthusiast or anything but I recently learned manual and I'd like to continue with it so I'm leaning towards non-turbo manual.

I've always wanted a Saab purely for nostalgia (European family members always had 9-3s) but like Subarus and have a good friend/neighbor who works on them. I live in MI and want AWD for the snow. Also will occaisionally be  pulling a very light sailboat behind whatever I get. My budget is about $7g and if don't go for a saabaru I'll probably get a 4wd Forester or CR-V or Escape or similar.

I live within walking distance of my job, like the bus and do a lot of my errands on my bicycle so I anticipate putting under 5k miles on it a year. Mostly will be used for out-of-town trips. Likely will not have access to a garage.

So wondering if the above Saab 2.5i is a good deal on general and for me particularly? I'd have to travel about 400 miles to check it out solo whetherd anything I got locally my mechanic friend would come look at with me. Have read a lot about the rear tower rust and worried about having to take the interior apart to check it at an out of state dealership. Not sure if there are any other major possible issues I should be looking out for.

Thanks for reading!
