2006 SAAB 9-2X 2.5i AWD Automatic Ask $1600

I purchased the 9-2X from a Toyota dealership in Richmond, KY in June of last year. Saturday, March 14, the engine started running rough. I took the car in for a diagnosis at Quantrell Subaru Monday morning, and they confirmed my suspicions. (Head gasket failure). The car is still financed through Toyota Financial Services. The car starts and runs, but is loosing compression on the RH head. It will run pretty smooth around 55mph but stutters obviously at times. Was never driven with high RPM or above 55mph when compression loss was noticed on March 14. Engine never overheated or went above normal operating temperature between then and March 16 when I took it to dealership.

96,000 miles

Two minor rear-end accidents. 1st-rear bumper cover was replaced and quarter panel repaired. 2nd-rear bumper, cargo door, muffler & tailpipe assembly replaced, LH combo lamp refit.
CEL LH & RH intake valve control solenoids and small evap leak
When throttled heavier, shift from 1-2 gear can be rough
Engine does consume small amounts of oil. Technician said I had a small leak from underneath.
Previous owner burned one cigarette size hole each on seat of LH and RH seat. I just presume it was from a cigarette given the burn size. I do not notice any tobacco odor form the cabin.
One screw missing from glove box area that I noticed when replacing the cabin air filter.
Previous owner stuck some kind of gum or some substance on inside of center console
Cargo area light cover is missing.

I am the third owner. Since I purchased, I have changed engine oil and filter three times and rotated tires twice. Patched puncture on RH rear. Installed new OEM washer blade refills on front and back. Changed air cabin filter. The two collisions were fixed appropriately to my knowledge. I have all of my service records.

You could find a used EJ and drop it in instead of selling if you want.  Would be the cheapest option.  Car is in good shape for it's age overall.
