Where are the petrol NG 9-5s?
« on: 29 November 2017, 07:57:21 AM »
Hi all,

in looking at NG 9-5s, I notice that most offered for sale are diesels.

They did sell a 1.6 turbo petrol that was 150bhp, and there was a 2.0 turbo petrol also....but where are they? Either they sold next to none of them, or owners are not selling them!!!

Go and look at the tax brackets and then look on autotrader for other expensive cars from 2010 onwards, most are diesel. They also didn't make and sell many 9-5's in the first place, I reckon that a bigger percentage of people who got a diesel 9-5 were company car drivers and these have been put into the market after 3 or 4 years but most people who got a petrol 9-5 are likely enthusiastic Saab owners and they don't sell their cars so often, especially now when they can't replace the car with another newer Saab.

There's a regular dribble of 2.0 and 2.8 patrols on AutoTrader. There's two very nice looking 2.0L Aero's on there at the moment, not to mention the two 2.8 Aero's. I just hope there's still a few 2.8 XWD around in about 5 years when I next come to change my car :)

Looking on howmanyleft by year of registration, from 2010 onward there are only 1420 Saab 9-5 in total out there and some of those will be older 9-5 estate models as they continued them into 2010.
