What used Saab 9-3 saloon will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Saab 9-3 saloon?

A used 9-3 will be cheaper to buy than an equivalent Audi, BMW and Mercedes.

Steer clear of the 2.8T turbo, and you should get more than 30mpg in normal driving. In fact, most of the petrols are good for mid-30s, and you can bump that up to low-40s for the 150bhp 1.9 TiD, and potentially more than 50mpg for the 120bhp version.
