Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Great value, fun to drive
by sports car enthusiast from Downtown Minnesota | February 2, 2009
Have owned a 1996 Saab 9000CS for about a year. Gets great mileage (averages around 28 mpg) and is plenty fast. Easy to mod engine to get it 200 hp. Nice car to work on with plenty of space under the hood. The interior is quality leather that looks fine after 13 years. Highly recommended. Only disadvantage--no cupholders!

I had one for a year and a half before i sold it. It ran well but is not for the speed demon in you. It is a great to work car that you can depend on. My friend got in an accident and had a 97 saab and i can say that it was a very safe. He was alright even though he was hit by a drunk driver going 65!
