Exclamation 06 9-3 sedan 2.0T 76,123 miles

Hey, I'm going to look at a 9-3 today it has 76,123 miles on it. Is there anything I need to watch out for? It's a 5-speed manual.

What year 9-3 are you looking at? If it's pre-2002 I'd get the oil pan pulled and cleaned and also need to know what engine is in it. If it's a 2.0 turbo - check the turbocharger for shaft play and if there's any oil in the hoses leading to the intercooler. If it's a V6 - check when the timing belt was replaced and see if there's any indication of antifreeze leaking.
