I'm shopping around for used cars and I've found an automatic 2003 Saab 9-5 with the 2.3 liter turbocharged engine. If I recall correctly, turbocharged engines need extra care. What specifically should I be checking out to see if it is in good working condition? If/when I go to check out the car, I will most likely have it checked by a mechanic, but I wanted a friend of mine to see if it is worth checking first, and would like to tell him what to look for.
They're asking 5500 for 92k miles with automatic transmission.
