Is a Saab for you?

If you’re after the epitome of refined driving, whatever that is, then maybe a Saab isn’t for you. Maybe you should try a Lexus.
If you’re after supreme roadholding in high speed corners, then maybe a Saab isn’t for you. I hear BMW do that stuff quite well.
If you’re not sure whether you want a performance car or a luxury car, then every Audi ever made is just like you.
If you’re looking for an engine that screams at high revs, ‘cuase you like that sort of thing, a Saab probably isn’t for you. You should probably check out a performance Honda.
If you want gadgets that tell you what all your other gadgets are doing, Saab probably isn’t for you either.
If you want rock solid reliability and the soul of a car doesn’t matter to you, forget Saab. Maybe you should shop for a Toyota.
If you want butterflies to kiss you and fish to jump on your hook in thanks for you apparent environmental goodness, then maybe a Prius is what you’re after. Maybe.
If you want people to openly admire how well you’ve done for yourself then a Saab definitely isn’t for you. I can point you towards a couple of Mercedes dealers.
If you’re having a mid-life crisis then a red MX-5 is just around the corner.
If the only real engine in your mind is a V8, mate, then your local Ford or Holden dealership is the place to go.
But if you love driving and have a history of forming links and attachments with the cars you own and the people that make them, then maybe a Saab might suit you.
But if you’re after a car made by a company with a history of innovation, perhaps a Saab’s worth considering.
If you like the rush of a turbocharger and find torque steer to be somewhat interesting, then it’s quite likely that a Saab’s for you.
If you want the best seats in the business….
….and fantastic cabin ergonomics….
….if you love the idea of V6 performance from a four cylinder engine…
….and the possibility to uprate it even higher….
….then maybe you should be looking at a Saab.
If you want innovations that make sense, like headlamps wired into the ignition, a dash that can be de-luminated at night except for the information you need and heated seats, for example, then perhaps a Saab is what you’re looking for.
If you enjoy owning a brand of car that has a big and enthusiastic ownership base that you can connect with, then a Saab should definitely be on your list.
If you can look at this picture and know exactly what it means, then maybe a Saab is for you.
If you like the smell of two-stroke, perhaps a Saab might suit you.
If you want to be able to carry recliner chairs, washing machines, motorcycles, large amounts of musical equipment, or whatever else in your own car and not have them delivered, an older Saab hatch would be perfect for you.
If you like the idea of owning a sleeper, then a Saab could be what you’re looking for.
If you like the fact that you don’t see your own car on the road every 10 2 minutes, well….
And if you like the idea of driving what’s proven to be one of the safest cars in the world in both crash test and real world environments, maybe a Saab is what you’re after.
Most of all, if you want all these attributes – safety, comfort, performance, fun, responsibility, utility, innovation, history, anonymity and exclusivity – all in the one car…..
…..then maybe a Saab is for you.
