His n Hers Saab 9-5s

This story came through from Fred Shaw at Shaw Saab, in Norwell, MA.

Great stuff!

Fred recently sold not one, but two Saab 9-5s to long-time customers of his, Steve and Lori. It may well be the first “his-n-hers” delivery of new Saab 9-5s in the world.

Steve selected a 2011 9-5 Turbo4 in Fjord Blue metallic paint with Parchment Leather. Lori picked out a 9-5 Turbo4 in Oak metallic with Parchment. Steve & Lori have been long time, loyal Shaw Saab customers and remain true to the Saab brand.

I mentioned they’re loyal customers. Check this out for a vehicle history……

  • 1995 – Lori gets a 1995 9-3 for herself & Steve
  • 1998 – Lori and Steve each lease the new 9-5
  • 2002 – Lori and Steve lease 2 other 9-5’s
  • 2006 – Lori and Steve lease 2 more 9-5’s
  • 2006 – Steve’s parents lease a 9-3
  • 2008 – Lori leased a 9-3 convertible and Steve leased a 9-3 SportSedan
  • 2008 – Steve’s parents buy a used 9-5
  • 2010 – Lori and Steve each lease the brand new 2011 Saab 9-5 Turbo4

In addition to these vehicles for Steve, Lori and parents, you can count in many more in-laws, friends & associates.

Those are good clients to have and Shaw Saab are obviously serving them well.

My thanks to Fred for the image and the details. And congratulations to Steve and Lori.

Lori & Steve you are heroes and I hope that you have alot of friends to, I bet you have.

Lease is the thing, in Sweden 80% of Saab sales is leasing. That´s the key to success I think.
Therefor SCNA must fix good deals in that department.

Just a little bit of not-picking: the car Lori purchased in 1995 would have been a (NG) 900, not a 9-3.

I was going to point out the same thing, but you did it before me.

Anyways, congratulations to Steve and Lori!

There were no 9-3’s in 1995, I bet a ‘900’ is intended.

Anyway, this couple will indeed have a great driveway! 🙂

This couple should be invited by Saab to write its story for the next Saab Magazine.

Mark Atherton, my Sales Manager since 1994, deserves all the credit for selling these 2011 9-5’s as well as nurturing Steve & Lori throughout the years since 1995.

Congrats on Lori & Steve on their new purchase..and Congrats to Shaw Saab. It seems this couple love their Saabs and are loyal to Shaw Saab. This is the way it should be @ every saab dealer not just a few. At this point in time Saab cannot even afford to give just good services they need to give GREAT service ! There should be zero tolerance for bad service or lack of follow up, such as the fellow who complained about his saab dealer a few days ago on this site.

I bet their neighbours are sooo jealous. Congratulations to them both and to their local Saab dealer for selling TWO of these fabulous cars.
