Sorry to say this, but that’s “late news”. It’s been handled in a separate post already. 😉

For Saab owners, it looks like business as usual – many of the original staff look to have been retained, and Parks have obviously just moved in to the same premises as County previously owned. Bearing in mind County had a great reputation, it bodes very well. The new owners currently service my XC90, and are trying hard to offer a high level of customer service. I wish them well, and I hope to be visiting them when my XC90 will need replaced by a different Swedish marque!
Thanks for the personal message, Steven!

Oh my God!

Di.se has a very positive article about Saab, a recent survey in Sweden shows that 60% of the participants believe that Saab will be around as a bigger auto maker in 3 years.

I’m surprised that they didn’t say that 40% think that Saab will die in 3 years, they usually go for the dark side of all positive news 😉

And only 24 percent say that they don’t believe Saab will be alive three years from now, 17 percent of the people don’t know.
So it looks like the opinion of the Swedish people is very different from the opinion of the so called experts in the newspapers. And it is the people that buy cars! 🙂

From the swedish test of the 9-5 SportsCombi: – New improved materials in the cabin!
– Lane departure warning
– Adaptive cruise control
– Start/stop technology.

A very positive review, marginally behind the BMW, but the reviewer finds it much better than the A6 and the V70.

Great news!!

It is also stated, that the 9-5 ave met the expected sales for 2011. (must be January??)

Correct. Even if the number of sales in Sweden could have been better for january, the 9-5 sales are on target and Saab do not expect fantasy numbers for the 9-5 sedan.
