Just got my 9-4x

Update: After the jump you’ll find some photos. This MIGHT be the first 9-4x at an owners driveway in history. The first of many to come! / Carl-Henrik

I think mdreuben deserves a huge CONGRATULATIONS!!! from the whole SU team for being the first 9-4x owner. At least the first we have notice from.

This is what he said in a comment he wrote here earlier today:

Just got my 9-4x.

I had a Premium on order, but the dealer (Saab in North Olmsted Ohio) received their first one yesterday – a black Aero, fully loaded. I put my butt into the seat, looked around and bought it on the spot before even driving it. Picked it up an hour or so ago.

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.

I think Cleveland, Ohio is now at least twice as interesting πŸ˜‰

So far everything I’ve discovered on this car is pure Saab – purposeful & well designed.

Totally blown away.

Congrats to mdreuben!

If I were him you’d all have to wait 24hours while I took her (him?) out for a full day driving expedition. Beautiful car and quote obviously a very very proud owner.

PS Is that a speck of dirt I see on the rear bumper? πŸ˜‰

Congrats on the Aero, it looks great. I just came from north shore saab in NY and they have a really nice white one, premium with nav.

I brought my wife to take a look at it, after several months of subtle hints and she fell in love with it. We are going to see if we can trade our current car in for it in the next couple of weeks. I have to say that seeing this car in person gives you a much different perspective, the attention to detail in the styling is fantastic.

This is a gorgeous vehicle. Given the chance, they will really boost sales, especially in North America. I look forward to seeing lots just like this one on the roads. Saab really needs to do a major PR push for these.

Two hours of driving so far today. I think I could live in this thing.

It is plenty big enough to sleep in, you can fit a small cooler bag in there (powered by the lighter socket), and there is ample room for storage.

I do not see the problem. It looks bigger than my other apartment.

Great job on being the first 9-4X owner on SU. It’s an awesome vehicle and will hopefully bring you years of happiiness. Now, when can I stop by for a test drive? Our local dealer won’t get the 9-4 until this fall.

I just looked them up. They have some great deals on new Saabs–$7K off 9-3 convertibles, $6K off hard top 9-3s, $9K off 9-5s. People in the area should rush in to snatch up those gorgeous cars.

That’s grat news for consumers SaabMan……don’t even BEGIN to think it’s good news for Saab NA. One of the things that has Saab in the financial position it finds itself in today is more”Trunk Money” per car than any othe manufacturer in the business!

No 9-4Xs in West Texas yet. I just checked the lot. Are you getting your 9-4X in Lubbock?

Clay McNeely
Member
5 years 2 months ago

Unfortunately, no. Scoggin-Dickey said that they would not be ordering or receiving a 9-4X…and they seemed to question their future with Saab. Our 9-4X is coming from Gebhardt Saab of Boulder in Colorado…hopefully it’ll come in this next week!

We still have to wait another 2 months at least until our ordered 9-4x Aero will arrive here in Switzerland. Does anyone know abiut the situation of the non available colors? We did order the beaty in grey….

Baracuda
Member

Ordered mine first in cobalt grey too. But then the dealer called and said it wouldn’t be available for this year anymore. I switched to zodiak black then because i really want to get the car in september/october.

cmd
Member
5 years 2 months ago

So far I did not get a call from my dealer here in Sitzerland. As it will not produced before September, maybe time is working for us and we just need to wait….
And also maybe you’ll get another call giving you the choice to change back to cobalt grey πŸ˜‰

JH
Member

Since you ordered your Saab 9-4X in Europe it must be a MY2012, and then the original colours should be back. πŸ™‚

Baracuda
Member

As far as i know, my car was produced last week and in black. So i think the chance of getting back to cobalt grey isn’t there anymore. πŸ˜‰ But i must say i really like the black one.
