Swedish Dealer Showing Enthusiasm

 

We had an email today that is really worth sharing. Now not being from Sweden myself, I know nothing of this dealer and would welcome them to send us a story about themselves, their staff and their commitment to the Saab brand. It’s great to hear from Swedish dealers that are standing behind the brand that for many years made them a lot of money. When things got tough not all of the dealers stood behind Saab and some have even been just as nasty as some of the Swedish media. Thank you to Bengt in Scania for sharing this story with us.

Hej!

Sorry about my Swenglish!

I took a little spin in my Sonett today to check brakes and other things after some time in the garage. I visited our local Saab and Opel dealer Hörby Bil & Traktor www.bilotraktor.com  just to say hello and ask about how they are feeling about Saab and the future.

They normally just have open weekdays but today they had open house on a saturday and  there have been a lot of customers, all looking for Saabs. There is also some Saab customer  ordering the new 9-5 Combi. The Saab dealer was very enthusiastic about the future. He is looking forward to the start up at the factory and sent greetings to Trollhättan and the October Fest.

This small dealer in Hörby is well known for years in my part of Sweden, Scania. OK it´s small, no fancy buildings and so on but many Saab owners in Scania have their service done at the work shop.

All the best and see you at the October fest!

Well they were not selling 9-5 Combi but some Saab enthusiast had been there and ordered one.

This dealer started for some 75 years ago selling farmers stuff such as tractors. The name Bil & Traktor is Car & Tractor in English.

We have had some meetings at the place with our local Saab Club and here you have some pictures:

Nice to hear and the 9-4x looks magnificent in white. It really sets of the ice headlights.

Bil & Traktor and Otto Olssons Bil are two dealers I hope Saab enthusiasts in Skåne (Scania) promote instead of the big Bilpartner as has stepped aside when it is hard times for Saab.

I have never been satisfied with Bilpartner in Lund and Malmö. And I own an Opel also…
They have too far between mechanic and customer reception (or whatever it is called).

Yes we do Lars! Friendly people at both places.

For those of you who don’t read swedish, this picture just has to be translated – because its so fun! 😉

The sign above the beautiful SAAB says: “CAR & TRACTOR”.

I just guess this dealer also sells… Volvo ? Hehehehe LOEL (lots of evil laughter) ):-]

Bil & Traktor…Well, I guess that “bil” is equivalent to SAAB but are they selling VOLVOs as well? 😉

They are selling Saab and Opel. Selling tractors was many years ago but the name still lives.
