“Saab Parts UK” Keeps Saab Owners Motoring

Press Release from Saab Parts UK, 9th February, 2012

  • New Parts Company set up in UK
  • Service & Repair network established
  • Servicing continues as normal
  • Saab Service Club open to all Saab Owners

Saab Automobile Parts UK Ltd (trading as Saab Parts UK), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Saab Automobile Parts A.B., commenced trading in the UK on the 1st January, 2012. This newly formed company has been set up to provide on-going supply of genuine Saab Parts and customer service packages.

With an established and extensive network of 87 Saab Authorised Repairers spread across the UK, customers can be confident of Saab’s highly skilled team of technicians having the experience and expertise to service and repair their cars to the highest standards. Customers can find their nearest Authorised Repairer through the Saab website Dealer Locator page at www.saab.co.uk.

Saab parts supply continues to operate as normal within the UK and Saab Authorised Repairers offer customers a comprehensive range of servicing offers and attractively priced Saab used cars. All Saab Authorised Repairers use genuine Saab parts, which are covered by a two-year warranty. For those interested in acquiring one of the last built unregistered Saabs, there are approximately 200 across the dealer network to choose from at very competitive prices. Reassuring driver mobility, Saab AA Roadside Assistance remains in place and active for all Saabs registered new in the UK before 29th November, 2011 and covering the vehicle for three years.

Capitalising on the launch success from 2011, Saab Parts UK in collaboration with the Saab Authorised Repairer network is continuing to offer the “Saab Service Club” for the benefit of owners. With close to 15,000 members, the Service Club is now being extended to all Saab drivers irrespective of vehicle age. The loyalty scheme is free to join and provides a host of exclusive benefits to members including free visual health checks and discounts on parts, servicing and accessories. Owners can register with the Service Club via the Saab web-site at www.saab.co.uk.

Corin Richards, Managing Director of Saab Parts UK, said:

Following the sad demise of Saab Great Britain Ltd at the end of last year, Saab Parts UK was set up to continue to provide a parts and customer care facility for the 188,000 Saabs that are on UK roads. With a dedicated network of Saab Authorised Repairers covering the whole of the UK and the Channel Islands, Saab owners can be reassured that their vehicle will still be looked after by experienced and trained Saab technicians and only genuine Saab parts will be used. Saab Parts UK has now established itself with its first successful month of trading and coupled with the on-going partnership from the network will continue to provide high quality vehicle care. Moving forwards, we will continue to expand our customer programmes offering added value and we warmly welcome new members to the Saab Service Club.

Hopefully something like this will happen here in the US.

Great news for the UK lucky owners. We can now pray the Gryphon god that we will have that chance in USA and Canada.

I received the following email from a local dealership in Michigan, USA:
GREETINGS FROM SAAB OF TROY!

WE HAVE GREAT NEWS FOR SAAB OWNERS!

SAAB PARTS ARE NOW AVAILABLE AND BEING SHIPPED TO OUR PARTS DEPARTMENTS ON A DAILY BASIS IN ORDER FOR US TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR VEHICLE NEEDS!

I hope this is a start for good things to follow.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that warranties get reinstated as I purchased a 2011 9-5 Turbo4 Premium back in November..

Just from a legal perspective, who authorises the “87 Saab Authorised Repairers” now ?

Obviously excellent news; 188,000 SAABs will generate a substantial revenue stream for them over the years. I have an 11 month old 9-3 saloon, a 4 year old 9-3 sportcombi, and a 19 year old 900 convertible to take care of, so this really is great news. However, I would like to think they’ll focus on the subject of warranties sometime soon, I’m unsure as to whether this can or will be done by Saab Parts UK, but I’d imagine they have a huge vested interest in ensuring new customers don’t become disheartened. I await further warranty news with clenched… Read more »

I was hoping for confirmation of the 3 year free servicing deal, too. Still, any good news is better than none.

I am in a similar situation to you, in that I bought a new Saab in March 2011, my car just needs its 36,000 mile service, Southampton Saab have said that they will honour the 3 year free service deal.

Needless to say I was surprised and very pleased.

I believe that the free servicing deals have been honoured through the goodwill of the new parts company. Contact your nearest Saab dealer/approved repairer to confirm.

Will they ship to the US?

If you can’t get a specific part from a US Saab dealer or through one of the main US distributors (EEuroparts, etc), try PartsforSaabs.com or Neo Brothers. Both are great UK sources…I’ve ordered from both of them. Prices are competitive too, and the customer service is excellent!

Great news for us in the UK. I have heard, unofficially of course, that Saab Parts UK are trying to set up a deal with an independent warranty company to provide warranty cover. It is meant to be as good as the one provided by Saab itself.

We will wait and see and hopefully this will come off.

I think the North American lawsuit has legs to stand on. GM should have seen that Spyker did not have the capitol to make it work and therfore they should be covering the 2010 and 11 warranties. Of course by the time they sort this all out in court, all those will have expired, which is what GM probably already thought of…

It has taken me some time to realize just how important this is to the UK market (d’oh!). Anyone buying a Saab now, new of secondhand, can be absolutely assured of support in terms of parts and servicing, since the profitable parts company is owned by the Swedish Government and so suppliers will have complete confidence that their invoices will be settled. And with 188,000 on the road in the UK, getting older all the time, there will be plenty of work to support a comprehensive servicing network for years to come, irrespective of the future ownership of Saab Atomobile.… Read more »
