Glad to see Tim back and that is a sign things are looking up. Now as far as those who don’t want to hear more about NEVS on this list, and I was one of the those who stated they should have a separate list. Let’s get real, when any news of any type about car production comes up, the comments jump from 2, or 3, to 5 times that amount. Where there…[Read more]
My view also Angelo. I think we need a second site, one for NEVS. Which I would read also, but I’m getting confused about what is Saab, or if any of this going forward is about Saab.
Video has been removed by owner, but based on what you telling us, you are correct. The current record holder in the U.S. for Triumphs also is a hoarder. I think he has about 110, only 2 or 3 of them actually run. He is somewhere around St Louis. This tends to be a problem with older classic car collectors. I worry about becoming like this…[Read more]
Love to get my hands one, they maybe the last. I wonder how difficult it would to bring one in the U.S.? I used to know the rules, but I think they have changed. There was once a one time life exemption one per person from EPA regs, but I don’t think it still exist. Anyone know??
Angelo: My old friends in the gas trade tell me it also has to do with demand in Europe for Diesel. That and the fact that several east coast refineries have closed as they are too old to complete with off shore refineries. With gas now down to about $2.75 nationwide diesels are not coming back anytime soon. Demand for all motor fuels is flat, at…[Read more]
Till, +1. Only one comment, tech stuff is great, but be careful it does not become the only thing that appears on SU. So many of the old clubs, that is all they do. Keep SU fresh and alive with stories of people and their cars. take care
Hans H, Two years ago, if you were around then, I made the same statement here, and ” Tim” informed me I was wrong, it was someone in pre-GM management that made decision to go upscale, not GM. It is getting very, very, old to blame GM for the situation you now find in NEVS. Let’s try the Swedish govt. not looking out for it’s own.
Here is…[Read more]
Clam down and read this, not everyone agrees. “www.plugincars.com/real-world-leaf-range-27-38-miles.http: ”
I guess this former owner is misinformed somehow.
Recent owner surveys of the leaf, have stated repeatedly that number is inflated. Apparently it’s not recommended that you drive the Leaf down to the last 15% or so, as this will cause premature battery failure. Owners that I read claim they only drive their vehicles about 40 to 50 miles between recharge. Don’t know if that’s true I don’t…[Read more]
Range 200 K is more than respectable. That would be about 125 miles. I think that is the news of the day. That makes this car work for about 60 % of everyone. Remember Nissan Leaf is about 40 miles. And Elon Musk’s car is about $ 100,000, or more. These would sell well on American’s west/east coasts.
Not a bad gambit, if there are two real bidders out there, this may be for their benefit, not ours. And it wasn’t something impressive, why would they bother to show at this point? My guess is, whatever it is, it’s better than Nissan Leaf. Maybe twice the range?

100% Saab; I agree with you. My three 9- 3s are worth perhaps at this point, no more than $11-$12,000. They’re beginning to break down. One has 127,000, the other has 117,000, and the youngest one only has 90,000. What’s breaking ? The computers operating the doors, I.e. not locking,or unlocking correctly. alarms systems that go off when they…[Read more]
What’s amazing about the Combi, Is the amount of stuff you get in the back of it. We use our Combi, and our 97X, for business. When using the Combi the we get over 30 miles a gallon. Which reduces our cost factors by over one half. US government gives you the same deduction, .56.6 cents per mile gallon, no matter what you drive. I would’ve…[Read more]
So why the sour grapes? The moderators on this board have since the beginning, including the previous two owners, been very supportive of any ownership that would keep the factory open. Even the worst critics on this blog, in theory supported this position. What was the alternative? No Saab? Yes, I agree, a lot of the comments from the…[Read more]
p.s. our 9-7X is going to work tomorrow to make us money for our business. It is kind of a blue collar Saab. if you know what I mean.
