I would say that Bravada from GMI has hit the nail on the head.
Saab is a natural competitor for Volvo, and always has been to the public at large, at least in the US,
Why would Volvo want Saab to survive? […]
I’ve been saying for years that the sale of Saab tooling for the Saab 9-3 was a big mistake, and really cut Saab’s legs out from underneath them, by making it impossible for the company to be sold to any Chinese […]
Yes, what is with those Audi seats, anyway? The A6 are pretty nice, but the A4 seats are hard as a rock, and the regular seats have no bolstering. The MB-Tex. aka vinyl, seats in Mercedes feel better than the […]
I hate it when people say that Suburu is a Saab competitor, or the natural place for Saab owners to “land”, or whatever.
It’s nonsense, and it mostly comes from those who love to denigrate the brand, like the […]
I have driven the competition: 3-series, C-class, Infiniti G37, Volvo S60.
The 9-3 is simply no longer competitive.

Yes the A4 was put on a totally new platform for MY 2009, the B8 platform. It was not just a facelift. It was a completely new chassis, with the engine moved back behind the front wheels to make it less […]

First off, pre-Spyker, Saab was a division, not a subsidiary of GM, although even if Saab was a subsidiary GM cannot cancel its contractual warranty responsiblities to Saab owners who bought their vehicles while […]
Gee Mike when I bought my Saab it was a GM car OWNED by a US company, The Swedish government had nothing to do with it. Since then I’ve had nothing but mistreatment from the hands of this deadbeat company, still […]
Mike: The current Mondeo on the EUCD platform is only a year older than the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia on Epsilon II. (2007 vs. 2008). The brand new Land Rover Evoque is also built on EUCD. It is a hot and much […]
It is quite a stretch to say GM is on track to “pay back the government early” when it is based on a few analysts “projection” of a future stock price.
Historically, it has been a long long time since any GM […]
Maybe because Ford is not a loser-deadbeat company like GM?
Maybe because Ford realized that cutting off their former Volvo customers at the knees was not a good business practice, while the usual short-sighted […]
