Our good friend Petteri, sent word that he recently received an offer from Saab in Finland.
They offer a small spring inspection for only 30 euro. It includes a check of tires,
wipers, lights, etc.
But that is not all!
AND they also replace any worn out Griffin hood/trunk emblems!
Having replaced the emblems both on my 9000 as well as my dad’s 9-5, I have come to regard those things as if they are made out of gold. Expensive buggers. €30 is close to what I paid for one emblem alone. Add to that a spring inspection and you have good value for money. It is an offer you cannot refuse. (unless you, like Petteri and I, already have new emblems installed)
We are unable to find any information about this on saab.fi, but hopefully something will show up there soon.
In the meantime, here are two photographs of the information received so far. Note: There is some confusion about whom this applies to. OG9-5 only or also 9-3 owners?
Sauli Naski, the aftersales manager of Saab Automobile Finland got in touch with us and provided some clarifications.
The Spring check offer is valid for all Saab 9-3 and 9-5 MY98-08 (so Classic 9-5, Classic 9-3 and 9-3). This direct mail was also sent to all private Saab owners of such cars.
