With all that has been reported in the last couple of days, its been hard to think of a good time to tell people about the great programs that Saab is offering at this moment. Before anyone gets any crazy thinking of (this must have something to do with what has been written about in the last two days) these programs came out Oct 1st and are the same as any other manufacturer at this time of year when it comes to the previous model year inventory. So, here are the programs. On all of the Saab 9-3s there is a $6000 credit for new and existing customers and if you have a 1995 or newer Saab you get a further $2000 in savings for loyalty. That’s an $8000 savings on a 2011 Saab 9-3 and with a starting price for Canada of $36100 that would make the price now at $28100, which blows me away to think of a brand new Saab for under $30000 Canadian, that’s Ford Fusion pricing. When we look at the 2011 SAAB 9-5 the story gets better. The 9-5 has an $8000 credit for new and existing customers and also has the extra $2000 in savings for loyalty if you have a 1995 or newer SAAB, that’s $10,000 in savings. These programs are offered by the manufacturer, see your closest Canadian retailer for any further questions about available models and options. Stock is getting a little low as far as color packages and such, but the dealer network will work together to try to find exactly what you’re looking for as we are still stocked fairly well.
An example of one of the great deals sits in front of me. A 2011 Saab 9-3 with a 6 speed transmission with comfort package, Onstar and 17 inch alloy wheels. The comfort package gives you a power passenger seat, headlamp washers, auto dimming mirror with compass and universal garage door opener. MSRP on this vehicle is $39765.00 which some would argue is priced too high, I’m not going to get into that because it’s been exhausted in previous threads, but with the October Sales Program, the price is now set at $31,765.00 which is incredible value for a car that is just so much fun to drive and incredibly attractive and to me seems timeless. Canada pricing is a little different then the US and other markets for that matter, but to give you an idea of the value in that price, right now you can in that price range buy a Mini Cooper S with a starting price of just under $29,000, heck the Fiat 500c Lounge is listed for $24,495 Canadian.
