We received a press info from Beherman Group regarding the warranty issues of Saab owners in the Benelux area:
CLARITY ON WARRANTY SAAB AND ORIGINAL SPARE PARTS IN BENELUX
The Saab Importer for Belgium, the Grand-Duchy of Luxemburg and The Netherlands and its network of distributors offer an alternative for the factory warranty.
Bornem/Utrecht – The request for bankruptcy of Saab Automobile, on December 19th, has put an end to the 24 months of official factory warranty. The administrators at Saab have not yet made a decision on the possible continuation of this warranty. In the meantime, the Saab Benelux Importer, in collaboration with its network in Belgium, the Grand-Duchy of Luxemburg and The Netherlands have developed an alternative. The large availability of original spare parts is an important element in this context. For the Saab drivers there will not be a lot of changes regarding warranty and maintenance, even in spite of the bankruptcy of Saab.
The Beherman Group, the official Saab Importer for Benelux, has developed, in collaboration with its official distribution network composed of 71 service points, an alternative concept to compensate for the disappearance of the factory warranty. This alternative plan is only valid for new cars that were sold during the last 24 months and through the official network of Saab dealers in Belgium, The Grand-Duchy of Luxemburg and the Netherlands. This initiative puts an end to the uncertain period for Saab drivers having bought a new Saab recently.
The decision of the Beherman Group and its network to develop an alternative plan for the warranty is also good news for all those Saab lovers that are looking to buy a new Saab (or a company car). At this moment there are only about 70 cars left in Belgium, The Grand-Duchy of Luxemburg and The Netherlands. These cars, together with the +/- 3.500 new Saabs that were sold in these three countries over the last two years can benefit from this alternative plan for the warranty.
Saab Spare parts
As from today, the customer can contact his official Repairer Saab in Benelux again for warranty repairs at his recently bought car. The car will be repaired with original Saab spare parts. There are no problems regarding supply of spare parts. Not today, not in the future, since Saab Parts, the division responsible for the worldwide distribution of Saab parts, was not involved in the bankruptcy of Saab Automobile.
Philippe Mertens, Director Saab Benelux: “Thanks to the alternative plan for the warranty, the large availability of original spare parts and the fidelity of the network, the Saab drivers know they will be able to get the usual level of service and that their Saab, today and in the future, will be kept in perfect condition.”
