Great news for Canadian Saab owners and dealers. Effective today, IFS and SCNA will restart parts shipments to Canada. This will be handled the same way as the recently announced restart of the US Parts program and we should see parts start to flow nicely again very soon. I would say that as dealers have just now received the information, give them a little time to get everything set up. Great news is hard to come by and this is a step in the right direction.
In response to a question brought up on this thread, I emailed Tim Colbeck yesterday and got this response last night:
Jason, Just yesterday, a bulletin went out announcing restart of parts sales in Canada. We are about to restart shipping of parts from Sweden, first on backorders. The new parts company hopefully will be formed soon to ensure perpetual source of parts. So the parts news is getting better. Tim
I hope that answers the question clearly enough. A lot of work has gone into restoring the parts chain and a lot more work is ongoing. I can assure you all that Tim is working just as hard now as he always has been and things will get better on the parts front very shortly.
