After a successful first year of trading, Saab Parts UK is announcing a new line to help owners and independent repairers of older Saabs. Looking through the Saab back catalogue, there are more than 70,000 Saabs on UK roads which are maturing into Saab “classics”.
Included in the classic group is the original 900 series (already referred to by many as the 900 classic, made from 1979 to 1993), the 9000 hatch and CD saloon (from 1985-1997), the 900 series 2 (from 1994-1998), and the 9-3 (generation 1 from 1998 – 2003).
Corin Richards, Managing Director of Saab Parts UK, said:
“Recognising the loyalty and enthusiasm many owners share for the brand, we at Saab Parts want to reward ownership of older cars. From 1st May a number of genuine Saab parts and accessories for classic models are being permanently re-priced, with typical reductions of 50%. And with Saab original parts engineered to rigorous standards, all come with the reassurance of a 2 year warranty.”
Starting with an initial range covering external items like body panels, side mirrors, alloy wheels, interior items like radios and steering wheels, various engine, suspension, electrical and transmission items, the Saab Classic parts are being automatically re-priced on the Saab ordering system. Over the next few months more parts are expected to be added to the Classic range.
Owners and independent repairers of classic Saabs can find out more details by contacting their local Authorised Saab Service Centre. With an extensive national network of UK Authorised Service Centres to source genuine Saab parts and service from, finding your nearest is simply a case of using the Service Centre Locator facility on the Saab web-site (visit www.saabparts.com).

As the club notifies members directly of the latest campaigns and helps to reduce the cost of Saab ownership, it pays to join up.
