Saab Automobile Parts North America (SPNA), marks first anniversary with enhanced warranty, expanded Service Center network and best-ever availability.
• SPNA offers industry leading 24 month / 24,000 limited warranty on replacement parts and labor for repairs using Saab OE Parts at Saab Official Service Center locations.
• SPNA continues to expand its Official Service Center (OSC) network, creating an infrastructure to ensure Saab Owners have access to Saab Genuine Parts, Accessories and Service for many years to come.
• As SPNA celebrates one year anniversary, Saab parts availability is at historic high levels.
Saab Automobile Parts North America recently celebrated its one year anniversary by announcing the addition of limited warranty coverage on labor costs, for a term of 24 months/ 24,000 miles. This added coverage complements the existing 24 month/ 24,000 mile coverage that is standard on all OE Saab Genuine Parts and Accessories the company sells.
“Our industry leading limited warranty coverage on parts and labor is an important addition to the products and services offered to Saab owners and only available through the Saab Service Network,” said Tim Colbeck, President and CEO of SPNA. “With 24 months and 24,000 miles of coverage on genuine replacement parts and service labor, there is a compelling reason to use Saab OE Parts and Service versus aftermarket imitations. No aftermarket parts or service supplier has Saab OE parts quality nor stands behind Saab parts like we do.”
The company continues to expand its service network, adding official Service Centers across the country. The company recently added Kelley Sales & Service in Springfield, VT and Hubbard Wood’s Motors in Winnetka, IL. Another recent addition is Tom’s Truck Center in Garden Grove, CA. Tom’s will be a west coast parts distribution partner, to improve availability of Saab parts in the important California market. Availability of Saab parts is back to historic high levels, and the warehouse facilities are stocked; ensuring OE Saab Genuine Parts and Accessories are available to Saab owners and the service network quickly and efficiently.
If you’re in need of Saab Genuine Parts and Accessories, many of the Saab Official Service Centers in the network operate and offer a web based inventory and ordering solution for Saab owners, with the capability of drop shipping direct to the consumer.

“The company has built an infrastructure for the future. It’s great that we have been able to announce this new program and launch several others, like Saab Secure, that provide added support to Saab owners and the Saab service network. We want to keep Saab cars and owners on the road well into the future” Colbeck concluded.
