Don't worry: GM dealers selling Saabs are still fiddling while Rome is burning. Most just can't deviate from "Let's rip everyone, get right to four squares" mode. A few dealers have begun to discount these vehicles heavily. A few New England dealers advertised new 2008 9-5s for between $22.9 and 24.9k. While I have always liked the 9-5, though I never owned one, I became wary once the company set one ... Read More
Just bought a 2006 Saab. Has the nav system, but no DVD came with the car. Are all DVD's compatible. For example, can I buy a 2005, 2006, 2007, or 2008 DVD and it will work. I plan on buying at ebay, is that a wise move?
This Saab 9-5 is available for $15,000 off the sticker: New 2007 Saab 9-5 Aero: $42,915 MSRP 5 Speed Manual Sedan 4 Cylinder Turbo 2 wheel drive - front Fusion Blue, VIN YS3EH45G673510947 Barry's Middletown, Inc. 1-866-503-6403 He has three more available at less 10 to 12K. Keep in mind that the discount is more like $ 16200 compared to the 2008 model as the manual transmission was made a "no ... Read More
My Saab dealer is quoting me 4.35% APR on a 39 month lease; does this sound right or are they marking things up?
I am also about to lease a 2008 9-5. Let me give you some quick tips. The $2500 cash to dealer, and the current Saab $1000 bonus cash are NOT valid on leases. In April, Saab did have a $1000 lease bonus. I am waiting for that to come back. I am hoping for a July 4th sale of some kind. Also - The only way to lease a Saab (if ... Read More
Just speculating here on Saab CPOs which go for six years or 100K from date of service. I think it's correct to say that right now Saab will only CPO cars that are 2004 or newer. But suppose that an '03 Saab had been turned in at the end of its lease, been CPOed (good for 6 years or 100K) and resold. Then suppose the second owner in 2008 trades it ... Read More
I am looking at replacing our 99V70 with a new (or slightly used) wagon - either a Saab 9.5 or another Volvo. Volvo is preferred at the moment mainly because Saab has little product in my area and overpriced. I am in Canada and looking at importing the Saab from US as the MSRP is close to $8k less for new. But - having owned a 2001 Saab 9.5 sedan, and ... Read More
My husband and I purchased a 2001 SAAB 9.5 new in Oct. 2001, drawn to the auto for it's safety rating. In Oct. 2005 I received a letter from SAAB informing me that the IDM was defective on the SAAB 9.5's. The letter stated what to watch for and to immediately stop driving the car and get service if the engine started firing on only 3 cylinders. They said I would ... Read More
If the turbo was not the problem...we have a 2001 9.5 six cylinder..there was a recall on the IDM's in the 9.5, although SAAB has said it didn't relate to the 6 cylinder, both the IDM's in my 9.5 went out...one in Nov 2005 shortly after receiving the written notification that the IDM's were defective (SAAB paid for the replacement). They refused to replace the other IDM saying it wasn't defective, ... Read More
GM seems to be doing everything it can to discourage people from buying SAABs, at least the 9-5, the replacement for which has been delayed several times. Is there any other 1998 vehicle still on sale as a 2008 model?
After calling Saab, emails, then finally Detroit (who returned with my answer promptly), I have learned that there is no Saab European delivery for 2008. None, nada, zero! Just when Money Magazine, or Smart Money runs a big article on the best of MB, Audi, BMW, Volvo and Saab claiming Saab has the best program, cancelled for 2008.
Jeff, I spoke with the SAAB European Delivery Department today and found out the pricing for European delivery of the 2008 models will be available around October 1st. Also, Financing options are available once the vehicle has been built and the dealership has the Certificate of Origin. This usually occurs at least two weeks prior to your scheduled European delivery date. In regard to the SAAB loyalty incentive, due to the ... Read More
I own a 2003 Saab 9-5 3.0 V6. It was a demo that I bought off the showroom floor with about 8k miles on it. I'm very happy with the car overall - no major problems so far. I've always serviced it at the dealer. Change the oil every 6 mos or 5k miles at the dealer (synthetic). Currently have about 51k miles on the car. Don't drive a lot, obviously. ... Read More
RIP Saab. GM has finally removed the feeding tube.
