    Saab: Time to call it a day...

    To those who've purchased the new 9-5 are truly getting a gem. They've become such a rare sighting that it's like seeing an exotic driving down the road. Visually, the new 9-5 is simply stunning...it's really quite a sight.

    "which is larger, more luxurious, and more expensive"
    how can you prepare customer base for that when everybody else is downsizing ??? Remember Saabaru 9-2x? It could have been the way out.

    The problem with a lack of sales is that Saab has no budget for advertising. I've not seen a single television, newspaper or magazine ad for Saab. Most of the American public assumes that Saab went out of business when GM nearly shut it down. Saab need aggressive marketing to gain brand recognition.

    Las night I test drove a used 2010 Saab 9-5. Iwas ready to buy. However, not knowing much about the car I knew it was prudent to 1st get reviews and opinions. 2 garags told me they like the cars but to stay away. In a couple of years I might have serious issues with parts and servicing. With dwindling dealers, I might have to wait for parts to come in from overseas. I was extremely disappointed as I really did want the car. Unfortunately Saab has done itself an extremem disservice by not promoting at all. Most pople don't even know that it still exists. TOO BAD!!! The car drove and felt great and I now know hy it wa such a great deal. I hope things improve with Saab

    Saab needs to do what Fiat is currently doing. They must offer extremely attractive leasing rates and low financing purchase rates. I think this marketing plan is far more important for Saab's survival than for Fiat. No one wants to chance buying a vehicle from a company that might not be in business in a few years not without some great incentives from the company.
