Automotive forums like SaabWorld are frequently used for researching a brand, a car purchase or trying to fix a problem on your own car. There are many dedicated members who go out of their way to assist new members with problems, provide documentation and guidance and basically make the Saab community a better place.
We do all of this without the goal of any financials gains. We are not asking for any donations or other financial assistance because the site is financially secure. Many other forums owned by large companies (SaabCentral, SaabLink, SaabScene) are the total opposite where the only goal is to make a profit from member content and contributions. SaabWorld is not like that. It is owned, operated and managed by Saab enthusiasts just like you. That's what a enthusiast forum should be.
Instead of financial support, we are asking all visitors and new members who sign up asking for help to return the favor. Take a look through the forums and see if you can provide any input or help others. You don't have to be a technical expert in repairing and troubleshooting Saabs to help. Sometimes just discussing is enough to point someone in the right direction. And it helps knowing you're not alone in fixing a problem.

Read an interesting Article or news story? All the members and moderators who put a lot of work and time into SaabWorld sometimes just like to know their work helped someone. Click the Like link in any post or thank them by writing a few lines with some feedback. We don't need a pat on the back or special recognition but it motivates everyone when they know their hard work is appreciated.
Our sincere thanks go out to everyone who helped others or simply discuss the brand and hang out on SaabWorld to make this a better, well-respected and interesting site to visit for many years to come. So think about sharing your knowledge, stories, experiences and anything else here on SaabWorld and make this even a better place. SaabWorld is a global site and we love to hear from everyone whose native language is not English as well. Don't be shy and afraid of not being a complete master of the language. It's the thoughts and efforts that count.
Thanks for reading this and we look forward to hearing from you!
