    End of the line for NEVS. It's all the European parts manufacturers who are out the cash... along with the Swedish government (AKA taxpayers). No technology besides what was left over from 10 years...

    From what I gather the creeky bushings is a common ailment and likely to return even after repaired. Is lubricating the bushings a do-it-yourself job? I hate to think returning to the mechanic for...

    I'm tired of paying to remount my snow tires and my all-seasons are wearing down. This spring sounds like the perfect time for new performance tires -- on new rims. :)

    I would put the $42K towards a nice new car... like, you know from this century... complete with an entire dealer network for warranty support at no extra charge. What a concept! This NEVS thing is...

    Finally a dose of reality for this NEVS thread. I'm guessing China is a ripe market for an 10+ year old Saab design with a giant battery inside? We'll see. Meanwhile for Saab owners located...

    Yes of course it's a real Saab. As much a Saab as anything Saab built the last 20 years. The real problem is how GM markets its brands that causes questions about the 9-7X and 9-2X in the first...

    There is no good news here for any current Saab owner unless you're one in China. From the start there has been an otherworldly oddity to this entire NEVS venture and it is becoming more and more...

    This whole situation seems very much half-baked, and the explanations for why NEVS is proceeding with the 9-3 aren't much better. Any way you cut it this car is not a Saab.

    Confused... how could GM "own" the NG 9-5 but not also "own" the NG 9-3, both of them engineered by GM under their Saab subsidiary? If anything, the NG 9-5 is less "owned" by GM as they never...

    Anyone care to speculate why NEVS is focused upon the 9-3 for its first production model? Is this tacit affirmation that the NG 9-5 wasn't quite ready for the marketplace when Spyker charged forward...

    It's a shame Spyker never got to change the logo back to the monochromatic airplane. Our sticker issues would be over and the historical ties with the lame GM era would have been severed too.

    Mine was caused by the sway bar bushings. I just had it fixed earlier this week. Let's see how long it stays quiet.

    This along with the Castroita design proves Spyker was reversing GM's (really) dumb move that eliminated hatchbacks from the SAAB line up. Gray's design is truly inspired and I'm sure the over-sized...

    I think it's a nice car too, but without clear title -- and the seller expecting $500 inside 48 hours -- this has Train Wreck written all over it.

    "Born from Jets" was a complete disaster for SAAB. It really highlighted the superficiality of GM's brand point-of-difference (i.e. "badge engineering"), SAAB = Opel + $20K.

    I didn't know Muller had already made moves to phase-out the griffin logo. It was rather gaudy compared to other European marks but SAAB cultivated a very different brand image regardless. Mercedes...
