The day was full of work from “real life”, because bloggers also have jobs and families. But there still have to be a few lines ... Lars has brought door handles for the Saab 9-5 I from Sweden. As is known, the series are made of inexpensive plastic and do not do justice to the Saab.
The alternative is leather, and whether it's a real way to improve the interior, we clarify in the next few days. Door handles, however, are only trifles, the austerity of GM owed.
However, the Americans could not touch the basic values of Saab. A Saab is a safe car and the best way to get your loved ones safely from A to B. The wife of friend and co-blogger Mark has seen today with her new Saab 9-3 how well a Saab does in everyday life and how it asserts itself against a tractor-trailer. Fortunately, everything went well, the Saab has fulfilled its mission! As macabre as it sounds, we have our first real-life safety test on the blog.
The Saab goes to Dresden for mobile forum and will be repaired there. This allows us to assess the delivery capability of body panels in the involuntary self-test.
The Saab gets repaired and comes back on the road. But with Opel it seems to go south. In Detroit 600 has been written off millions of euros on the goodwill of Rüsselsheimer. Apparently you do not want to give Opel a chance anymore, that reminds of Saab.
We are not the only ones to compare the situation with the events in Trollhättan. The Weltexpress sees the situation quite soberly and analyzes the future of Opel - also in retrospect on Saab - as raven-black. A read after work.
