It's been like that for months. Again and again we get emails from Saab drivers who would like to offer their used Saab here. So far, except for one case involving a complete collection, I have refused to make the blog a marketplace.
Selling a used Saab can be difficult at times. A Saab sells best within the community, which is undisputed. The Swedes don't stand long with committed Saab partners, and in the Saab-strong areas in the north, a Saab sells better than here in the south.
For dealers with foreign brands, on the other hand, many good Saab wheels are the corners, and at Mobile.de or Autoscout24.de some attractive offers for unexplainable reasons seem unsellable. Saab classics and quite young Saabs with low mileage are wanted. In between, it looks less good, there is currently helplessness.
Our question for readers is the following: Should we set up a marketplace to offer Saab drivers an opportunity to sell? Should this service also be available for dealers? Or should the blog remain a blog? A news source and not more?
Our advertisers donate for one good cause. All income generated by the blog goes to the University Clinic Erlangen, where it supports the work of Ward 43. Mark and I blog for free. The budget for the server, the flight and fuel costs for the reports come from our pockets. We could possibly imagine that we publish advertisements for used Saab, but against a small donation that goes to our charity partner. How do our readers see it?
We ask for opinions! Advertisements on the blog or rather with the well-known online portals? Multiple answers are possible because it is also about the question of whether commercial providers are allowed to advertise.
