It is something like an inventory of the current Saab situation in Germany. The German Saab Parts subsidiary in Eschborn has put an up-to-date directory of all dealers participating in the spring campaign online. A good idea, because in previous campaigns there was sometimes some frustration due to the lack of transparency.
But when you look through the list, there are still one or two surprises. Logically, the “lighthouses” among the Saab dealers are there. Starting up in Kiel, via Bonn, Berlin, Bamberg, Leinfelden, Osnabrück, Paderborn and Vienenburg. But some names are missing, while others appear that surprise me.
Example Hamburg. In the Hanseatic city, four companies take part, and with one or the other name I would not have expected. But a traditional Saab partner from the surrounding area of Hamburg is missing, which is unfortunate. Or Frankfurt. The former Saab center Frankfurt is not there, the Frankfurt area is a big vacuum. Frankfurt organizes its own action, which is incomprehensible. The nearest participating partner is the Saab Zentrum Mainz.
I would welcome a dealer list also for future actions. Each dealer has the opportunity to participate, and a directory saves us as a customer some disappointment, if the company does not want to know anything about the special offer. Saab partners, who understand Saab as a business model and live it, are supported by it. Which is just. Because these companies show their colors and invest time and money. They deserve our support.
