More than 6 years ago, the last Saab 9-5 in Trollhättan ran off the tapes. And with the cessation of production began a story that no one had expected.
I still remember the following months. Saab dealers had fresh leasing vehicles on the streets and looked with fear to the residual values. What would happen if, in 2 - 3 years, the Saabs would come back to the dealer yards? Few saw the prices in the basement and drew a gloomy picture.
It came differently, as we know. The 9-5 NG was suddenly the last Saab to grow in desires, and suddenly a residual king from Trollhättan came. The market was upside down.
In the course of the first market hysteria it came to excesses. Fans bought pre-production 2012 vehicles without knowing what they were doing. The sudden awakening followed months later, when the supposed production car was not serviceable. The excesses are history, the market has stabilized at a high level.
And he serves almost all customer requirements. If you are looking for a 9-5 NG with low mileage in the year-old car status, you can find it. But will be asked accordingly to the cash. Here come 3 exception offers from Germany and Switzerland.

Important after the purchase: The check in a Saab workshop. Rarely are offered vehicles on the current software level. This is mainly because only authorized Saab partners can perform the updates via the paid access. The subject is neglected, often the cars are old Firmware versions on road. An update protects against costly defects, such as the navigation device.
