Saab Inside No. 11 is here!

Last week, the printed edition of Saab Inside No. 11 went on sale. Meanwhile, the workshops and service centers in Germany, Switzerland and Austria should be supplied. And for Saab riders, there's an additional reason to head for the nearest base.

Saab Inside Number 11 is here!
Saab Inside No. 11 is here!

Because with the Saab Inside came as a supplement also the updated directory of Saab workshops in Lichtenstein, Germany and the Alpine countries. In practical, handy format, the perfect companion that fits into any glove compartment. Sorted by postal code you can quickly find the right partner, if there should be a mishap with the Swedish car.

Surprising: On a map you can see the distribution of the Orio partners. Apart from a northern postcode area, the workshop density is still high. Higher, at least, than with other exotic brands that still produce vehicles.

Saab Inside No. 11 is available at the workshops

The issue no. 11 of the Saab Inside is an indication of where the customer magazine of Orio Deutschland GmbH will evolve in the future. Offensive support for the service bases, which can use every tailwind. The first issue was the portraits of three partners, others will follow in issue 12. In addition, the booklet to 100% Saab is pure and should remain so in the future. Other activities of the Orio AB will, so I have heard it at least, will not be found in the magazine in the future.

Issue no. 11 is in my opinion the most consistent book. By the great, by the Orio Germany subsidized edition, the printed version is accessible to every friend of the brand. Some readers, unfortunately not all, may have received or are still receiving mail. In the first direct mailing for a long time, they are invited to the workshop visit - to pick up the print version of the Saab Inside.

It would be nice if they would also make an inspection, review, or the upcoming wheel change. Because the Saab workshop network needs our solidarity, if we want to continue to drive in the future with a car from Trollhättan.

Anyone who needs more reasons to stop by at the next Saab / Orio base will find tangible facts in my next article. Stay tuned!

    Pity…. I was in Frankfurt yesterday because my Check Engine ad was on. Unfortunately the booklet was not available yet.

    Last week, my just-acquired "new" second Saab for inspection, review, wheel changes and a few minor repairs to "my" one Saab-Orio partner, today the other and Saab specialist in the north, was just a few extra requests to retrofit from me. Two booklets Saab Inside have already been secured! 🙂 In a few weeks, then the convertible with wheel change, preparation, service and a few nice "refinements" turn. My Saabs come here - in HH and SH - only these two Saab partners and I have so far only had the very best experience. Supernett, committed, competent and inexpensive!

    I wonder where in the north should be the thin workshop density? In the extreme north-west or east perhaps? In HH and SH, in my opinion, more of a stronghold is still to be found. Well, I'll find out later in the supplement. Very nice, that on the notebook of the SC is shown in the beautiful sapphire blue metallic (international: fusion blue). For my 2007 as a new car ordered convertible, I had chosen this color - it was just beautiful, with blue top! And, at least as a convertible, extremely rare. Unfortunately, this color was soon discontinued in D, the land of colorful black and silver friends 🙁.

    All the good trip and many pleasant and successful visits to the Saab partners!

    With the friendly picked up! Great booklet, thank you 🙂

    I'm curious, must anyway pick up the Combi from the service in Himberg

    The booklet is very interesting and well done! The two workshop books are already cut out and are in the glove compartments of my two beautiful sisters! 🙂 And, as already thought, the "white spot" lies in the north-east (MV and BRB). With the exception of Berlin, Rostock (the nice team of H & B) and complaints there is unfortunately no friend to find.

    On the other hand, I find the workshop density in Switzerland absolutely impressive !! Speaks for a likewise high Saab density and loyalty. A high on the Swiss! 🙂 We wanted to plan a few days family visit in French-speaking Switzerland on Lake Geneva anyway, either this year or next, on the way to the South of France - and of course, you can also refuel E85 in F at the same price. At Agrola in the German-speaking part of Switzerland this is supposed to happen. Is that correct? And what about the current price? Would be great if one of the many Swiss readers to a little info for me would have. Thanks in advance! 🙂

      If you were to roll out Switzerland flat, it would be twice as large and the workshop density halved 😉

      In comparison with the flat MV or BRB but still heavenly. This connection between Switzerland and SAAB fascinates me. Homologated tuning parts and software upgrades / performance upgrades for new cars while maintaining the full SAAB guarantee did not come from the Swedes themselves (such as Maptun), but from the mountains (deer) ...

      Unfortunately, I know little about this cooperation and connection. When exactly established?
      And how and why did Confederates and trolls come together so closely? ?
      With which models did it start and what did they do after the Swiss intervention compared to the original? ? ?

      This story is part of SAAB history and I would gobble it up and read it at least three times ...

        Yes, a very nice idea, I would be interested too! What does the blogger think about such a topic? 🙂 And true, you have to take into account the longer journeys up the mountain and back down to the respective friends with ... 😉

        Perhaps also one of the friendly Swiss has an info for me to E 85 at Agrola (see above)? I would be happy! 🙂

          Maybe the red deer will come up with the idea to work on their own history, to publish online and to provide the blog and the press with material and information?

          It can not and does not always do everything the blog ...

          And maybe the deer will have other (good) news for SAAB drivers on the occasion?
          Perhaps you have considered something for the future, so that the business model SAAB long lasting?
          If so, they would be well advised to communicate that actively too ...

            Hirsch has earned his money for a long time with other brands. But keeps Saab loyalty, and also provides performance improvement for older vehicles that have not been on the list for some time. If her condition is good!
            The story of Hirsch Performance may write who is closer, certainly not me.

          • 29. March 2019 at 12: 28 PM

            The money with the other brands is then probably earned B to B?

            Quasi secret and under the radar of the public? Anyway, everything on the old website is still SAAB and I've been wondering how this works for years. In so far thanks for the AW and info from earlier ...

            It is commendable that SAAB still keeps its faith.

          • 29. March 2019 at 12: 34 PM

            No. In Switzerland quite public. Googling something helps, please for "Hirsch Ruckstuhl" or "Kloten". Then come nice brands from Swabia and Italy.

          • 29. March 2019 at 1: 28 PM

            Hirsch has a huge Mercedes center and Lamborghini. Previously also Volvo. But I do not think so now.

          • 29. March 2019 at 3: 53 PM

            @ Franken Troll & Tom.

            Thank you for that information. I'm smarter now. But also a little sobered ...
            I do not have to elaborate. But it's nice that Hirsch still remains close to us on the edge of his own and new business fields. After all!

      Got the magazine right now, there are actually many god Orio partners, but how many take Saab seriously and live for Saab? There are also some Orio partners in Austria, but Himberg is the best in Eastern Austria, knows the best and lives and loves Saab. In the other Saab is just a Randprodkut, as one is more likely to be persuaded to buy another car
