SAAB photo. Saab 9-5 II sports car on the road.

Jürg was traveling with his family on holiday in the direction of Denmark. Of course in his Saab 9-5 sports car when there was an unexpected meeting of different Saab generations. A rare Saab 9-5 II sports car was on a van, also on the way through Germany. Logical that one stalks there, the right moment from fits, and then shoots the pictures. Thanks Jürg!

SAAB service Kiel. Review.

The Saab dealer network has never been particularly densely woven and the last few years have made it even wider. It is gratifying that there are still dedicated dealers who have recognized their opportunity in the niche and live the Saab. At the top of the north is Saab-Service-Kiel, the Saab base of the Lafrentz family. It is exciting to learn how Saab customers assess the Kiel. Especially if they are not from northern Germany. But from further away. In our case from Austria.

SAAB talc. Where the Saab beats heart.

Saab partners do not have it easy. The last years have been turbulent and I take my hat off to any partner who has brought his company through the hard times. Every dealer has his or her own approach to master the current situation. Some Saab partners actively trade with used Saabs and do good business. They travel long distances, buy interesting vehicles from all over Europe or import Saabs from the USA. The customers thank it. For example, there is the Saab Center in Mainz, which was able to sell some vehicles through the blog last year.

Rearview mirror. Speculative bubble.

On Wednesday, the Saab auction ended in Sweden. Already in the run-up there was great interest and even on the auction day came here with mails to questions. I answered the least of them.

Or simply not want to see the risk, if you buy a never introduced in Europe model like the Saab 9-4x. No, this is a blog. No Saab helpdesk.
