1960 Saab 93F

1960 Saab 93F

Wasn’t it just a few days ago that General Motors was in negotiations with yet another company to take over the Saab brand? This morning GM announced that it’s not going to happen, and Saab, just like Saturn and Pontiac, will begin the process of shutting down. GM says warranties will be honored, and parts and service will continue to be provided to Saab owners around the world.

    GOOD GOING, GM!!!!! ANOTHER DIVISION GONE!!! FIRST OLDSMOBILE,THEN PONTIAC, AND NOW SAAB!!! I’M SURE THAT BUICK IS NOT FAR BEHIND!!! AND KNOWING YOU AS I DO, CADILLAC & CHEVROLET MIGHT ALSO GO INTO THE GROUND EVENTUALLY!!!!
    AND AS TO WHY YOU ARE DYING: YOU’VE FORGOTTEN EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT THE CAR BUSINESS!!!

  • When GM decided to shut down the Saab Brand GM assure that parts and service will continue to be provided. But now it is getting difficult to get the parts & service of this car.

    Have GM shutdown providing parts & service? If not please lets know where should we get it. specifies the dealer, website, etc.

      Current Saab dealerships should be providing the same service they always have. If yours is a dealership which maybe will be discontinuing selling the brand, that may be why parts and service don’t seem up to snuff. The new Saab ownership has its own website: saabusa.com. Go there where you’ll find a spot to sign in as an owner, and perhaps find the help you need.

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for the saab website.

  • that is y i always prefer the company have regular & stability in market, & also not go for higher model or unique in case or they close to issuing new models than we always face problem to get its part & accessories.

  • Saab is always looked as a classic and vintage vehicle. It has kept its glory and according to me the designs of Saab gave an astonishing looks of a complete vintage vehicle.

    The move taken by GM will definitely benefit the old owners of this vehicle.

  • I do not think that the Saab brand will become extinct. With GM taking over this brand I am confident that this brand will survive. I like the old vehicles of this brand and with GM taking over will definitely add some glory to it.

    that sounds really good that GM is interested to make live our Old Car Industry. i hope we can have some old car models again in our current time. i am waiting for it. 🙂
