2008 Saab 9-3 2.0t Sedan 4-door 2.0l on 2040-cars

Year:2008 Mileage:83502
Location:

Weston, Massachusetts, United States

Weston, Massachusetts, United States

I am the second owner of this car, I bought it used from a Certified Preowned dealership back in the fall of 2010 with 49,000 miles on it. I've put 34,502 miles on it since to bring us to a grand total of 83,502 miles. Its a great car and has proven to be very reliable. I got into an accident a few years ago and got the car fully repaired. It broke down on me late this summer, but I had all the necessary repairs done and it is back in great physical and running order. (Dents and such are listed in the appropriate section)
This car gets GREAT highway and rural MPG, which is well above the listed stats Saab gave them. I find it easy to get 30+ MPG on the highway and generally 26-28 MPG in rural areas. City estimates are 18 MPG. If you don't believe me check out some online forums, they often boast great highway MPG! I have always gotten the oil changed regularly, but given that it takes synthetic oil, oil changes are far in-between (but a little more pricy). Please note that it does have power seats, but only on the drivers side. A few features unique to Saab is that the ignition is located in the central console and it has a feature that turns all the inside lights off besides the speedometer, very handy during nighttime driving. This is a very reliable, efficient, sporty looking and driving car with enough Swedish quirkiness to set you apart from the regular sport sedans.

NEVS announces 200 layoffs as it says Saab restart will 'take time'

Fri, 26 Sep 2014

For a fleeting moment a few weeks ago, the news from Saab-owner National Electric Vehicle Sweden appeared almost positive. The company had its reorganization plan approved (a day after it was denied), and the automaker was actually showing a real, running vehicle, albeit one with a top speed of 75 miles per hour. But those tiny crumbs of potential goodness have been swept away because NEVS has announced layoffs of as many as 200 factory employees in September "due to lack of work."
Workers probably shouldn't get too eager to return to the factory either, because company's "decision to re-start production will be further delayed" by an unspecified amount of time, NEVS says in a press release. To begin assembling cars again, the company needs to find long-term funding and a new majority owner. Those seem like two very steep hurdles for the embattled automaker to clear.
Despite not producing cars since May, NEVS still claims it's negotiating with a new owner, possibly Mahindra, but according to Reuters, the Swedish company owes about 400 million kronor ($56 million) to creditors. According to its layoff announcement, getting rid of these workers is one step in the business' reorganization plan to be presented on October 8. Scroll down to read its full release.

2014 Saab 9-3 officially relaunched, reborn

Thu, 05 Dec 2013

Saab is officially building cars again. Production of the 9-3 Sedan has kicked back off in Trollhättan, Sweden, and the first example is reportedly earmarked for the company's museum. Initial sales are targeted for China, although Swedish customers will also be able to buy new Saabs built in their country right away, too. It isn't immediately clear if the model will be available in the rest of Europe, let alone in North America.
The initial run of 9-3s will be powered by a 220-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder before an electric model joins the range next year. There are no Biopower or XWD all-wheel-drive models presently in production. And while the lion's share of the 2014 9-3 is a carryover from the pre-bankruptcy car, there are some changes, including a new anti-whiplash seat system and a "greater number of non-GM parts," reports SaabsUnited.
"I am very proud of the dedication and the focus that NEVS management and employees have demonstrated over the year that has passed since we became owners of the plant in Trollhättan, and who have made this possible. Swedish expertise along with Japanese technology around batteries and new lightweight materials and our Chinese group's focus on green technology is our strength for the future," said Kai Johan Jiang, the founder of Saab's parent company, National Electric Vehicle Sweden.

Saab US bankruptcy plan gets legal green-light

Thu, 18 Jul 2013

It feels utterly bizarre that we're still talking about Saab, but Reuters is reporting that the bankrupt Swedish manufacturer's American arm has gotten approval from the US Bankruptcy Court to liquidate its assets and pay back creditors. As part of the plan, secured creditors like Ally Financial will receive full repayment. Unsecured creditors, consisting of those affected by abandoned leases and contracts will get anywhere from 25 to 82 percent of their money back.
There are currently $77 million in unsecured claims, according to Reuters, but that number doesn't include claims from former Saab dealers. Naturally, the entire affair is full of lawyers and legalese. A trust formed on the Saab side will be negotiating with creditors and their affiliates in an attempt to reduce claims against Saab. This sounds like the start of a long and sordid affair...
