The Saab Club of North America is getting planning for the Saab Owners' Convention 2012. We need your help! Tell us what kind of events you want to see and we will do our best to incorporate as many of your ideas as possible. Survey links have been e-mailed to past attendees and there are links available on our Web site if you did not receive one. We’re looking for attendee opinions as well as non-attendee opinions. We can learn as much from those who did not attend as those who were able to join us.
As the climate of Saab is ever changing, uncertainty of what support (if any) we will be getting in the form of a parts tent, test drives, and other normal factory supplied support. At the time of this writing, there are five interested parties getting ready to make a bid for Saab in its entirety. We hope there is a successful bid and a quick recovery for the brand.
What we can do in the meantime is to make our club an informational hub for Saab owners. If a buyer for Saab in its entirety is not found, we will need to work together to keep the cars we love running into the future. Our hope is that the Saab Club of North America can be a facilitator to that goal. Suggestions from the membership as to how to achieve this would be appreciated and you can contact me directly at the contact page.
We know that some dealerships and repair facilities have decided to no longer service Saab vehicles, so if you know of a shop that needs to be taken off our listings in NINES and the Web sites, please pass along that information to Ian Glenday via our contact page. If you have a great shop that is currently servicing your vehicle, pass along that info as well. These are uncertain times in Saab history for sure, but together we’ll be able to continue to drive enjoy our Saabs for many years to come!
President, Saab Club of North America
