Subject: unfair criticisms?????


There seems to be a debate running over Saab quality,particuarly now GM are involved,mostly in the negative,I'd be interested to hear the opinion of anyone who has driven 900(classics)and any new models 93's particuarly-when I bought my 1986 900 Turbo the guy I bought it from told me that Saab used to take 40 hours to build a car and are now down to 24,25 hours-I guess this could be taken as meaningless but the point he thought he was making was that build quality was suffering-I'm really tempted to buy a new Saab,not least for the advances made in general in car construction but am generally happy with the "evergreen" 900.Is it really fair to say that quality is on a downward trend-I thought maunfacturing was all about quality and delivery,considering the 65% domination of the 4-door convertible market(UK sales only I think)I hardly see a problem there-obviously a NG like this will naturally be dominated by the more problematic sides of Saab ownership that's no real unbiased cross section then is it?(notwithstanding the posts in praise-though maybe bias there too). So lets hear what you have to say..............if it's constructive!!
