Just wanted to pass along to the Saab faithful that as of last week most former Saab dealers that maintained an ongoing escrow account with Saab Parts NA, both the old and newly formed versions of the company, are now able to once again get many back-ordered parts. KEYS ARE EITHER IN OR ARE ON THE WAY!! As I have maintained a good relationship with AL, the long time parts manager at VOB Saab in Rockville, MD over the years he has always kept me abreast of the latest developments with Saab parts and the company overall. His knowledge of Saab parts and their applications are second to none.
I was able to order a key for my 2004 9-5 Aero (though of course the laser cutter in Allentown went down for a few days and needed to be fixed but the blanks were at least in stock) as well as get some additional parts that made it over on one of the first cargo ships from Sweden.
Anyway, the parts pipeline seems to be starting to flow again and while not all items are going to show up, many of the most needed will. Body panels, engine and electrical items etc.
Hope this helps!
