If the 9-3 is a Golf > competitor overseas, and the 9-5 competes with the Passat, why isn't that > so here? The 9-3 is ABSOLUTELLY no cempetitor with the GOLF in Holland.....it's a competitor with the Passat, like in America. The 9-5 has no VW competitor, it can be competed with the AUDI A6.. In Europe (esspecially in Holland) VW cars are being marked up FAR to much...so I don't think Saab is to expensive in America, but VW is FAR too expensive in Europe....
