I think that (As far as selling new Saabs) they need to market them beter and PROVE they are worth what you pay for them. I mean who wouldn't have slight reservations about paying $40,000 for a car with a 4 cyl. Engine?!? Also, I think they need to take those features that make Saab...unique and market them to death. Like the dead locking system, now I know that there are other european cars that have this too but I had to scour the internet to find out what the dead locking system even was...or the ignition between the seats, I mean that scares people away but honestly, how many of you still find it annoying (Assuming you drive a Saab and have driven it for more than a week)I mean I thought that having the ignition where it was was...silly but I didn't have any major reservations against it, and once I found out the benefits of it (Locks transmission vs steering wheel etc) I thought "Thats brilliant!" Or the fact that Saabs have a rediculously low theft rate (At least in the US form what I understand) Saab needs some help so they don't disappear, but not too much help, I like being able to buy a 3 year old car that cost as much as a 5+ year old car from an other manufacturer... Maybe they sould steal Arby's old slogan, Saabs are different, different is good, I don't know...
