But this drives home the point - a niche car in a niche market - New Hampshire. CT also isn't that much different that northern New England - if anything, the car should sell better here because there are more people who can afford the car down down here. Regarding the 4WD and AWD - marketing is it exactly. Saab abd Volvo built their marketshares how? But stressing safety and winter performance. Every car is safe now, SUVs are perceived as tanks, and the winter performance angle has been stolen away by other makes - Saab just hasn't kept up. This is reality and what the kind of feedback I get when I talk to other folks about Saabs. I agree with you guys, not arguing at all, just letting you know why my friends and co-workers do NOT consider Saabs when they buy their cars.
