That's it. Saab's are considered a little off the beaten path. In some areas, they are somewhat unusual to see. For that reason the resale and lease return values are lower. Smart folks like to take advantage of this by buying a 2 or 3 year old car for a great price. >real reason why these cars are not selling, such as reliability or problems >which did not show up in the 2002 edition of Consumer Reports? No. There are no problems with these cars. Repairs are not as cheap as a more common car like a Honda or Nissan, IMHO. But it's the same for most European cars... and even the Japanese cars are a little expensive when it comes to dealer parts. Bob
