Our C900's were built to a standard, so price wasn't really much of an issue since if you wanted a vehicle of a certain quality you had to pay the asking price. So parts and build quality are skimped back to the barest minimum required to meet various country's safety standards and nothing more. The same still applies today in 2005, but it's watered down a lot with the generic makers (including GM) producing 'prestige' cars too. Toyata is the main one we see here in Australia with their 'Lexus' branding. Perhaps GM should re-focus Saab on producing cars built to a high standard again since that's where Saab's traditional market base is.
