You'll take a big hit but you will feel better. Tell as many people as you can about your bad experience. There's no room in today's marketplace for an upscale car company who treats it's loyal customers like crap. Saab's once proud reputation continues to decline and you can be sure nobody in charge over there has a clue as to why. The sooner Saab is put out of its misery the better for all it unwitting customers.
