I was very surprised to see Saab at the local San Diego Auto Show. Saab the company wasn't actually there, but Saabs were on display thanks to the local dealer, Marvin K Brown, my old employer, and all around great folks.
They had a 2010 9-5 V-6, and a 2011 9-5 four cylinder. They also had a 9-3 Aero vert marked down to $33k, and a base 9-3 sedan, marked down to about $23k IIRC.
I had heard that the 2011 were available with wood and the four. The four looks exactly like the direct injection turbos in other GM cars and the sticker says sourced in America.
The "wood" is HIDEOUS. I don't understand how a company that produced some of the finest genuine wood dashes of all time in previous 9-5s could allow such a travesty. It's hideous molded plastic fake wood more that would even look cheap in a Pontiac.
Come'on Saab, wake up!
