I think the problem is their price-tag...if they were cheaper I would think they could compete with Subaru, since they come w/ AWD.

Who would seriously consider buying them? I mean their nice cars and all, but wayyy overpriced for what they are. Like powerfreak mentioned, if they were cheaper then they would be alot more popular, but for the kind of money that they call for you can easily step into a lexus or infiniti and be much better off.

The dealer I ordered my Camaro from is also a Saab dealer...she said they were actually selling pretty good...go figure. Of coarse, they're also a Hummer dealer, so maybe they're only selling good compared to the Hummers that are sitting on the lot.

I never had any interest in them...I don't care for luxury or upper class cars either.

*Don't know if saab is luxury or what it is..just not my kind of car*

V8 is totally un-Saab. Almost all SAAB engines are inlines and turbo'd inlines.
