    Default Saab? Schmaab

    Got a courtesy car while my Vectra repaired- a SAAB 9-3 Tid Sport ( allegedly )

    Same engine as mine but what a load of old b0ll0cks the car is- soft squashy seats,( on a 05 reg!! ) 15" alloys, etc, plasticky cabin, dated looks

    Only good thing is the clever handbrake design that disappears into the centre console

    Absolute tripe....

    And £25k new? What are they on

    Why oh why do people pay £5k more than a Vectra for a worse car with a snobby badge?

    Don't think so- I'd rather shove wasps up my @rse

    Hrumph!!

    Mike

    Snobbery....

    Why would someone pay £150 for a T-Shirt
    People pay £100k over the odds for a snobby post code.... and it goes on...

    Badges are very important... as Matt knows !!

    SAABs have some nice wheels but nothing bigger than 17" So i've looked no further. Quite like the spoilers too and wondered inf they fit a Vec.

    Default Schmaab

    Just that I was supposed to get a like for like car and I was initially happy to get a Saab as i thought they were more prestigious but when i drove it it was a barge.

    Unless it was a friday afternoon job but it's only done 13k miles...

    i say you were lucky to get a saab as a replacement car, at least it is close to the size of a vec.

    you could've ended up with a fiesta like all did!! albeit that the fiesta was from a bodyshop garage and not vauxhall, but still

    Thing is I got a car through MSL who charge the cost to the other party's insurance and give me like for like car

    so by rights I should have got a cdti 150 veccy

    Not a cdti 120 swedish bouncy castle

    Rather have jumped up and down on ulrika jonnsson for 3 days- would be more fun

    Interesting you say this Mike. My dealer has now become a Saab (and Vx) dealer - noticed the same thing with couple of other Vx dealers I've passed around the country. They got in a 9-3 and 9-5 Sportswagon so I had a look at it. Didn't like it. Unnecessarily big buttons on the dash for some things, bits looked dated etc. - other bits looked okay. Haven't driven one but both have gone off my shortlist of potential next car.
