    Vehicle : Vectra cdti estate

    Trim : Get a

    Engine : Dirty diesel

    Year : 2006

    Default did you know ?????

    was talking to IAN T earlier and he spoke about something that surprised me a little, basicaly that GM are the owner's of opel - vauxhall - saab etc, they were once also a shareholder in FHI or as we know it...........SUBARU

    well now this got me thinking so i starterd to look into it a bit and found this....

    The Saab 9-2X was a Saab-branded automobile assembled in Japan at the Ota-Gunma plant by Fuji Heavy Industries and based on the Subaru Impreza, but with a modified body, suspension, and interior. Because of this the 9-2X earned the nickname "Saabaru" before it was released. A smaller car based on the next generation Opel Astra named Saab 9-1 will come in 2009.
    The car is actually badged as a 92X, but Saab consistently advertises it as the 9-2X.
    Saab planned to offer the 9-2X to a limited public, starting in July of 2004, for the 2005 model year, as a 4-door station wagon only. Europe did not receive the 9-2X as it was for the North American market only. Initial sales were slower than expected, with only 410 sold within the first two months; however, incentives and promotions helped drive sales in May 2005 alone to beat the combined sales of the year up until that point. The dissolution of the GM/Subaru relationship in 2005 spelled the end of this model. Production ended with the 2006 model year, and there was no return of the 9-2X for 2007.



    any way here is the pic
