The rumors on Saabs United website is that there is a potential American investor who will step in and save Saab. If this is true, then perhaps the brand will survive against everyone's expectations.

Commented On: First 2011 Saab 9-4Xs Now At Dealers, Can It Turn The Tide?

The new 9-4X will sell as poorly as the new 9-5. There is simply no advertising to make people aware of the vehicle. Plus, it's too expensive and doesn't get good gas mileage. If Saab survives 18 months, then the new 9-3 will help with sales but that a big if.

Pang Da will not leave Saab at the altar. They seem serious about investing in Saab. The real problem lies in getting the Chinese government to approve the deal. This I think will not happen.

Now that the EIB has refused to loan Saab more money, I think Saab is done. The deal to seel Saab property was dependent upon the EIB loan and won't go through. I don't think it can get any worse unless Victor Mueller has some of his magic left.

@Michael Akers - there are plenty of 9-5s sitting on car lots right now. Buying a car is the best way to help Saab as the money goes to them. It will help your dealer too. Plus, you'll get an awesome car.

The problem with a lack of sales is that Saab has no budget for advertising. I've not seen a single television, newspaper or magazine ad for Saab. Most of the American public assumes that Saab went out of business when GM nearly shut it down. Saab need aggressive marketing to gain brand recognition.

It certainly looks like the beginning of the end for Saab. They need cash now and the deal with Pang Da and Youngman is not expected to gain approval by the Chinese government. Even if the government approves the deal, it will be at lease three months until Saab sees any money. They're toast.

Saab has not announced when production will begin again. The 9-4X is being built in Mexico by GM. Over 44 companies/individuals have taken Saab to a debt repayment enforcement agency to force Saab to pay over $3 million dollars in unpaid bills. The deal between Saab, Pang Da and Youngman is not expected to gain the approval by the Chinese government. Foreign (non-Swedish) suppliers are balking at sending more parts until they are properly paid. Saab has no cash and sales are tanking. Vladimir Antonov decided to withdraw his offer to buy the Saab plant and surrounding properties. If this is not an “ICU” situation, I don’t know what is. Trust me, I want Saab to succeed. I own two Saabs and have owned a Saab since 1988. I love their c

Another great review. I am the owner of a 2010 Saab 9-5 and love it - except for the fuel economy. However, Saab is so huring for cash that I believe bankruptcy is right around the corner. They are currently not producing cars due to the cash crunch. This will leave me, and any prospective buyers, without a warranty, free service or parts. Think long and hard when considering buying a new Saab. You don't want an albatross sitting in your garage.
