  4. I can't remember the last time I saw a Saab...Or a new Volvo ( older ones all the time )
    It's like everyone has switched to Subaru.

  5. Th police in Aspen used to drive Saabs. I recall wanting a Saab 920 Turbo something awful, and like Anonymous at 10:50, I too continue to believe in that world. There are still a remarkable number of older Saabs and Volvos here in the Colorado Rockies - along with, yes, many Outbacks.

    1. We are in Texas and my wife bought an Outback in December. Very different vehicle for this part of America.( There are more Subaru dealerships in New Zealand than all of Texas) We love it! I am looking at trading in my vehicle for a Forester.

  6. The police in Falls Church, Virginia, used to drive Volvos but I understand they were not loved.

    1. Well, the Volvos, of course. Don't know when they switched to something else. But one of the best known local car dealers was located in Falls Church and he sold Volvos and Subarus. The owner was also lieutenant governor of Virginia, U.S. Congressman and is presently ambassador to Switzerland.

  7. I've never owned a Saab, but have always admired them. I live in rural PA and our area boasts the oldest continuously owned Saab dealership in the country - Kunkle Motors. American Pickers featured this dealership on their show because the owner had stowed antiques and collectibles into an old mill on the property for six decades. As a result, it attracted Swedes who were looking for old Saab parts. According to the History Channel's report, although Saab was made in Sweden, it became more popular in America, hence the reason the Swedes come here for parts. Anyone looking for parts might want to do the same.

  8. My Saab is currently in the shop, and we are deciding whether it is worth it to fix it (again). The comments here are food for thought...my first car was a Saab too!
