It seems that all dealers selling Saabs will have to tell their customers soon that their cars will no longer be taken care of, as after the North American announcement, Australia has followed suit today. The subsidiary from Down Under’s announcement affects some 800 owners, according to CarAdvice - 138 so far this year, 14 in 2010 and 663 in 2009.
“The warranty is a manufacturer’s warranty provided by Saab Automobile AB, not Saab Cars Australia,” said Saab Cars Australia managing director Stephen Nicholls. “It is no longer valid.”

“Saab Australia is not filing for bankruptcy. [Following last night’s announcement] we will now review our overheads and review the business. We are still planning to carry on supplying parts to our dealers for the foreseeable future.”
