Warranty Coverage Suspended for Saabs Sold in North America

There’s talk of a chance of revival but from what we can tell, the only way that Saab is coming back is if some other carmaker buys only the brand rights and starts from scratch. Saab North America seems to think the end is near as well, because they’ve issued a statement saying that all new Vehicles sold starting December 19 will not come with any sort of warranty whatsoever.
"Warranty coverage is suspended indefinitely for all new Saab vehicles sold. During this period, the warranty booklet must be removed from the owner information packet. For any vehicle sold or leased during this period, the customer should be affirmatively advised that the vehicle does not carry any warranty coverage and is sold 'as is,' " says Saab Cars North America in a statement issued to its dealers, according to Automotive News. "Owners should be advised to keep receipts of all related warranty work done or services performed until further notice."

Through November, Saab has sold 5,340 new cars in the US, covered by a 4-year, 50,000-mile warranty that included free scheduled maintenance for three years or 36,000 miles.

Saab Cars North America will no longer process payment of all claims, including but not limited to:

• New-car warranties
• Powertrain warranties
• Emission warranties
• Parts warranty
• Safety belts, airbags
• Towing
• Recalls and campaigns
• Certified pre-owned coverage
• Goodwill
• No charge maintenance

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
