If those new Jaguars counted as Saab's I'd of seen dozens of them in Willow Grove, PA area - but alas the new 9-5's are few and between down these parts. I see the Lausch's 10' every now and again in Reading, PA.... but aside that one - zilch this month!

Even if you count those rapides as saabs, then today I woulda seen 2 more. Astons got a winner in its hands. I'm seeing them everywhere.

I think when you live in Bucks County Pa you get one for every 10 acres of land you occupy - at least that's what it seems. You can not drive by Doylestown or New Hope area w/out seeing 1 or 3 of them.... yuppies.

Finally saw one in LA, test driving a customer's gorgeous LeMans blue '97 9k Aero - I tried to pull up alongside and thumps-up him, but he was a clueless Buick driving person who probably just thought it looked neat.... then he cut me off.... 8(

Nice catch Drew. I'm still sighting-less down here in OC.

I did see a silver '86 c900 vert today though. Passed her on the 5 down by me. Same car I've seen a couple times. Pretty sure the owner is a French expat.

I've seen one in St. Louis, ironically near our home. Our sole dealer is at best.....

Am I reading the E-Bay link below properly? Upper $27K for a new 9-5 at a dealer in New Jersey?

I talked to someone I know at a cookout yesterday... they own a 02 9-3 vert..... they had some work done at the local saab dealership (Just Saab) & they were told by the dealership they had their best month ever in sales.

Neither of us have seen a new 9-5 on the road yet thought.......

Saw TWO new Fiat 500s driving around yesterday.


Still not a single sighting of a new 9-5.

Same here, seeing a lot of 500s, still no new 9-5. With both of my county's dealers now closed, I doubt I'll see one in the future unless it's in LA.

Just saw my first new 9-5 driving around today! Well, technically it was at a stoplight. Looked like an Aero, black in color...looked really good too. Gave a thumbs-up as I drove by.

Spotted one today on 130 in Nashua. It's a loaner from Tracy Banks in Concord. Looked good!

I seen 3 or 4. A Fjord it looked like, a glacier, carbon and white. Mostly in Westchester County, NY.

Just want Saab to get their shit together. It sucks lately all the rumors. Some bad ones from the GM side.

We need those new test 9-3's from Europe to start running around the states to pique interest here. Not easy losing sales because of bad press from car rags

Haven't seen one yet. But then I've been working an RFP for about 20 hours a day for the past two months. Haven't left the house.
