Thanks Hans for your support!! Most people today are not concerned with the individual at risk. They side with the establishment. What Saab are really saying is that a life of a disabled customer does not matter - but their questionable liability is paramount in this new age of litigation for damages. Yet another example of Americanisation lowering the value of service. A decent company would consider fitting overide switches in all future cars, and they would attempt to satisfy their customers. I agree the best answer might be to guy another brand - however, disabilities impost restrictions such as accessability, requirement of 2 door large car, price due to limited income etc. which is one of the reasons I like Saab cars. Life can be difficult enough keeping ones independance without such blinkerred attitudes from the establishement.
