However, until this matter is decided in favour of Trollhatten, GM can go whistle for my Saab business. I have asked the dealer to stop looking. FWIW. Okay, if I bought a new 9-5 now, it would be as much a Saab as a new car can be today. I am thinking ahead, along all those years during which the marque evaporates, leaving an ever-nastier taste in the mouth regarding parts and maintenance. Any who are inclined to knock this decision should reflect that they don't know the details of my life. Beyond trivial stuff, a few of us have to rely on pro servicing. I'd want it to be well cared for -- without breaking the bank. I am hoping this will prove to be one of those groundless scares. The dealer claimed ignorance of the news, so I suggested he talk to Saab UK in hopes of getting the pure news. We'll see. -- Andrew Stephenson
