In response to the tanked 9-3 sales in the US in February, Saab USA have begun offering cars through vending machines in college campuses at a buck-a-horse.
Ok, not quite, but……
Incentives on 2006 models:
9-3 Sedan – $4,000 customer cash on the 2.0T and $5,000 customer cash on the Aero.
9-3 SportCombi – $6,000 customer cash on the 2.0T and $7,500 customer cash on the Aero (I’m very close to breaking my no-expletives rule at this point….)
9-3 Convertible – $6,000 customer cash
These deals are also subject to a $1,000 loyalty bonus for current Saab owners.
But that’s not all, if you don’t want to go the customer cash option you can opt for 1.9% financing if you’re approved (Are you breathing? Good. Sign here….)
There’s also customer cash offers on the rest of the 2006 Saab range:
Saab 9-2x – $5,000 customer cash
Saab 9-5 Sedan – $8,000 customer cash (#^$!)
Saab 9-5 SportCombi – $8,000 customer cash
Saab 9-7x – $6,000 customer cash
The 9-5 and 9-7x offers are also subject to a $2,000 loyalty bonus if you’re already a Saab owner. Yikes!!!!
There’s some 2007 offers as well, but obviously these aren’t as generous as the 2006 clearance incentives. They’re mostly hovering at $1,500 customer cash for the 9-3 and 9-5 range and $3,000 for the 9-7x.
There’s loyalty cash available on 2007 models as well and if you want to go the lease option then there’s 0% financing available.
Great for the customers right now, but I’ve got a bad feeling about all this….
