Another April sale…..

Whilst I’m talking 9-3 SportCombis….

I get to read every comment that’s written at this site. They’re emailed to me. So I get a flowing picture of what is sometimes an ongoing conversation here at TS.

If you don’t read every comment here, then there’s a chance you don’t know much about a guy here named ‘Nevitz’. He’s a comparative recent addition to the TS public and notable for being the only current 9-2x owner I know of who frequents these pages.

For the moment anyway. His email to me this morning will tell you the story and I don’t think he’ll mind if I share it with you…

OK, so I wanted to tell somebody, but didn’t think it appropriate to post it as a comment. Since my friends and family, especially the wife, are tired of me talking about Saabs, I figured I could tell someone who could relate to a similar feeling of elation.

I just came from my local dealer and… *drumroll* … signed for my NEW CAR!

They didn’t have it in stock, so it’s being driven here to Jacksonville from a dealer in Miami, about 360 miles away. That makes me sore, because they at first said it would be trucked here. To add to it, they told me the entire time it would cost me NOTHING extra — and then they said, “Oh by the way, since you’ve already committed to it and its being sent, that’ll be an extra $400 please!” I bucked, explained that I could easily take my business directly to the other dealer without spending that, to which they did the right thing and took care of it-of course they wanted the unit sold to count for April sales figures!

Ok, now for the gooey part:
2007 Saab 9-3 2.0T SportCombi
Fusion Blue
Sentronic Automatic
Power Moon Roof
60th Anniversary Edition!

I’m working Monday, and my sales dude will be delivering it to my work, and hauling away the junker of a 9-2x with him (lol.. I really did love that car..).

So it’s official. Whilst we were a pseudo-dual Saab family, with my 9-2x and the wife’s 9-5, I can now say with gusto that I own two that were bred in Trollhattan! How proud am I? Like that of a newly expecting father today, and (Lord willing) a delightful father on Monday! We shall soon see.

I’m not much of a religious man, but I shall recite something like this as I drift into dreamy land. “Lord, please let the men driving my car cross-state be professional, responsible, sober men. And Lord, please protect my new baby from any of your glorious creatures, like that of a deer. And dear Lord, may thou deliver me if it shall be a lemon. Oh, and please protect all those around me too. Thanks!”

Congratulations on the new addition to the family, Nevitz.

I know you’re going to love it.


And there’s only a few more days until those April sales figures are announced. Fingers crossed, y’all.

  1. Gongrats!

    Hope you will enjoy it!

    Just one thing, is it not a bit sneaky of the dealer to try to charge you $400 extra? I think that there is quite a few out there who would pay but remain angry, resulting in a bad first impression already before receiving the car… I say shame on them!

  2. You’re not the only one, Dave. I heard from another via email this morning.

    Welcome! Despite my misgivings about the model you’re pobably driving what will go down in history as the most reliable Saab ever!

    I just wish they’d done justice to the interior. Not that it’s bad, but that it’s fundamentally unchanged from the donor. But this is old ground.

  3. 6:20 PM Eastern time.

    I GOT IT!

    Not detailed, but gassed up! Shame that I am working until 8:00 PM. After that, look out everyone!

    It truely is an amazing car. I’ll have to snap some pics soon.

    Thanks everyone!
