The primary purpose of this website is to provide Saab enthusiasts with some information and a place where you/we can mutually enjoy all the good things that make up being a Saab owner.
As far as that’s concerned, I think the site has done OK. I’m proud of the quality of the articles that have been published here over the last two-plus years. I’m also pleased to note that there’s been an increase in Saab’s presence on the web in the last couple of years as well. I’ve been scouring the web for Saab info since early 2005 and there’s certainly a lot more places to look now than there was back then.
One of the things I’m interested in getting a feel for is the value that this site, or other Saab enthusiast sites or forums, may have played in helping people research a new car decision.
I’d never expect that a site like this plays a fundamental part in informing a purchase decision, but there’s an outside chance that either TS, SaabCentral, TSN, TSL, SaabHistory or one of the many others has fostered some brand loyalty or helped someone to understand the Saab marque a little better as they’re going through that process.
This is not supposed to be a backslapping mission. But if you’ve found this site or one of the other Saab resources on the web to be helpful in a purchase decision, then please share how. I’d certainly like to know if the site is helping people in this way, and I don’t think any of the Saab enthusiast website operators would mind Saab knowing about it either.
If you’re a dealer who’s referred clients to one of the many Saab enthusiast sites out there, use a nom-de-blog and let us know why and how it worked out.
The comments section is open, so please feel free to share your experience.
