This is my second posting based on a blog post from David Legitt from Just Auto. He’s had a Saab BioPower test vehicle for the last week. He wrote an intro piece on it earlier in the week and like other testers I’ve read, was a little embarassed by the huge BioPower lettering on the side of it.
But it’s a testimony to the car that he’s been more than happy to overcome the initial ill-feeling and come to enjoy it, even though it’s a 1.8 BioPower and he’s having to run it on regular gasoline.
I’m getting severely tempted to look for an excuse to drive to Norwich and fill it up with plant food. ‘Eats, shoots and leaves’ is the title of a popular book about the use and misuse of apostrophes. Someone at Saab has come up with a play on that term to describe its flex-cars: eats leaves – and shoots. I quite liked that one.
I’d highly recommend you click through and read it. It’s got his thoughts on car-makers and integrity as well as a focus on the Saab afterwards.
