Now here’s a purchase story and a half.
Earlier I posted an entry on incentives to be announced July 3rd and how there were some incentives posted in error last weekend on the Saab USA site?
Well, Dave’s one smart cookie. He took a screenshot of the bucked up incentives and printed it. I’ll let him tell the story:
I must be the luckiest new SAAB owner there is. I had called my local dealer and found out that they had a beautiful Ice Blue 60th anniversary convertible in stock. I went out there after they had closed last Thursday and fell in love.
I had noticed on the SAAB site that the incentives were $3,000 + $1,000 for returning SAAB owners for 07’s. Well, I was back on the site on Friday to see that 07 convertibles were $6,000 + $1,000 off!
I was lucky enough to print this off as I was just blown away. Well, when I arrived at my dealer that evening, I had found out that they had several people call in about what was found on SAAB USA’s site. I was told they were actually for any new 06 stock and that it had been corrected.
Well, I decided that it was not my time to buy and left. I knew my dealer had no control over SAAB USA’s site and was just going to keep my 03 9-3 SS for a while longer. Well, 30 min later, I receive a call from my salesman and SAAB agreed to honor what was on the site since I had printed it off.
I am now the proud, lucky and very happy owner of my third SAAB and first SAAB convertible. As you can see in the pics, I have the 20th anniversary convertible wheels instead of the 60th. I think they are beautiful.
As for the incentives that were on the site, I believe they were as follows:
9-3 SS $4,000 off + $1,000 for SAAB owner
9-3 SC $3,000 + $1,000
9-3 CVT $6,000 + $1,000
9-5 S & SC $8,000 + $2,000
9-7X $4,500 + $2,000 (if I am not mistaken)
Here’s Dave’s new bargain, photographed below. Looks magnificent. Congratulations!!
