    ZzzzzZzzzzzZzzzzzZzzzz.... Ugly as hell, meh interior, quality only a small notch above typical GM crap. Gonna sell as well as Saab has for the past years. In other words, Hummer will continue to out sell Saab as a brand.

    I know. Who cares? Just cause they have a different owner doesn't mean that most American buyers know that or even care. It sure hasn't made them look decent or brought anything that'll make them sell. Even Spyker has said that it'll likely fail.

    #1, not everyone cares about america. Saab is a european brand

    #2, they apparently have new smaller models in the pipeline, lets see what they can do with that, Spyker shouldn't be affraid to try daring things with this brand.

    Interior looks cheap like it always has been. Was never a fan of my boss' 9-3. Looked fairly nice but felt cheap. Everything was thin from the plastics to the fabrics and leather.

    It was great when he almost walked out on buying it cause they didn't wanna sell it to him for cash. They kept telling him he didn't wanna do that and that they had to have him fill out shit for financing. In the end he paid cash for it. Then they tried to say he wasn't covered by the warranty because he didn't finance it.
