It's true. Except for the handful of well-done stores, or those co-located with other premium brands, many SAAB outlets were afterthoughts or placed wherever GM wanted footprint presence without much regard for brand identity.|
The biggest challenge remains the vehicles themselves. Pragmatic Scandinavian solidity gave way to the "tinniness" that's since become a GM hallmark. For the past decade, SAABs have always felt to be less than the sum of their parts. (Perhaps an appropriate metaphor for GM itself)?
