    I know carmakers are suffering and I know Saab are taking a beating in various places around the world. But this is just…….just……….stabworthy. In 2007, Saab Australia sold 1862 vehicles and things were looking up. That year, we had anniversary models and with a 2008 vehicle waiting in the...

    Forget Saab stuff from me today - it’s Grand Final day. This is the final contest for 2008, our championship, our Superbowl - the final time we’ll get to see the greatest game on earth at the highest level for this year. Australian Rules Football started in Melbourne back in the mid 1800s as...

    The Motor Report is a relatively new Australian motoring website and they’ve recently completed their first comparison road test. It’s the Saab TTiD Aero vs the Ford Mondeo TDCi. Yes, you read that correctly. Let’s be honest here, shall we? I don’t think TMR deliberately thought let’s...

    Australian Car Advice writer, Alborz, recently sent me a heads-up via Facebook about their latest review - the 2008 Saab 9-5. Finally, I’ve found a use for Facebook! But I digress…. In the note, he was almost apologetic about the fact they felt the need to criticise the 9-5 as they did...

    One of my mates in Sydney going by the name of Hawkeye, has just taken delivery of his 2008 Saab 9-3 BioPower. He picked it up last Friday and I don’t think he’s stopped smiling since. I first met Hawkeye over dinner last year when I went to pick up my 900 Aero in Sydney. At the time he had...

    Last weekend I wrote about an Australian review of the Ice Experience, specifically to do with their drive in the 9-3 Aero XWD and the Turbo X. At the time I wrote about it, the article wasn’t available online, so I posted a scanned version of it. Thanks to Turbin (again), we now have a link...

    There’s been two worthwhile writeups here in Australia in the last few days. —— The first Saab “review” - it’s not really a vehicle review but you’ll get what I mean, comes from CarsGuide. Unfortunately I can’t see it on their website yet, so a link to an easy-to-read article isn’t...

    It’s been good to note some active advertising here in Australia recently. Saab have a pretty small budget for this stuff, but it seems they’re spending it in a noticeable way. They’ve been running ads on TV here featuring the Lynx Yellow convertible and on my arrival in Sydney last month (on...

    You all know I’ve been pretty hot on the Turbo X. I know there’s been some hesitation and reticence out there because on paper, the stats just don’t tell the story of the drive. I heard last week from a guy here in Australia who’s recently ordered one. He’s put his money down in order to...

    Most of you won’t remember the name Tonr, but you might remember this pic from the Saab Pride of Ownership competition (finalists named in a few days!) Tony emailed me to give me some info on aircraft/vehicle manufacturers, but he also gave me an update on this 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector. It...

    Occasionally a review comes along and you get the distinct impression that this is the first time that reviewer has driven a Saab. This may or may not be the case here, but what comes through is a fresh enthusiasm for what is a really great car. And what made it even more enjoyable for me is...

    It’s time, once again, for another entry in the Saab Pride of Ownership competition. This competition is brought to you with the assistance of Elkparts, where (unfortunately) they don’t sell rain. Today’s entry comes from Turbin, in Victoria, right here in Australia…. —— It is the last...

    It’s time for another Saab Pride of Ownership entry, this one from Australia’s rather harsh outback. Simon I lives in Perth on Australia’s west coast, and took a trip north around Christmas. I’ll let him expand on the place and the car. After you’ve seen it, perhaps you could come up with...

    It’s time for another entry in the Saab Pride of Ownership competition, brought to you by Trollhattan Saab and the good people at Elkparts. I’d buy my groceries there if I could There’s some great prizes to be won and entries close December 31st. Tony R’s story was documented here back in...

    Maybe that headline’s the tiniest bit exaggerated, but then again maybe it isn’t. But it’s the first BioPower sale I’ve heard about. It’s one thing for Australia to join the BioPower evolution, but it’d be little more than a warm-hearted gesture if no-one took up the technology. Thankfully...

    Well, when someone here in the US refers to something as Victorian, it usually means that it’s much too conservative and a bit uptight. Well, this Victorian doesn’t fit that bill. For sure. Great stuff from Mugley. Share This

    Carpoint have published their review of the 2008 Saab 9-3. Our reviewer is Melissa McCormick and I was eagerly awaiting this one as I drove one of the stages of the Australian launch for this car with Melissa, in a TiD SportCombi. If there’s one word to describe this review, it’s...

    You’ve seen these photos before. I first published them a little while ago, but I didn’t have the story to go with them. Since then, Brendan has put the story together for publication in the Saab Car Club of Australia’s magazine - have I ever mentioned that it’s just about the best car club...

    UPDATED below - is Holden becoming Saab? —— Today is media day for the Australian International Motor Show, being held in Sydney. I attended last year and saw the Aero-X in person, but wasn’t able to attend this year. Nevertheless, TS is more than adequately represented by Richo, my...
