GM Offers Saab Owners a Little Incentive

It seems that General Motors is feeling a little guilty for how things went down with Saab, but just a little guilty. GM will be contacting 70,000 plus Saab owners and offering them the “GM Saab private offer” to help quell any negative feelings left over after the closing of Saab’s doors.

The incentives won’t be huge, but may be just enough to convince some consumers to replace their old Saab with a new GM product. The Saab private offer listed on the GM website is as follows:

Beginning January 4, 2012 and continuing through February 29, 2012, select General Motors SAAB customers are eligible for the SAAB Private Offer off the purchase or lease of new vehicles. Refer to program 12-40CR for official guidelines and vehicle eligibility.

SAAB Private Offer:
• $250 Chevy Equinox, Sonic, & Volt, GMC Terrain, & Buick Verano
• $500 all other Buick, Chevy and GMC vehicles
• $1,000 all Cadillacs, Chevy Corvette, Avalanche, Silverado, and GMC Sierra

We will have to wait and see if these meager offerings are enough to swing some favor in the Generals direction.

    Either GM doesn't get it, or they are incredibly heartless. I grew up in GM's- I took my driver's test in an '85 Buick Electra, even. I eventually found SAAB, and, for the first time in my life, I felt connected to the car I drove. Since then, I 've found a whole community that is as passionate about SAAB as I am. I couldn't have imagined a more fun, stylish, efficient, solid car than my SAAB 9-3 convertible. Yet GM chops them off at the knees at every turn, whether it be from short- sightedness, shortterm thing , incompetance, or a combination of the above. To think I would EVER buy a GM again again is folly.
