I was at the dealership today, picking up a part for my 88 SPG, and I started talking with one of the sales people there. They said that they've sold almost as many 9-2X's as 9-3's, and more than they've sold 9-5's this month. I was kinda surprised, but I'm glad that people are liking them :)

I was in to pick up a part for my 9000 and asked about the 9-2X. I was told that they're not moving very well at all. It doesn't help that there is a Subaru dealer next door, which is strangely owned by the same people who own the Saab dealer.

Castor Troy, where do you live?

There are no more 9-5s left so I can believe that part. But 9-2Xs outselling 9-3s? That would be a bad thing for Saab.

I think he was blowing smoke up your http://www.gaming4life.com/images/Funny/donkey.jpg

So more 9-2x's than 9-3's but less 9-2x's than 9-5's. So that could mean the sales were:

9-3': 2
9-2x: 1
9-5: 0

It's easy to manipulate numbers into words to sway either way. Who else took statistics?

i didnt get numbers for the 9-3 or 9-5, but he said they'd sold 5 9-2x's this month. which seems pretty good for a town of 100,000 people.....

That is pretty good, I guess. I have yeat to see one on the road here. Keep seeing those damn Scions everywhere instead... people here are stupid. Although, having been across the country, I haven't seen as many Saabs anywhere else. Of course, haven't been up to New England in a while...

I've seen 6 on the road so far, this includes CT and Mass. About twice as many on lots. Subarus are very popular around here so this really doesn't help matters for Saab. What it comes down to is does someone get a 9-2X Aero (forget the Vector :roll: ) or a somewhat loaded 05 Legacy Turbo. I've seen a lot more Legacys on the roads so things don't look too good.

Good point. I'd much rather have a legacy wagon than either the WRX or 9-2X. Or 9-3 for that matter, if I were buying new.

Where's that damn Sportwagon? :)

...and as of a couple hours ago, they're discounted $3,200 (up from $2,000 last week)!

Since my last post on this topic I haven't seen a single one that wasn't standing at the dealer.

you sure it wasn't two or three people driving around all day?

i find that very hard to believe. that would be about 20% of the national sales

Haven't seen a single one in London, Ontario, except at the dealer. And there are a lot of Saabs here. 7 on my street alone (if you count the 2 we own :wink: )

Other Saabs, not 9-2x's, haven't seen a 9-2x off the lot yet.
