Saab down 57% and GM group down 54%, Ford down 48%, Chrysler down 44%.
Put in that overall disastrous context the SAAB result is not way out of line..
What does that mean ...

Everyone is having a tough time:

Honda reported decreased sales for its models manufactured in Alabama for the month of February.

Sales for the Ridgeline fell to 1,106 down 67.4 percent from the 3,532 sold in February 2008.

For the year, Ridgeline sales fell to 2,307 – down more than 60 percent from the 5,779 sold in 2008.

Sales for the Odyssey decreased to 6,692, a 40 percent drop from the 11,690 the Japanese automaker reported for the minivan in February 2008.

The Odyssey’s year-to-date sales slipped to 12,091, which represents a 40.8 percent decrease from the 20,436 sold in 2009.

The Pilot also saw a slip in sales falling to 6,678, down 46 percent from the 12,881 of the SUVs sold in February of 2008.

Overall sales for the entire Honda line dropped 34.9 percent for the month.
_______________
and
_______________
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Toyota Motor Corp. on Tuesday reported its U.S. sales fell 39.8% to 109,583 cars and trucks in February. Sales of cars slid 36.3% last month to 64,956 while truck sales slumped 44.4% to 44,627.

Not AS bad as the rest... but not good at all.
