Saab suspends warranty coverage of all of its vehicles in North America

Article by Christian A., on December 21, 2011

The warranty coverage of all of Saab’s vehicles in North America has been suspended. Saab told its dealers that new vehicles will be sold “as is.” The suspension started last Monday, which is also when a Swedish court granted Saab’s bankruptcy petition to liquidate and start paying creditors. Saab's assets will be overseen by two receivers.

The suspension took effect on Dec. 19 and will continue indefinitely. In a statement, Saab Cars North America said that for this period, the warranty booklet has to be taken out from the owner information packet.

Dealers were asked to inform customers that all vehicles sold or leased is sold 'as is’ and won’t have any warranty coverage. Saab Cars North America said that owners have to be advised that until further notice, they have to keep receipts of all related warranty work done or services performed.

The new 2011 Saab models used to be covered by a 4-year, 50,000-mile warranty that included roadside assistance.

In addition, he gave no charge scheduled maintenance for three years or 36,000 miles. GM had managed Saab’s sales and covered Saab’s warranties until February 2010. Swedish Automobile AB, formerly known as Spyker Cars, has owned Saab since then.

Bernie Moreno, dealer principal of Saab of North Olmstead, Ohio, said it's not yet known if reimbursement will ever be offered again in the future.

Moreno added that this will be determined after a few days. However, he said that he is planning for the worst scenario and is assuming that reimbursement has been taken off the table permanently.
