Saab Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

Many drivers who are in the market for a used Saab vehicle want to consider a Certified Pre-Owned, or CPO, vehicle. CPO programs allow owners of used cars to drive with confidence, knowing that their vehicle has been inspected and repaired by professionals before ever hitting the lot. These cars usually come with an extended warranty and other benefits like roadside assistance.

Saab does not currently offer a Certified Pre-Owned car program. Read on to discover more about Saab Automobile, which is now called National Electric Vehicle Sweden.

Company history

Saab was founded in 1945 in Sweden, where it designed small automobiles. In 1968, the company merged with Scania-Vabis, who oversaw the production of the Saab line’s best-selling model ever, the Saab 900. In the late 1980s, General Motors became a part owner of Saab, and helped introduce the brand to the American market. Saab remained a property of General Motors until 2010. After being sold to a Dutch company, the Saab brand petitioned for bankruptcy and was eventually disbanded.

In 2012, Saab Automobile restructured itself as National Electric Vehicle Sweden, or NEVS. Their first design was introduced in 2013, but the company lost its license to use the Saab name in 2014. No cars have been manufactured under the Saab name since that time.

General Motors fulfils Saab’s warranties.

When Saab declared bankruptcy in 2011, owners of Saab vehicles were effectively left without warranties on their vehicles whatsoever. At that time, General Motors released a press statement, declaring that they would “take necessary steps to ensure that remaining warranty obligations on Saab vehicles marketed by GM in the United States and Canada” would be honored. This only covered Saab vehicles that were sold until February of 2010, when GM sold Saab.

Used Saab value.

Buyers who still wish to own a Saab vehicle can purchase used Saabs from dealers. At the time of this article in April 2016, a used 2009 Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan is valued between $6,131 and $8,500 on Kelley Blue Book. While used cars haven’t been inspected like a Saab Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, or come with the extended warranty offered to CPO vehicles, this is still a valid option for those who wish to drive a Saab.

In any case, it's always wise to have an independent certified mechanic inspect any used car before buying it, as any used car can come with serious issues that aren't apparent to an untrained eye. If you're in the market to buy a used car, schedule a pre-purchase inspection for total peace of mind.
