Haha, thats nothing really. 4 months ago it was a 6 page log. And thats a summery of just high demand/high priority backorders. There are lots of other parts backordered. I am waiting on a main front body wiring harness for a '08 9-3SS for just shy of three weeks now. Coming direct from Sweden (no joke). Waited recently 3 months for a seatbelt to come for an '08 9-5 Aero.

The parts that really get me are when key remotes (recently 9-3SS) and direct ignition cassettes are back ordered for months disabling cars. Simple stuff like this should be stockpiled as every car needs them.

Over the summer when I had the ENTIRE a/c system replaced on my Vig...stupid shit, like o-rings were on back order. But the compressor, condenser, and dryer were not. Go figure.

Backorders are likely caused by unpaid suppliers.

Sad as it appears, SAAB's current financial condition points toward dissolution. http://www.businessweek.com/ap/financia ... MUKVG1.htm

SAAB's bankruptcy appeal was filed yesterday.

Fear not, SAAB parts are available from dealers, advertisers on this site, and other Internet sources.
