Saab Parts Warehouse Closed, Again

Title: SCNA Parts Update 5/29/12
Date: 05/29/2012
To: Saab Dealers
From: SCNA
______________________________________________
Dear SCNA Retailer,
This letter is to update you on the status of the parts business at
SCNA. While there are still some agreements and approvals to be
finalized, it is anticipated that SCNA will sell the remaining parts
inventory effective June 1, 2012. As such SCNA will no longer continue
its parts business after this month.
In anticipation of the sale, SCNA has already suspended stock orders
and parts returns. In order to ship all remaining orders prior to the sale
of the inventory, the deadline for any part order is Noon Eastern
Time tomorrow (Wednesday May 30, 2012).

The buyer of the parts is Saab Parts North America (SPNA), a subsidiary
of Saab Automobile Parts AB. Assuming the remaining agreements
are finalized as expected, the transaction will be approved by
the bankruptcy court later this week. In addition to buying the parts,
SPNA is finalizing an agreement with Caterpillar Logistics Services
(CLS) to support the future parts business. Expect a communication
from SPNA this week regarding future distribution of Saab parts in
North America. They anticipate a quick restart to the parts business
after closing on the inventory.
Many of you have balances remaining in the SCNA escrow account to
fund parts purchases. Any cash amounts in the account that have not
been used to purchase parts will be refunded to you in full, paid by check
to be mailed on or about June 8, 2012.
We wanted to give some advance notice, however as stated above,
there are agreements and approvals that still need to take place.
Should there be issues with the aforementioned agreements
and approvals, the above is subject to change. SCNA will then evaluate
the situation, and any necessary adjustments, and provide an update
as appropriate.

Prices of everything has been above the roof already, like you said, if you can get them. Ive been ordering 80% of Saab parts out of UK lately, far more expensive once you add exchange rate, $hipping, dutys and import taxes. However if they have what you need... Sad thing it will continue to push people out of their cars and destroy the brand imagine more (if that's even possible at this point). Going through auctions super cheap and have had three clients tell me local dealers would not even accept their Saabs as a trade in.

Need to have parts patents released to aftermarket companies to allow for quicker aftermarket support
