I really, really want to like SAAB (my brother picked up a Sonnett, way cool. And as an electronics/automotive geek I really admire their engine electronics), but I really can't get past the connection with GM.

The service network here (Canada, where SAABs would just make sense) was such crap. You had to go down to your GM dealer and deal with the knuckle draggers to get your SAABs and Isuzus fixed. They didn't even know they were the network, let alone not knowing what to do with something that didn't have a small block LS blah blah blah was. No thanks.
