More than likely it was intended that the trim would continue. GM and Saab had quite different cultures. GM mass produces automobiles at low cost while Saab was enjoyed a much less compromising corporate culture. There is this whole story about how GM told Saab to use GM’s satellite navigation solution to which they ostensibly agreed. Months later when GM executives visited Saab to review a production prototype they discovered that Saab engineers has created their own solution rather than re-using GM’s technology. It appears to be quite clear that many of the quality issues you find in post GM acquisition Saab models is due to cost cutting measures imposed by the new corporate overlords in Detroit.

According to a friend who works for GM, they used the Trionic ignition system developed by Saab. That may be the legacy of Saab ... that GM now uses an ignition system developed by Swedes.

The selling of the factory to someone else and leasing it back to themselves is a move from the venture capitalist financial playbook. Just like Eddie Lampert selling off Sears crown jewels to subsidiaries of his hedge fund firm and having Sears rent the space.

I have one of these cars - the best car Ive ever had. There are new stickers for the buttons to get very easily. One should also note that even if some of the gauges shut down when using Night Mode, they still light up if anything out of the ordinary happens, for instance if you're running low on petrol. And on spare parts in general, they are no problem at all, except for body panels which can be harder to find. The armrest movement thingy is using in some Peugeots as well. Oh, and the ethanol engines (BioPower) means lower tax bracket. The black A- and B-pillars is a legacy from one of the concept cars which had a windscreen that had no A- nor B-pillars, and that look is amazing which they tried to bring to this car as well, albeit in a not practical way. For me - the LED-bar was the thing that sold me, absolutely LOVE that thing :D the green gauges and display color is a heritage thing as well from the aircraft days, just like u say, Born from jets. Nice vid tho :)

Fun fact about the Night Panel of the previous 9-5, is that it turned all the lights off, except the speedometer was lit up to 140 km/h, if you drive faster than that, the Night Panel mode automatically turns off.

The turn signals are flashing quickly because next to the reverse lamp, there is an incandescent bulb in the red lens that also flashes with the turn signal and brakes. Kind of similar to the tail lights on a US-spec Alfa Romeo 4C where the red incandescent bulb at the center flashes with the red LEDs around it. The owner must have found this to be stupid and awkward looking and removed them leaving the LED lights by themselves. He should have just put an LED bulb in their place.

You missed a couple of interesting features. The Bio power meant that when you filled it with gasoline it had 220hp but when you filled it with e85 it adapted timing, fuel mapping and turbo and got 300hp. Also the rear seat it foldable 1/3 and 2/3 so you can stick quite long stuff in there.

LoL @ the center console armrest feature... didn't you see, a more evolved version, a VAG armrest? 2005 to present. The hinge level has stops, and some also have "depth position" (the sliding). All SAAB cars are airplane theemed, the black pillars, sloped roof gives the 4 windows an outside cockpit look, not just the display speedo...

Thing about Saab’s if one of the back lights are out it will give the notification that the light is out but it will use a different light in the same compartment it will light up the signal. In my car it was the brake light that was out but the light still lit up. It was using the running lights as the brake light until the brake light was changed

It failed because GM tried to turn it into a Buick. GM deliberately took SAAB to the back of a barn with this car and shot it in the head. In the US SAAB wasn't a strong seller. In Europe, it did ok, but by turning it into a Buick nobody bought this abomination. So, like a disease, in typical GM fashion, GM infected SAAB with their garbage components and SAAB died a horrible death from GMitis. The same route Hummer went.
