Saab Extended Warranty This page will help guide you through your search for a Saab Warranty.
Saab Extended Warranty Information
If you are purchasing an Saab, or if you already own one, you may be thinking about getting some level of coverage beyond the normal manufacturer's warranty. Although Saab's are generally very reliable vehicles, an extended auto warranty may provide you with protection to offer you the peace of mind you are looking for. Saab Coverage programs can either extend the original level of coverage that came with your vehicle, or offer you a limited extended warranty plan. These plans are accepted nationwide at all Saab dealers, and also afford you with most of the benefits usually granted with new car purchases.

 
Saab Extended Warranties - Independent Companies
Although Saab offers a very good extended warranty, many consumers feel more comfortable joining a third party provider. With a third party plan there are no restrictions regarding where you need to bring your vehicle, allowing you to go to any garage or mechanic in the country. This advantage will free you of the hassles of having to always deal with a dealer, make an appointment days away, and wait all afternoon for your repairs to be finished. You should investigate your options before picking your extended warranty plan.

No Charge Maintenance

 

Scheduled Maintenance Program

All 2003 Saab Models* are covered under the Saab No Charge Scheduled Maintenance Program for 3 years or 36.000 miles, whichever comes first, provided you have your Saab serviced at an authorized Saab dealer in the United States.

* This program applies to all 2003 Saab models initially sold in the US and covers all factory-recommended scheduled maintenance (excluding wear and tear items) for the above period, as outlined in the Warranties and Service Record Booklet. This program is associated with this particular vehicle, regardless of owner. This program is not transferable to another vehicle. The Saab No Charge Scheduled Maintenance Program may be terminated for future Saab vehicles at any time without notice.

Warranty and Support

The Saab new car limited warranty includes:

  • Bumper-to-bumper coverage for 4 years or 50,000 miles.*
  • Adjustment and wear item coverage for 1 year or 16,000 miles.*
  • Seat belt and supplemental restraint system coverage for 5 years, unlimited mileage.
  • Perforation warranty for 6 years, unlimited mileage. (9-5 and 9-3 Convertible)
  • Perforation warranty for 10 years, unlimited mileage. (9-3 Sport Sedan)

*Whichever comes first. See your dealer for details on this limited warranty.

Saab cars are renowned for their outstanding longevity and durability. Your Certified Pre-Owned Saab includes one of the industry's most encompassing warranty packages. First, the remaining balance of the factory 4-year/50,000 mile (whichever comes first) original new-car limited warranty automatically transfers to the new owner. Also transferring to the new owner is the balance of the factory 6-year/unlimited mile new-car corrosion protection limited warranty.

In addition, your Certified Pre-Owned Saab qualifies for a comprehensive Saab Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty*, up to 72 months/100,000 miles (whichever comes first) from original in-service date, which provides coverage that goes into effect after the original factory warranty has expired. This coverage is fully backed by Saab Cars USA, Inc.

And just like a new Saab, all Certified Pre-Owned cars include a final element of reassurance: a comprehensive Roadside Assistance program. Should you experience car trouble, help is just a phone call away. Saab's much heralded Roadside Assistance program includes full 24 hour coverage, 365 days a year, anywhere in the United States. And best of all, it's yours at no additional charge for the duration of the warranty. In the unlikely event that you need to use it, you can count on assistance with changing a flat tire, a jump-start, fuel delivery, towing - even locksmithing service.

* Exclusions from the original factory warranty apply. See your retailer for details. Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty period commences from the original In-Service date and lasts 6 years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Items excluded from coverage under this Limited Warranty are listed below. Coverage terminates upon failure to satisfy care and service requirements as described in manufacturer's original limited warranty. Refer to the original limited warranty for other limitations. Exclusions include but not limited to minor adjustments, wiper blades, drive belts, brake pads and rotors, clutch discs, telematics, audio equipment, batteries, tires and all other exclusions as described in the original limited warranty.

It's a Saab . . . not merely pre-owned, but "tried and true."

Saab ownership provides the experience of driving one of the finest cars in the world, offering luxury, performance, safety and levels of durability that are legendary the world over. Isn't it time you drove a Saab too?

A new Saab isn't always affordable for everyone. Now there is an alternative - the Saab Certified Pre-Owned program.

A Saab Certified Pre-Owned vehicle offers many of the same advantages of a new Saab - at significant savings over a similar new model. A great way to drive an incredibly durable car that's not so much pre-owned as "tried and true."

And at Saab, a top priority is customer satisfaction. You can count on superior service from the moment you approach a Saab retailer and throughout your entire ownership experience.


*The Saab Certified Pre-Owned limited warranty period commences at the time of sale of a Certified Pre-Owned Saab or upon expiration of the applicable Saab New Vehicle Limited Warranty, whichever occurs later. This Saab Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty expires 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original in-service date, whichever occurs first. Call 1 800 SAAB USA for important details and exclusions of the Saab Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty Program.

Certified Pre-owned

Only the best pre-owned Saabs are eligible to be Certified. To begin with, a Certified Pre-Owned Saab must satisfy a long list of requirements: the vehicle must be less than four years old, and it cannot have more than 60,000 miles on the odometer. And not only must the Saab be in excellent mechanical condition at the onset, but it must meet high visual standards as well.

Any of the following will immediately eliminate a vehicle from the Saab Certified program:
Over 60,000 miles
Older than 1999 model year
Warranty claim inquiry discrepancy
Unresolved problem found on Carfax Vehicle History Report
TMU (True Mileage Unknown) odometer reading
Frame, fire, and/or flood damage

From there, factory trained Saab technicians take over and exhaustively flight check and update the vehicle. Through a rigorous and extensive 110-point inspection/refurbishing process, each Saab is inspected, reconditioned and detailed to ensure that it meets the highest possible standards - indeed, as high as your standards. Only then can it be Saab Certified.
