Proud do-it-yourself Saab owners know the importance of using high-quality replacement components. Cheap reproductions abound for Asian cars, however until recently passionate enthusiasts have not enjoyed similar access to low-cost aftermarket and OEM Saab parts. The internet has enabled online maintenance item catalogs to satisfy this need. OEM equipment is made by the same manufacturer that created the original pieces used to build your vehicle, whereas aftermarket replacements are made by third party manufacturers. That doesn't mean aftermarket reproductions are inferior to OEM factory pieces however. It simply means they are not marked with the brand logo, which means they're typically much cheaper than genuine factory items from the dealer. In fact, aftermarket items are often less expensive than the worn-out, used parts, which are just as expensive to install as new pieces, yet may fail at any time.

If breaking down on the side of the road is a concern, it's much better to install brand-new online Saab car parts than used components, so you know you're getting high-quality and maximum lifespan for your money. Explore our online catalog today and learn how much you can save.
History of Saab
Saab Automobile AB is a Scandinavian automaker owned by National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB, (NEVS), and headquartered in Trollhättan, Sweden. Better known as simply Saab (an acronym for Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget, or Swedish Aeroplane Company), the automaker is famous for safety, ergonomics and turbo-charging technology.
Originally founded in 1937 in Linköping, Sweden as an aircraft manufacturer for the Royal Swedish Air Force, Saab began marketing automobiles in 1944 after demand for military aircraft lapsed. Its first automobile was the Project 92, which boasted a record-breaking drag coefficient of just 0.30 thanks to its aviation-influenced design and thoroughly-engineered parts. Other innovations would be the wraparound windshield, impact-absorbing bumpers, headlight washers and side-impact door reinforcements. The completely-redesigned Saab 93 was introduced in 1955, followed by the 94, 95, 96, 99, 600 and the ubiquitous 900 in 1978, which has been the automaker's best selling model to date. Ownership has fluctuated over the years, including a merger with Scania-Vabis AB from 1969-1989, full ownership by General Motors from 1989-2010, and sale to Spyker Cars N.V. in early 2010. Weak sales and financial difficulties forced it into bankruptcy in 2011, however in September of 2012, NEVS purchased Saab Automobile's bankruptcy estate and restarted production for the 9-3 Aero.
