Saab reduces replacement parts prices

SAAB has slashed an average of 17% off the prices of replacement parts in a move to cut service and maintenance costs. Clutch components are now 16% cheaper, the price of oil filters has dropped by 34%, front brake pads cost 27% less, and exhaust systems are now 32% cheaper.

The Swedish manufacturer has analysed the prices of 10,000 individual items as part of its most detailed ever pricing review, and realigned many prices to compete with fast-moving items sold by independent quick-fit outlets. The new pricing schedules apply to all Saab models, irrespective of their year of manufacture or specification, and Saab has pledged to keep the prices of fast-moving parts under constant review.

Jeff Blackman, Saab GB's general manager, aftersales, said: 'The scale of the work we have carried out is proof that we are determined to show there is no cost penalty associated with enjoying the individuality of running a Saab.

'We are empowering our dealers to compete with non-approved, independent operators, as well as other franchises.'
