The Saab group hasn't owned the auto company for a long time, although it once did. When I asked a GM guy at an autoshow about Saab after they took over what the biggest change he saw, he said you could now call someone on a Friday and actually find them in the office! GM brought both good and bad to their marriage - access to a lot more buying power making commodity items cheaper, and access to some of the better parts in the international parts bin, but IMHO, lack of purpose and identity and a lot of the uniqueness that set them apart in the time while owned by corporate SAAB group was lost in the process.
