  • I’m seriously concerned about parts for the NG 9-5. For example, according to “the Saab Site” (, there is currently only 1 HUD windshield in stock and it costs…$1,040. Just surfing around the site you’ll see many NG9-5 parts currently unavailable. Hey Thomas, how about an update on NG9-5 parts and when we can expect to see a healthy parts reserve for this modern classic. Let’s keep NG9-5’s on the road as ambassadors for the next generation of NEVS vehicles!
