DETROIT, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Saab Automobile Parts North America (SPNA) announced its Saab Secure program. The program was developed to support those 2010 and 2011 model year Saab owners left without warranty coverage due to the bankruptcy of Saab Automobile AB in Sweden.
All 2010 and 2011 model year Saab vehicle owners are eligible to come in for a no charge initial oil change and service, which includes BG Products, Inc. engine oil additives. This service initiates the Limited Lifetime Protection Plan backed by BG. As long as the owner continues to service their vehicle within the required intervals and at a Saab Official Service Center, the protection plan will continue for the life of the vehicle.
In addition to the Limited Lifetime BG Protection Plan, Saab Secure will offer 2010 and 2011 model year vehicles, with up to 70,000 miles, a menu of Saab Secure vehicle service contracts that provide extended coverage levels and terms at affordable prices. Coverage is available from Basic Care powertrain coverage to Premier Care comprehensive component coverage, and is available in terms from 1 to 5 years from the date of contract purchase. These products are being launched in partnership with Pablo Creek Services, Inc.
"Just over a year ago the news was not good. Saab owners in North America and globally had just learned of the bankruptcy of one of the world's most cherished automobile brands," said Tim Colbeck, President and CEO of SPNA. "Today they are hearing some good news about parts, service and vehicle coverage. It is news Saab owners and the Saab network deserve, and I'm pleased to announce our new programs and partner companies, who are all committed to serving Saab owners in North America."Today's news follows the announcement last month that SPNA and GM entered into a Warranty Services Agreement that authorizes SPNA to provide warranty administration and related services through SPNA's network of Warranty Service Providers for model year 2009 and prior Saab vehicles still covered under the GM limited warranty.
