“For any vehicle sold or leased during this period, the customer should be affirmatively advised that the vehicle does not carry any warranty coverage and is sold ‘as is’, ” read the statement. Additionally, Saab Cars North America has suspended the processing and payment of all claims, including new-car warranties, powertrain warranties, emission warranties, parts warranty, safety belts, airbags, towing, recalls and campaigns, certified pre-owned coverage, goodwill and no charge maintenance.

“Saab owners should be advised to keep receipts of all related warranty work done or services performed until further notice,” Saab Cars North America stated.
