Hogwash! I certainly would. Am I the only one in this 17million/yr market? There's certainly some emotional overlap, too, or Saab would not have chosen a Subaru as the basis for the 9-2 !!! Geez. This comment of yours sounds like the "VW is cheap" stuff.Originally posted by mgescuro@Jan 2 2004, 11:51 PM
But suffice it to say... people who buy Subarus won't step into a Saab dealership... and vice versa.
As I said, the performance compact crowd is one of the least brand loyal. We're not talking F-150s here... people will jump around to whatever's hot. The 9-2X will wind up outside of that market, though, because performance/dollar is much weaker than the identical but less-expensive WRX. The 9-2X will be a chick car. Guaranteed.
