Want to increase sales, try lowering prices.  I could buy a nice Cadillac for the Price of a 9-3 Convertible.

Well, it's arguable that a 9-3 Convertible is worth the price of a nice Cadillac.
If you say so. Sales figures say otherwise. :(

Saabs aren't bad, but they aren't Cadillacs. [/b][/quote]
What do sales figures have to do with the worth of a vehicle? So that a Saab convertible coupe sells in less volume than, say, the CTS, implies that the Saab is overpriced? That the Corvette sells in lower volume than a Lexus LS430, the Vette is overpriced, too?

The Saab brand has what it takes, with appropriate product, to do very well. And appropriate product should, in fact, send the message that they're "not Cadillacs."

If Saab sales don't do well, it's simply a reflection that GM's still a blind squirrel that happened to find a nut in Cadillac. And with cars like 9-2 and 9-7, I happen to believe that's the case. Saab is becoming the European-equivalent of Geo, which is a bad strategy.
