Well, HJ, that's how the automotive industry works... Everyone is in bed with everyone else, to one degree or another. I, personally, think that Saab's are pretty nice cars. Their only Achille's Heel is that they're all FWD. This purported transfer of technology from Subaru to Saab is a good thing. If GM makes more money on Saab's because they were able to leverage existing AWD technology from Subaru, then it stands to reason that they might be more favorably inclined to put some money into hi-po Sube's for the US market.
