very difficult because the company closed down . they say there is a company which will be making the parts for it for a few years but its very hard to believe

I don't think it is hard to believe. There is still a lot of money to be made in parts. There are tons of cars still on the road today that are no longer made/factory shut down but you can still find parts for them, though they may be after-market parts (no, they WILL be, obviously). See this article (esp. last paragraph): http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/saab-bankrupt-2011-12-19

SAAB Parts AB was not part of the bankruptcy filing and is still open and Saab Parts USA still takes orders and ships all over the US and Canada. The hard part is finding a Saab owner who is willing to part with what could be their last Saab...

Nathaniel - Wow, I did not know that! That's very helpful, thanks. That makes me feel better as I am thinking about buying a Saab (as you probably know from my question that you answered a few days ago) and knowing that parts will still be available is definitely a big relief.

Its true what Nathaniel says, Saab Parts department is not bankrup and is the only part of saab that made money. Also now Saab Car production has got a new owner, so it should be back in normal operation soon =)

You will not have any problems at all. SAAB part is now owned by Swedish state.Not NEVS. In US they have started a new company for distributing new parts for all SAABs.
