Saab stops production after not paying suppliers

Over the past week, [url="http://<a%20href="http://www.sgcarmart.com/news/article.php?AID=4286"%20target="_blank">http://www.sgcarmart...hp?AID=4286</a>"]Saab has had to stop production at its Trollhatten factory in Sweden[/url], after a series of disputes with its suppliers.

The suppliers allege that Saab has not been paying them on time, and have therefore ceased supplying parts to Saab, forcing the Swedish carmaker to temporarily halt production as they try to resolve the issues. This happened not just once, but twice in the past week.

It is quite worrying to read about such troubles for Saab, as we've all thought that they are back on the right foot following their takeover by Spyker last year.

After a promising start, with launches of new models like the new 9-5 as well as the 9-4X crossover, the future for the once struggling Swedish marque looked bright.

However, the latest problems seem like a blight on their road to recovery, and it certainly doesn't instill any more confidence in potential customers who might already have a tarnished image of the brand after their woeful days under GM ownership.

Hopefully Saab manages to resolve these issues soon, and get back to its main core of business, which is building cars. We certainly don't want to see the brand die off after coming so close to doing so last year.
