Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Well here we are again ! So long 2016, and what a year it has been !
Once again we at Motorvation, Chris, Jacquie, Mike and Dan would like to say thank you to everyone who supports us with their loyalty and custom.
We truly appreciate it, and we looking forward to seeing everyone in 2017.

Sometimes we think the whole world seems to have gone crazy! We are living in great times of change both socially and politically. We have seen quite a few famous faces pass away this year, and lost some heroes of our times. Sadly we have also said goodbye to a few older clients who became friends over the years. However, life carries on, continuing to bring us lots of laughs, new friends, and new opportunities. So we are welcoming 2017 !
Please Note : Our opening times.
We are closed from Friday 23rd until Tuesday 3rd January.
In an Emergency : Please call us and you will get through to our emergency line if you are not answered leave a message and we will get back to you quickly.

Once again we wish you all the best of the season.

Saab Airbag Recall

Saab AirbagWe have had several enquiries around the subject of the reported airbag recall affecting Saab. This is part of a global recall by the manufacturer Takata who supply many of the car manufacturers with airbags.

We have made enquiries and whilst not yet confirmed we believe that the recall applies to vehicles in the US market, and doesn’t include GB spec cars. We will keep you posted should we get further clarification. I have included the link to one of the articles on the subject below.

Happy Christmas

Dear All

First and foremost thank you for your support for us this year.

What a year it has been ! Here at Motorvation we continue to serve you and our other Saab customers. Genuine Parts supply remains good. We have noticed the rise in the number of relatively poor quality aftermarket parts becoming available cheaply, indeed several customers have bought these parts on the internet, sometimes at more cost than the genuine item !

We continue to see a rise in customers requesting ” full car” refurbishment of their cars, as they say ” I’ve tried other cars, but I just like my Saab ! With the steadily continuing rise in value of older cars such as the Classic 900 and the 9000 we find ourselves carrying out more restoration work to these cars ranging from small welding repairs to all out vehicle refurbishment.

The ups and downs of Saab have continued to keep us watching. I have written an article below summarising what we currently know about NEVS ( the owners ) and the current developments. I hope you find it interesting.

 Saab News.

NEVS is spending several billion dollars on developing several new electric car models, which will be launched from 2017. “It will now be a broader product range than we’ve ever seen from Saab Automobile in the past. Models will gradually be rolled out the first being the electric 9-3. We already have a greater demand than we had anticipated,” said Mattias Bergman in an interview with P4 West.

 After the 9-3 electric car, there will be four new products at optimized for electric drive. There are two SUVs, a hatchback and a crossover, all medium sized cars, says Mattias Bergman. “this is probably one of the biggest industrial projects in Sweden right now. he said.” “In the spring we will begin to rebuild the parts of the plant to prepare for the production start this summer, we have employed over one hundred car builders, we are employing more to begin construction in the autumn.”

 It remains unclear how the cars will be branded. NEVS does not as yet have the right to use the brand  name. Saab AB withdrew the permission to use the brand name keen to ensure that they were not associated with another bankruptcy like the last in December 2011. Saab AB displayed considerable patience during the reconstruction and negotiations are ongoing with regard to using the Saab name, which still is allowed to adorn the factory, as long as the sign remains, Saab AB have not said no.

So what will those new models look like ?

Here are some images that we have gleaned showing the first impressions of the new models.


 And Finally. It just remains for us to wish all the very best for Christmas and hoping you have a happy and successful 2016 !


Best Wishes.

New Diversion Map to reach Motorvation Saab

roadworks sign

Due to the roadworks on the A21 between Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells, the access to the end of Halfmoon Lane has been changed to a left turn only. DO NOT attempt to turn right as the contractors have installed cameras and will report any cars ignoring the no right turn signs.

Halfmoon Lane has been completely closed below our workshop so the ONLY access currently is from the A21

This means that anyone approaching us from the south has to take the new diversion route to get to us. Please click on the Location Map button below to get a map and directions to get to us.
