Winter tire test: Gislaved Nordfrost 200

2009 Saab 9-7X 5.3i

I've been waiting for winter to finally get here so I could try these tires out. Up until now (cold weather, clear roads), the tires have impressed the hell out of me. They are super quiet, grip the corners well, and don't feel like a winter tire.

Now that we finally have some snow, I was able to try them out. Below are my findings ...

The Saab 9-7X 5.3i is equipped with GM's AWD system, comprised of Stabilitrac, Traction Control, a LSD rear diff, and an electronically controlled transfer case.
With everything enabled, I noticed the rear end kicks out when accelerating from a stop. It does this as well with the TC turned off. With ST turned off, it accelerates straighter as the front diff seems to kick in sooner.

I took the truck to along a road with a very steep climb and several tight switchbacks.
With everything turned on, ST basically prevented me from going anywhere because of wheel-spin. With the TC turned off, I was able to make it up the hill ok.
The trip back down was very uneventful as the tires maintained traction all the way down ... I found this to be very impressive considering this is not a lightweight!!!
I made another run up, this time with both TC and ST turned off. This time I was able to keep a higher speed up the hill with all 4 wheels pulling all the time.
One thing to note: if this truck was operating in RWD only, I would not have been able to climb the hill.
Again, the trip back down was uneventful.

All in all, I am very happy with these tires and how they perform on the 9-7X. I've had other models of the Nordfrost on Saab cars (2005 9-5 Aero SportCombi) and they were even better (I'm sure due to lesser weight of the 9-5).


Christmas Greetings.

NEVS approved by MIIT, NDRC to produce all-electric vehicles

In post SAAB news, NEVS approved for production.

The NEVS's two concept EV models, the 9-3 sedan and the 9-3X wagon, were unveiled at the 2017 CES Asia trade show. On December 5, 2017, as the NEVS 9-3 electric rolled off the production line, NEVS Tianjin project kicked off production, marking a new stage moving from development into industrialization. The automaker announced then that the 9-3 volume EVs would come off the production line in June, 2018. However, the plan is said to be postponed to the end of the year. Besides, the NEVS's plant is likely to be completed before 2018 ends.

Shanghai (Gasgoo)- National New Energy Vehicle Co., Ltd. (the NEV Company),a subsidiary of National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB(NEVS), was granted the certifica

Please be advised that in moving to Halifax, Christian is back to working on his own ... at least for the time being. Until he gets some additional help in the shop, he spends most of his time working on the cars and not on the phone or computer. If you call or email him and he does not answer, it isn't because he doesn't want to talk to you. It is simply because he is busy taking care of another customer at that time.

Also, Christian is not someone who spends time on Facebook. If you wish to contact him, your best options are: 1) visiting the shop, 2) calling and if necessary, leaving a voicemail message, or 3) sending him an email.
But please, don't ask him to diagnose an issue over the phone or via email ... bring your car into the shop and let him take a look at it in person.

Very sorry to hear about a fellow countryman and enthusiast.

Rest in Peace Erik ... you will be remembered!

Mr. Saab, Erik Carlsson has passed away

Erik Carlsson, nicknamed ”on the roof” has passed away following a short illness in a hospital close to his home in England. He was 86 years.
Erik Carlsson won the British RAC rally in 1960, 61 and 62 and also the Monte Carlo Rally in 1962 and 63. With these achievements Erik wrote himself, his home town Trollhättan in Sweden and his red Saab 96 rally car into motorsport history.
Erik Carlsson was the first Swedish superstar in motorsport and after his career behind the steering wheel he continued as a PR-personality and ambassador for Saab Automobile AB throughout the world.

He leaves behind his daughter Susie and family.
