A few days ago we planned a trip to really good SAAB friends to Kamenz. We wanted to see each other shortly before the holiday and tell a little ... Only which car should we take?
The Saab convertible suffered a puncture and failed. The 9-3 sedan or the service BMW? The BMW, as a foreign brand, departed by itself. He would not have had a chance against Paul anyway. Because whenever our kids have a choice, the Bayer stays in the carport, and the good old Saab is allowed on the street. Fast 20-year-old Saab beats new BMW. Always and reliable.
So Paul was allowed on the street !!! The roughly 100 kilometers we rolled off in just 1,25 hours ... You can not travel more comfortable ... relaxing seats, quiet ride. Always a great car! That makes you happy, but also thoughtful. Many Saab 9-5 who are Paul's age are currently disposed of. They disappear forever, although there is so much potential in these vehicles. That's not sustainable.
Paul makes a bitch
Already on arrival I noticed a certain restlessness. The idling speed fluctuated from 750 to 1500 and back again ... A cause for concern? Paul has been very reliable so far, and after 5 minutes, he ran as usual.
Picked up our friends with the Saab and then on to the photo shoot! Theme: "Paul with sunflowers". Then very tasty to the Italians. Everything perfect, but on the way home then again unrundered engine running and commuting ...
Meanwhile, I really thought, because Paul had actually received the large all-inclusive package and was thanks to the blog donations and the godfather durchrepariert. Purely by logic, it should be good for many, many 1.000 kilometers and many years without major problems.
Remote Diagnosis: Turbo hose off.
For this reason, the next morning Tobias Kaboth from mobile Forum called and told him the problem on the phone. Tobias knows Saab technology like no other, even if his car dealer Group the money today for the most part with other makes earned. Nevertheless, the heart still beats for the Swedes, and he is one of Paul's godparents.
His remote diagnosis: Turbo hose defective ... all-clear? The following Monday, I drove Paul to the Mobile Forum. Lo and behold: after 5 minutes came from the workshop confirmation: Turbo hose down ... After another 5 minutes Paul was allowed to roll back from the yard. Since then, the Saab 9-5 sports car runs smoothly, Saab driving is fun. And so is service .. Many thanks to Dresden!
