Saab can make happy. Anyone who has ever driven a turbo legend out of Trollhättan is in danger of lifelong dependence. Last Friday I was traveling with friend Marco. In his family, two Saab 9-3 have found their home, one last Saab 9 3 Aero Coupe, But of all people, Marco, one of Saab's biggest fans, has to drive the last remaining foreign brand in the family fleet every day. A condition that is untenable!
Remedy can be created solely by a brand change, because a relief of the withdrawal symptoms is only possible through the original. in the Saab center Mainz we picked up new used Saabs again within a few weeks. Saab number 3 and Saab number 4, because the people of Mainz are very agile and organize beautiful Saab everywhere. But organizing is not everything! In Mainz - and now there is kudos from the blog - you sell used cars as if they were new cars. The vehicles have been thoroughly prepared, all the quirks from the previous ownership have been removed, and there is an obligatory bouquet of flowers to hand over. So Marco finally got his long-awaited Saab 9-5 Aero sports suit, with everything that the then surcharge list gave, in very nice condition.
Marcos work colleague Daniel, who was able to pick up his very first Saab with a Saab 9-3 cabriolet, was part of the team on the way to Mainz. Certainly Marco, with missionary zeal, has his share in the purchase decision! But a Saab Cabriolet in the right color, with Hirsch performance enhancement, Hirsch sports suspension and Hirsch carbon leather dashboard is always the right choice.
Back from Mainz to northern Bavaria it went in the convoy, because already two Saab`s form meanwhile a formation, so seldom the mark has become in street picture. Marco with his 9-5 Aero as lead vehicle, with a permanent grin on his face, behind us Daniel, of course with the top down. Saab`s stand out, which we were able to experience at the stop at one of the usual American fast food restaurants and at later local crossings. In any case, there were two very happy Saab madmen on Friday. One, because his family fleet is finally 100% Saab, the other because he has a lot of fun with his first Saab and made the right decision!
Saab is increasingly becoming a phenomenon. Since there are no more new cars and, even with the greatest optimism, they won't be around anytime soon, the demand for good Swedes is increasing. I keep getting emails from former Saab drivers who now want to get back into a Saab. Ascending trend…
Marco is not alone with his Saab passion, and nobody can really explain this Saab phenomenon. Because it is blooming strange, and Saab partners who have recognized our passion do good business. Why is it? Is it the individuality of a small brand at a time when there is no longer any real automobile individuality in affordable price ranges, although the manufacturers want to suggest more individuality than ever? Or is it just the fabulous Saab turbo engines that go so well? Or the perfect seats that make long journeys not torture but joy? The list could go on and on. Maybe some of all of the factors play a role. Marco summed it up on Friday. "If I sit in a Saab, then it is this ... Welcome home feeling," he says. Many of us feel like this every day. With a little smile on his face.
