My Saab 9-5 NG is currently in the Saab Center Bamberg. The topic: rust prevention. Since I want to drive the Saab as long as possible and there is no sign of supplies, this is an investment that makes sense.
The Saab was previously in Sweden, in the Gothenburg area. In terms of salt content, the roads in winter correspond to what we know from the Franconian Fichtelgebirge region. There is plenty of road salt and grit, an endurance test for cars. The first impression confirmed that it is a good idea to take care of the Swedish sheet metal. More on this when the operation is successfully completed.
Old Saab = good Saab?
In the meantime, I am traveling with an old acquaintance, a Saab 9-5 Aero OG. A Werkstattersatzwagen of Saab center Bamberg, with over 230.000 kilometers on the counter. Saabs are known to be durable and reliable, the predecessor of the 9-5, the Saab 9000, is almost unbreakable. Life as a Werkstattersatzwagen is twice as hard as a normal car life. How does the old Saab 9-5 Aero hit so many kilometers? Is he still fun or did he lose some of his turbo horsepower over time? I'm busy the week in the self-test diligently, the review of an older Saab with many miles comes in the next week on the blog.
Saab 9-4x fleet at Lafrentz
Autoevolution thinks to have discovered a whole fleet of used Saab 9-4x at our Kiel Saab base. So the story is not quite right, the pictures are old and some of the vehicles in the photos at the time were owned by another Saab partner. But the Kiel continue to import the Saab 9-4x and 100% of all available models in Germany are there for sale. Currently there are two pieces.
Important news & hobbies
Before we come to some of the more important Saab news on Wednesday that could affect our daily lives with the brand, after a long day at work, it's about the hobby aspect.
For Saab collectors we have new in our fan shop a small remaining stock of model cars, which are no longer available from the manufacturer for some time. Saab 9000 CC and Saab 95 are available from NEO in very limited quantities. Christmas, the annual gift season is approaching, the opportunity is here.
There will be no more replenishment of the 1:43 models in this special color scheme. Here, too, the model does not differ from the original. We have also come up with a little Swedish nice treat for all customers: from a value of € 40,00 we give you a Swedish loomband. While stocks last!
