love at first sight

Saab, the small brand from Sweden, is the automobile love for many readers. Also for Pascal, the next article for ours Competition wrote.

In the neighboring village drove at that time a 9-5 Aero estate car. Somehow it was love at first sight, I really liked it. The perfect family car for me, if I ever got that far.

Every year I went to the showroom just to sit in the Saab 9-5, which at that time was too expensive for me since I had not been active in my professional life for long.

2005 I discovered the 9-3 Sporthatch in a magazine, I was thrilled, and of course cheaper than the 9-5er. I went to the Saab dealer to inform me.

The 9-3 was perfect, but in the Show Room there was an 9-5er Sportkombi Vector. My wife instantly fell in love with the 9-5er, which was not originally planned. The seller made me an amazing offer, probably because the chrome goggles went to the Saab dealers, 9-5 almost for the price of 9-3, I could not say "no".

2013 I drove 700 Km. By train from Luxembourg to Kiel to pick up my 9-3 convertible. So I am prepared for the next time, but I strongly hope that I will buy my third Saab again as a new car.

  • Hello Pascal,
    I can understand you well. The 9-5er is really great. I myself drive an 2005er model still in the old design and am highly satisfied. Space without end, while super motorized and absolutely economical in consumption.
    I'll keep my fingers crossed for winning the picture.
    However, the taste of your son leaves much to be desired. The jersey is more than borderline.
    Greetings from NRW.

  • Very nice story, a Saab is known not a Saab. I can totally understand that
