In Sweden, the sale of a Saab 9-5 sports car made a great deal of noise. "Saab 9-5 station wagon - you will regret it"Was read. Of the Expressen He guessed that was the car Saab had gone broke for.
Why is? A Saab 9-5 sports suit, which provides powerful for annoyance. The Saab has shortcomings without end, and the list of works is shorter than the error. Basically, everything is broken, writes owner Markus Eriksson. The station wagon is not a new car. He is from the year 1999, has just been ridiculous 16 years old and has run nearly 200.000 kilometers.
For other makes that would not be a fuss, one might think. Off on the car carrier, in the export, and bought a new car. With a Saab, things seem to be different.

On the other hand there is a reputation that needs to be defended ... that of the long-term car, which is robust for many years and kilometers. How nice that the Orio AB sees itself as a seal keeper of the brand and the vehicles on the road.

The Saab 9-5 sportswear is being repaired ... with original Saab spare parts; the costs are borne by the company from Nyköping. It's about keeping a reputation, and it's about customer satisfaction. Even though the warranty has long expired, the vehicle counts 16 years.
