In Sweden, the sales announcement for a Saab 9-5 sports suit made a big stir. "Saab 9-5 station wagon - you will regret it”Was to be read. Of the Expressen even suspected that this was the car that Saab would have broke on.
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.
For one thing, there are people in Sweden who don't like negative Saab press. On the other hand, there is a reputation that must be defended ... that of the long-term car, which is robust for many years and kilometers. How nice that Orio AB sees itself as the seal keeper of the brand and the vehicles on the street.
A short time after the ad went through the press, the country director of Orio AB responded. The Saab 9-5 sports suit will be repaired ... with original Saab spare parts; the costs are borne by the company from Nyköping. It's about maintaining a reputation and it's about customer satisfaction. Even if the guarantee has long expired, the vehicle is 16 years.
Orio put a teaser to this action online, for us you have inserted a German subtitle. Thanks to Eschborn and Nyköping! The story will continue on Orio AB and on the blog.
Owner Markus Eriksson may no longer sell the Saab. After the repair the 9-5 will stay in the family, he wants to give it to his daughter.
