In Sweden there were these nasty story with the “Katastrophen - Saab”, which went through the media. Readers remember: A Saab 9-5 sports suit, just 16 years old and 200.000 kilometers on the road, caused a lot of annoyance.
Maintenance backlog and lack of affection of its owners had made the once proud Swede a sad car. There was a wave of negative headlines until the Orio AB pulled the plug on the problem.
The Saab was repaired with original spare parts. They came from Orio from Nyköping; the working time set tuner Maptun. At the same time the engine was overhauled, the air conditioning put into function, the list of things became infinitely long.
A supporter network took care of the body, the Saab was repainted. Sense of action: Make visible that no Saab on the scrap must. But on the contrary ! You can be stylish and well on the road with an older Saab.
All this is Orio marketing, logical. But of the good sort, and positive for our brand. The 9-5 is now on the road for more 16 years on Swedish roads. At least!
The result is a huge, early Easter gift for the owner's daughter. Ida was given a new 9-5 in front of the Örebro Castle. The operation was 100% successful. As I said, the 9-5 station wagon is 16 years old. What you may not believe when you see the pictures. Was his debut really back in 1999? The design is still fresh, timeless, Scandinavian. The interior, with new used seats in the old glory, as well. The new Saab rims do the rest. He looks good ...
Saab has always had a tendency towards oversized Easter gifts. In the 90s, customers could buy their Easter Saab from local Saab dealers. More on this on Sunday on our classic & youngtimer blog.
