A Saab is a family member. You probably have to drive yourself to understand that. The fact is, many Saab drivers give their vehicles a name. Today the readers will meet Luna, which stands for the moon in Romance languages. Luna will be two decades old in 2020, and the chances of getting even older are extremely good.
Saab 9 5 Aero 2000
Paul and his family have acquired the 9-5 Aero before 3 years with a good 310.000 kilometers on the clock. Meanwhile, more 55.000 have come to it. Luna is a first-hand vehicle that has been meticulously maintained by an older architect. The Saab is very well equipped, with automatic and the famous seat ventilation. The limousine was delivered in the year 2000 about the dealership Lafrentz in Kiel. In addition, the Swedish car with the color “midnight blue” has one of the most elegant paintworks that Trollhättan has ever seen.
What problems can an almost 20 year old car have? There's the rust, Paul tells me. The topic will be tackled soon. In addition to the usual small parts of wear parts, which are due with increasing age in each car, the transmission was overhauled at 150.000 kilometers. Otherwise, Luna runs reliably and is a very pleasant travel companion. To keep it that way in the future, the engine oil will be changed every 8.000 kilometer.
Back to Sweden, the Saab came twice last year, of course with a visit to Trollhättan. The family hopes for many more years with their Saab. This is called lived sustainability. And this topic seems to occupy many Saab drivers.
The mailbox of the “kilometer kings” is filling up more and more. So it can take a while for the publication to be published, as only one vehicle per week is selected at random. The campaign seems to have hit the nerve of the reader, as every Saab shown here is a statement against careless consumption and the trend to swap cars faster and faster without reflection.
This coming Saturday, I present the next Saab veteran. All owners of kilometers kingswho want to see their car on the blog are invited to send pictures and information.
