287.000 kilometers are not much for a Saab. Especially not when it comes to a 9000. Its motors are considered indestructible. Even when grossly neglected, the Saab runs - at least as long as the engine finds a little oil somewhere for lubrication and some fossil fuel for combustion. In the future, it could also be synthetic fuel made from renewable energies.
The 9000 Aero by Hans Joachim, called Jojo, is definitely worth mentioning. Because it seems to be a rarity.
About the story: The 9000 Aero was registered in 1996 and professionally maintained at the Saab Center in Bayreuth. In 2000 Jojo took over the Saab. Since then, the aero has been maintained in the checkbook without any gaps. A specialty is its equipment, which makes it a rarity. The color Lemans blue in connection with sand beige interior is very rare to find, in connection with the legendary Aero seats even rarer. In addition there is the glass sunroof; there is therefore the claim that there are only 3 vehicles in the same configuration worldwide. Unfortunately, Saabblog has no production statistics and we cannot verify the statement made by a well-known Saab dealer, but we think it is very likely. If one of the readers has access to the corresponding old Saab statistics, Jojo would be happy to hear from you. The editors will be happy to establish contact if required.
The owner appreciates his rarity and maintains it accordingly. At the moment the 9k Aero is in hibernation and waiting for spring. 278.000 kilometers are not a house number for a Swedish car, especially for a 9000. Almost 20 years of holding time are further proof of the responsible use of scarce resources. You don't always have to park a new car in front of the front door.
Addendum: The Saab has now been sold. The new owner takes good care of him, eliminating the accumulation of things that need to be done despite regular maintenance. The 9000 is preserved, and that's the good news with such a rare vehicle.
We are looking for more kilometer kings!
Dealing with higher mileage and the idea of sustainability will be one of our priorities for the future. We will have to make friends with it if we want to continue driving Saab.
Do you also have a Saab with a high mileage or a very long holding period? It does not have to be the highest mileage in each case! In addition to the age of the vehicle, we also focus on sustainability. All owners of kilometers kingsThose who want to see their car on the blog are invited to send pictures and information.
