    One Million Miles in a Saab? Get a New One from Saab - For Free

    DETROIT — Convinced of the jet-like performance and endurance of its products, Saab Automobile USA is announcing that it will offer a free new Saab to any U.S. customer who covers the distance of one million miles (or more) in a Saab that he or she originally purchased new. The new Saab will come with the 100,000 mile/5 years GM Powertrain limited warranty and 3 years/36,000 miles no-charge scheduled maintenance, standard with every model in the 2007 Saab Automobile USA portfolio.

    This announcement comes after Wisconsin resident and insurance salesman Peter Gilbert recently reached the one million milestone in a 1989 Edwardian Gray Saab 900 SPG, still with the original engine and turbo, at this year’s North American Saab Owners Convention in Lake George, N.Y. Saab Automobile USA General Manager Jay Spenchian was the very first to congratulate Gilbert and his 900 SPG on the occasion.

    “Saabs are made for people who love to drive, as proven by the many high-mileage examples in the Saab owners’ community”, Spenchian said. “Having personally been with Peter Gilbert in his 900 SPG as we crossed their magical finish line together, one cannot help but being impressed by the condition of car and driver after one million miles. Our offer of a new Saab to any U.S. customer who equals this achievement, should be seen as a token of appreciation for the enduring loyalty and confidence in Saab.”

    Mr. Gilbert will receive a brand new, 260 hp Saab 9-5 Aero (MSRP $ 38,735 ) as a worthy replacement for his tried-and-true 900 SPG. Delivery of the new car is to be scheduled in early 2007 at the Saab Aero Academy at Road Atlanta, Georgia. Saab is the only U.S. manufacturer offering this two-day enhanced driving course – a $1,350 value – at no cost to every U.S. customer who buys a new Saab 9-3 Aero or 9-5 Aero.

    “I am obviously thrilled with the idea of being presented with a new Saab 9-5 Aero”, Gilbert said. “It is not just fast and fuel efficient, but also extremely safe. A reassuring thought, keeping in mind that my faithful 900 SPG and I survived many a collision with Wisconsin deer. Who knows, I might take a run at another million miles in my new 9-5! "

    The offer of a free, new 2007 Saab 9-5 Aero [not to exceed the Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price of $38,735 (certain features and options are subject to availability at time of delivery) and delivery to take place at an authorized Saab USA dealer] valid from the date of this release through calendar year 2007 (offer ends Dec. 31, 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time), is available to any U.S. customer who can present verifiable proof to Saab Automobile USA that he or she is the original owner of the Saab vehicle that covered one million road miles or more, that the vehicle is in running condition, that the odometer hasn’t been tampered with, and that the vehicle is currently and has always been registered in the United States. The customer is responsible for all applicable taxes, title fees, registration and destination charges. Visit www.saabusa.com for important details and limitations on this offer.

    Worse yet, one would have covered that distance behind the wheel of (and thus seen driving) a fucking Saab.

    I couldn't handle owning a car for that long. I can last 5 or 6 years, then I want something new.

    Care to explain why it bothers you why someone states contempt and disgust for the product?

    Good for you. Be happy that the company learned how to keep your's running well by the trial and error experiments performed upon my wife's model.

    You are welcome.

    I purchased a new SAAB for my wife in November '03 (a 9.5). I purchased the car in large part based upon the car's reputation as being an outstanding vehicle. Boy was I wrong! That car has put more miles in the shop than it has on the road and all I have ever gotten was a ration of shit from the dealership and SAAB, who both seem to enjoy pointing fingers at each other.

    Here is the ultimate kicker....

    I have a brother who is two years older than me. He's a career military guy and has spent much of the last several years in the middle east in one fashion or another. My brother was put up for adoption right after he was born, however we managed to find each other several years ago. We had not had the chance to meet in person yet when he called me from Fort Irwin California. He told me he couldn't leave the base and was bumming hard. My wife and I decide to surprise him by driving in from Las Vegas to see him. As I have dreamt for years about meeting my brother, you could imagine how excited I was that I was finally going to meet him.

    As we got into California and were heading into some lower foothils, my SAAB sudeenly loses power. I pull over to the side of the road and end up having to call for a tow because the piece of shit took a major shit on me!. Luckily, my best friend was abnle to come pick my wife and I up and offered to take us in to see my brother....

    I gotta tell you, I am not impressed with this car and will never purchase another one.
