There’s been a lot of new visitors here since we last covered any news from Danni, so it’s worth a little recap.
I know there’s some hard core Saab owners out there with multiple Saabs and two-strokers and all that stuff, but Danni’s dedication to Saab is pretty remarkable.
Danni lives in Namibia. That means it’s 2,000km trip to get your car serviced and whilst the landscape can be beautiful along the way, it’s also pretty harsh:
So Aussies, think about driving from Melbourne to Brisbane for a service. You ‘Mericans can try New York to MPLS and how about the entire length of the E20 from Shannon in Ireland to St Petersburg – and then some?
Danni’s 9-5 Aero has just ticked over 200,000 kms, and whilst it’s not yet in the pantheon of high mileage Saabs, he’s pretty satisfied with it:
Just a small update: I have now covered 200,000km with my cosmic blue 9-5 Aero MY01. For the naysayers and those journalists preaching the usual bollocks about the reliability of the 9-5 Aero – Here’s to happy motoring!
This is not blind faith or some brand loyalty – the product works, and for that matter, considering the environment and the service backup, it’s a true testament to the build quality of the product – put together to last.
I still reckon Namibia should become a new proving ground for hot and rough weather testing.
Naturally, there’s photos of the event…..
