Last June, I set up a page for something called the High Mile Club. As we weren’t going to see new Saabs for a while, I wanted to show how the Saabs we already own and love are in for the long haul, built to last and with stories to tell.
I’ve been thrilled to see so many amazing High Miles Saabs coming in to my Inbox ever since, and from so many global neighbourhoods.
A couple of days ago, I received the very first High Mile Saab of 2013, and it too had a story to tell. Being the first of the year, I thought I’d share it with you, it comes from the neighbourhood of Syracuse, New York.
“Back in 2009, I drove my Father-In-Law’s SportCombi, it made me realise I just had to have a Saab. A week later, my wife and I traveled 350 miles to pick up this 2003 9-5 SportCombi. It had already covered 80,000 miles and since then, we’ve added another 50,000 miles and loved every moment.
We’ve also purchased a brand new 9-3 SportCombi in 2011, and our son purchased a classic 900s, which he loves, It’s currently awaiting a new transmission and has covered 115,000 miles.
My beloved SportCombi is as strong and good looking today as the day we collected her, and I’m looking forward to 200,000 miles and beyond.
We’re hoping to add my Father-In-Law and son’s Saabs to the High Mile Club soon too”
Another fantastic story, and proving, yet again, that Saabs become part of your family, a tradition that passes through generations. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes into my Inbox next.
