I'd imagine that most, if not all, of us appreciate the enthusiasm and excitement of the longevity of this Saab, but I think the mods need to make a sticky about reposts
I have an 89 Turbo, I only have another 855,000 miles to go

This thing just won't die.

I think some members need to spend more quality time on board.

Or maybe some of us just actually have lives.

The last movie I watched was "Indian Fighter" starring Kirk Douglas.....Maybe that tells you something about my "life".

I'm watching Futurama and browsing the web looking at prices of catalytic converters for my car

Futurama? Whats that? Never mind, the future is in glacier water, I tell ya man, its in glacier water. Get it quick, bottle it up and stick a fancy lable on it. It's melting so fast if you don't hop on it quick it will all be gone, people will be up to their necks in it and peeing in it and all kinds of crud, nobody wants glacier water sombodys wee wee'ed in.

Not really. You can run checks like Carfax to see if there are any reports with a higher mileage listed that might indicate the odometer was rolled back or changed, or it might just be a mistake on the part of the person who read the odometer. If a report says 169,000 and the car reads 69,000, meh, maybe just a mistake. If it says the mileage was 140,000 three weeks ago when it was serviced at the dealer and the car reads 69,000, thats when you should start scratching your head and calling your local odometer rollback man.

If the odometer was broken when you bought the car the title should show that.

You can check for things like excessively worn seats, worn brake/gas/clutch pads/pedals, etc that on a low mileage car might not should be that worn.

Other than that there isn't much you can do.

Mileage is relative to how it's cared for.

You could try asking it.


And by the way guys, my sincerest apologies for reposting something you've already seen. In order to save you the vast amount of time and energy it took to click that link to my foolishly preposterous post, I'm going to spend the next 3 weeks reading and memorizing all of the previous posts to prevent something so heinous from occuring again.

But really, how about that saab?

Yup, pretty cool huh? My father had a 99 that made it to around 400,000 before it was retired. I think the key is driving enough fast enough to get all those miles in before you like, die or something.
