My saab only has 89k on it, however it is getting a little rusty. All of you guys that have 250k+ miles really make me want to keep the car. I just looks like I have had bad luck with mine.
Rust is really as much a function of time vs. miles. If you drive through more salt spray, that will accelerate rust, but lower miles isn't necessarily going to make a huge difference unless it's very low miles (i.e. a 'vert stored winters).

I'm at 243k, heading in soon for original color respray and front bumper cover replacement (damn these small animals), and a head gasket, and a new top...she should be good for another 250k then...

My '95 900S just passed 190,000 this last week! I'm having a lot of fun with this dinky little Euro machine :cheesy: Its such a distinctive and unique vehicle in my neck of the woods.

Just hit 176,000 on my '99, had it for about 6 weeks. I bought it from a fellow SAAB enthusiast who had just rebuilt the turbo, installed a new clutch, new brake pads, and replaced 3rd and 4th gear synchros prior to me buying it. The oil looked clean, but I changed it with Rotella T6, seafoamed the engine, and changed it again. The car has probably had 3 oil changes within the last 1000 miles. Just got new tires too.

Runs great and holds boost like a champ!

Pretty much all she wrote. :cry:

That's not quite 244,000 miles.


I was kind of hoping to get the car to 400,000 km, but at this point the replacement 9-5 has done less than 5,000 km, so that was quite a stretch goal and not achievable.
