One year ago, they were with their new car (it was used Saab 9-3) crossed all America. Now, They celebrate 1 year of SportCombi ownership with this little write-up about “Le Beaglewagon” – and that’s another good Saab story.
This road adventure Dallas Hansen and Solange Deschatres are described in the video blog Across America in the Saab 9-3 XWD Sportcombi.
Now, after a year of ownership, Dallas Hansen gave his view of these change in his blog post “We ditched our reliable 2011 Hyundai Elantra for a quirky 2009 Saab 9³ wagon. Here’s what happened.
And that’s not all, after the first Saab he got another – his dream car – ’99 Saab 9-3 Viggen
And as you can read in the blog post, they did not regret. This is the essence of his experience:
“Despite having cost us over $4000 in parts and repairs in under a year, we still love the Beaglewagon. It’s comfortable, practical, powerful, handles well, and has quite a lovely exhaust note. Looking around, I don’t think it’s even possible to get a better looking wagon—a newer Volvo V60 Polestar would be nice, and so would a 2014-ish Cadillac CTS-V Wagon, but they both run around $60,000 and the latter gets only 12mpg around town.” commented Dallas
Also, I recommend all of his texts on the blog Dallas Hansen.
