1 million kilometres with a Saab 9-5!

1 million kilometres with a Saab 9-5

Sjef Kuijpers lives in the southern part of the Netherlands in the town of Veghel, province of North Brabant. He has been a customer at Autotess in Deventer for maintenance and repairs for his Saab 9-5. A few months ago, he parked his car at their business with exactly 1 million kilometres on the odometer.


It is about a 1998 Saab 9-5 2.3t 170hp with a manual transmission. The owner drives about 100.000 kilometres every year. The engine was converted to run on LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas or Propane), a common automotive fuel in the Netherlands. 

1.000.000 kilometres is 621.371 miles. Quite an amazing accomplishment for a 14 year old car. But not just any car. It’s a Saab.
