One Saab 9-5 is definitely saved :)

Remember that miserable Saab 9-5 SportCombi that was destined for the junkyard? A Swedish man puts out an ad for his used Saab with the headline: “Saab 9–5 estate: you will regret buying it” where he lists all the problems with his old car. The ad becomes an instant hit and gets hundreds of thousands of views. So, what happened next with the car? Here’s a film about it.

Orio kindly asked us to help out, along with Högdalens Bil- & Skadecenter, to bring the car back to life in “Ida Edition“. The result speaks for itself!

  • My new to me 2003 9-5 wagon needs this done. I really like it and want to save it rather than junk it. Honestly its not as bad as the one in the film, but it still needs a pretty good restoration. Its kinda funny saying things like restoring a 2003. Doesn’t seem like 2003 was that long ago, but I guess it was!!! My main issue is someone used the rear tie down hook to pull something and it split the weld and the seem sealer where the spare tire well meets the rear of the trunk.
