100,000 Mile Update

Postby TheDude » Wed Oct 17, 2012 11:10 am

So I have owned the vehicle for about 5 years and close to a 100,000 miles. Sad to say I did not know how to change my oil when I first bought it. However, here is a list of all DIY maintenance items completed and cost of ownership. This car has taught me a lot and I enjoy working on it. I look forward to continued ownership.

For those who want a summary: $5,490 over 100,000 miles of ownership is about 5.5 cents a mile. I believe gas is around 20 cents a mile, so I have to a quarter for every mile I drive. SHEESH! (So now I know what are that change is doing in my trunk!) :lol:

*fyi, been a little spotty on documenting oil changes.

Well done, James, but two water pumps in 14 months?

The first time I bought a generic Chinese water pump. Second time is a HEPU and still running strong.

You know Scott, I once told you I was shooting for 5 years of ownership to get my money out of the car. Now, I can't see not owning this Saab. It's a little beat up and has issues at times, but is a good car. Drives great, solid as a rock, plenty of power and good fuel economy.

Good on you, James. I hope you keep her. The 9-5 Aero is a fantastic car, and there aren't a lot of them around.
