This is in no way a breaking news for most, but for this dealer and customer, it’s is a great news story. On a monthly basis for the past year since Saab’s re-introduction to Canada, I have been in contact with Amedeo Palazzo, General Manager of Saab of Edmonton. We mostly talk about business and the state of Saab. Since I came to Saabs United, he has called me more to see what I know because in Canada, we don’t get a lot of updates. Saab of Edmonton had the only black on black full load 9-5 Aero with rear seat DVD package, just an incredible car with a list price of $72,319. This car is to die for, just an incredibly beautiful work of art. The other day Amedeo called me and said guess what? Naturally I said, what? He proceeded to tell me that they had just sold this car to a customer that was in love with it. This customer was so in love with it that they provided this letter:
A Real Saab Story:
Here I am on Valentine’s Day 2012, picking up my new Saab 9-5 Aero. A love affair of many years, this is my third 9-5. My wife also drives her second 9-3 Aero. After a trial separation as Saab was in and out of controversy, I moved back to Saab with a 9-3 of my own. While the current state of affairs is far from certain, I am certain that this is the car for me for some time to come. My new friend Amedeo at Saab of Edmonton & I look forward to a lasting relationship and many valentines to share in the future.
My plate LES 695 says it all.
His plate shows his love for the car, Les has a 6cylinder 9-5 (LES 695). The customer also opted for an upgraded set of wheels. This is for sure the only 2011 9-5 of it’s kind on the street’s of Canada. Congrats to Les and Saab of Edmonton on this purchase, I have no doubt that you will enjoy this car for years to come and your purchase and comments show that Saab is something that becomes a part of you especially after as you say “a trial separation”, you came back.
