Saab Takata Air Bag Recalls

More Saab models listed concerning Takata Air Bag Recalls on National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website on 2/12/2016

Check for your vehicle make and model on the list here

Saabs are listed in the General Motors (GM) section:
2005 Saab 9-2x
2003-2011 Saab 9-3
2010-2011 Saab 9-5

You can verify if your specific car is listed using the VIN Vehicle Id Number tool on the website above:  https://vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/

2 of ours are due for the recall / driver’s side airbag replacement, but also listed with a status of no remedy being available yet.

I suppose we must trust that GM will track us down when replacement airbags are available, and when the website above says dealer will replace no charge, I hope they won’t make us use a GM dealer such as Chevy or Buick etc.

We are picky enough about who touches our cars I would gladly pay to have our old Saab dealer do the replacement.

Seriously, no thanks to Mr. Goodwrench doing it no charge, I’ll pass if at all possible on a car dealer and tech who do not know whatever there is to know about working on Saabs, been there, done that only a few times and learned our lesson about people who assure us they know what they are doing and damaging our cars, even people claiming to be so called Swedish car or Saab specialists. 😦
