Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Saab 9-3 Owner Comments

problem #2

May 152008


  • 99,999 miles


2004 9-3 convertible, aero. Had developed a sound from the fan behind the glove box. Usually begins to get louder when A/C is on. Taken to my local dealership where I informed it was normal "wear & tear." Cost to fix was estimated at $500. This is my third Saab convertible and it's only problem after 100, 000 miles.

The keyless entry and alarm system have not been working. They started slowing down in working, but then the keyless entry module (the actual key) just stopped. I changed the battery on the key, yet it still does not work. This has been going on for so long.
