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 #1

During the time frame that I first received the notice of the recall of the front seat belt retractors for my vehicle the rear seat belt retractors (left-side passenger behind the driver) on my vehicle had failed to retract properly. When I initially took my vehicle in to replace the driver side seat belt retractors I inquired as to the rear seat belt retractors and I was told that there was no recall for the rear seat belts at that time however, I should continue to monitor Saab website for any additional seatbelt recalls. As of date I have not located any additional recall notices from Saab regarding the seat belts on the 2004 9-3 aero. For safety reasons I no longer use the lest side passenger seat in my vehicle as now the seat belt does not retract at all.
