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

Nov 142004

9-3 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


While accelerating from 60 mph on the highway, the accelerator pedal became stuck. This caused the vehicle to accelerate up to 80 mph before the consumer was able to reach down while driving and lift the accelerator pedal by hand. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, and they informed the consumer that the carpet caused the accelerator pedal to stick. The consumer did not agree with the dealers evaluation. The consumer lifted the accelerator off of the floor and indicated that he would have had to remove the carpet first if it was in the way. Only the accelerator was stuck.
