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.

2007 Saab 9-3 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 032009


  • 42,000 miles


Low beam head lamp failure in 2007, Saab 9-3 2.0T sport sedan. In 42K miles I have replaced the head lamps 4 times. It usually occurs only on the left head lamp. This past Saturday, Oct 3, 2009, I lost the left one in the morning and the right one in the evening. I had no low beams and had to drive 25 miles home, at night time with considerable city traffic, with my high beams. The dealer has explained to me that there is an electrical surge when starting the car that can blow the filaments in the bulbs because they come on as drls when the key turned to the on position. Their "fix" for this is to reprogram the car to disable the drls and auto turn on of the headlights.
