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.

2008 Saab 9-3 Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 102010

9-3 4-cyl

  • 22,000 miles


Saab 9-3, 2008, clutch failed at 22,000 miles. Saab said it was not warrantied and it was due to driver. We paid $1,300 for the repair. Clutch failed again at 33,000 miles. This time Saab paid for the repair and dealer said it was due to faulty parts in the entire clutch system. We want reimbursement for the first clutch repair.
