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 9-5 Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 262011


  • 46,172 miles


A recall was previously issued for Saab direct ignition cassette failures for model years 2000 through 2002. My 2004 Saab 9-5 arc, which has 46,180 miles on it, had to have the di cassette replaced today due to failure. My model year should have been included in this recall due to the limited (less than reasonable) life of the part.

9-5 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

On numerous occasions, our 2004 Saab 95 would not start. Later it would start. Saab refuses to acknowledge there is a problem. Nothing has been done. There have been 5 instances beginning in may of 2004.
