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 9-5 Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 132010


  • 17,737 miles


Purchased a 2007 Saab 9-5 wagon in Feb 2010 with 14,000 miles still under both bumper to bumper original manufacturer warranty and pre-certified warranty. 5 weeks later in March 2010, car stalled on I-95 while traveling 70-75 miles per hour in South caroline at least 4 times with 2 different drivers. Thank goodness we were in South Carolina not at home in nyc area where I am sure we would have had an accident. Saab towed the car and said the throttle body needed replacement. The car still does not shift gears smoothly. And, from what I have read on the internet the powertrain/throttle body have been an issue with the Saab cars.
