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.

2006 Saab 9-7X Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 112010


  • 55,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Saab 97X. The contact stated that while driving 45 mph both side curtain air bags deployed without a crash occurring. The front driver and passenger pretension on the side of the vehicle broke as well. The contact drove onto the emergency lane and saw no damage relative to a crash. The contact was able to continue driving and notified the manufacturer who had the vehicle inspected by an investigator. The investigator found two very small scratches on the rear differential which was the reason that the manufacturer refused to repair the vehicle. The diagnostic testing did not determine what caused the air bags to deploy. The side curtain air bags deploying could have injured small children. The failure mileage was 55,000.
