Takata recall I am unable to find a Saab dealer in anchorage Alaska to perform the recall work. The suggested dealer does not do service work on vehicles.

Takata recall I got a notice over 6 months ago that my car is unsafe and to not use the pass front seat. I have a family of 4 so how is this possible. I was told I would get another notice, when my part was available and so far nothing has been done. The amount of time this is taking is unacceptable. My wife, myself and two small children are at risk!

Takata recall parts unavailable: This is taking way too long, we have been unable to put passengers in the from passenger seat for over a year. GM needs to prioritize getting all affected vehicles repaired. I know that other Saab 9-2X vehicles have been repaired, why not ours? unacceptable!

This is for two events: 1) I purchased veh new in 2006. In 2012 I had just serviced w/oil change, check up at 51000 mi. One morning, engine made a sound like pebbles hitting it, began to smoke like on fire, all lights came on, engine ceased. I had to tow the veh and to purchase rebuilt engine as was told engine destroyed. GM would not honor dealer warranty. Saab would not honor warranty. No local dealer would replace/repair engine. I tried jerry seiner, ken garf, mark miller in ut and kachina and legends in AZ; no one would honor warranty when vehicle was just in shop for full checkup and oil change and deemed road worthy. My veh had always been serviced at dealer and garaged. All maintenance done one would replace engine. Ridiculous to cease at 51,000 mi. 2) on 10/13/2014 I have 72,000 mi on veh and was rear-ended while stopped at lite. Airbags did not deploy and I slid into steering wheel sustaining injury. Airbags should have deployed with the impact (hit by veh going approx 45 mph).

Nov 072014

9-2X 4-cyl

  • 115,000 miles
I had been driving my car on a city street for < 2 minutes at ~ 30 mph. The red warning triangle with ! cane on. Within 10 seconds there was a bang under the drivers seat, in about 5 seconds the passenger airbag deployed breaking the windshield and dashboard. In another 5 or so seconds the drivers' side airbag deployed. There was no reason for the deployment, no collision, dry streets, no other mechanical problem.
