problem #3

While driving the ignition switch turns to the off position suddenly. This happens when there are any vibrations in the car such as when I reach into and shut the center counsel, shut the glovebox, when anything even lightly grazes the key fob, when a ballon popped in my car and even when I sneeze in the car! when this happens the car completely looses power such as lights (interior and exterior), power steering, speed and basically all controls of the car are lost. The car ignition has moved to off at many speeds including 65 mph on the freeway, 50 mph, 35 mph, 25 mph and even while backing out of the driveway. This is extremely dangerous! I can't drive on the freeway because I am deathly scared my car will shut down when I hit a bump in the road. If that was to happen I would be dead in a second! this faulty ignition could cause great harm to not only myself yet to innocent people on the road. This is the second ignition switch I have put in my Saab and it has 94.5K miles on it. Saab's are famous for their electrical ignition issues and I beg the government to please step in and demand a recall. Best regards, jennifer horne

This has occurred on multi occasions. Usually in cold weather the car usually while braking will report a complete failure of the brake, anti-lock brakes, and stability control. Speedometer quits working, and message appears to come to a complete stop. Once you stop and turn off the car, and then restart all messages disappear and car returns to normal operation. The system may lead to an accident. This is the five incident over the last two years.

The contact owns a 2007 Saab 9-3 sport combi wagon. The contact was driving 25 mph uphill when the vehicle abnormally accelerated to 40 mph. The vehicle ceased unintended acceleration as soon as it hit 40 mph. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection yet the failure was unable to be duplicated. The vehicle was not repaired. The contact stated the failure had occurred at least twice. The current and failure mileage was approximately 27,000.
