problem #2

Mar 252014

9-7X 8-cyl

  • 120,000 miles


In March 2014, while operating the vehicle, the warning bell sounded, and an engine light (with down arrow) illuminated. The driver information center displayed "stabilitrak off", and the car immediately slowed from 45mph to 15mph. The speed of the vehicle would not pass 25mph, and there wasn't even enough power to climb a small hill. After deploying the hazard indicator, and pulling over, the engine was shut off. Upon waiting 2-3 minutes and restarting the engine, the problem did not recur. Since then, the problem has recurred at least 3 dozen times, and it is becoming more frequent. This fault can easily have catastrophic results.

  • 68,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Saab 9-7X. While driving approximately 45-50 mph, the contact stated that the check engine light, engine down arrow light and stability track light illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle suddenly slowed down. The contact was only able to drive 25-30 mph. The vehicle was diagnosed at an auto parts store. The code indicated that the throttle body was the cause of the failure. The failure was intermittent at first but progressed and was constant. The part for repair was backordered. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was 68,000 and the current mileage was 68,500.
