The contact owns a 2006 Saab 9-7X. While driving, the fuel gauge failed to display the proper fuel level and the check engine warning light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the fuel level sensor needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 55,000.

9-7X 8-cyl

After fueling up my tank my gas light stayed on along with my engine light. I took it to a local auto parts store to get it scanned and it ended up being my fuel sensor. The needle floats between full and empty as I drive down the road. I have a family of 8 and 5 of us able to drive. I would like my vehicle to work properly so one of my family members do not become stranded because of this well know faulty fuel sensor. (which seems to be a manufacturing flaw) I work with others that had the same issue but with related vehicles all with the gmt360 platform and had their sensors replaced which General Motors covered but I am wondering why the '06 Saab 97X does not have a recall.

I stopped to get gas today and filled my tank all the way up. Upon re-starting the vehicle that fuel gauge said it was completely empty. I drove a few miles and the check engine light came on. After 40 miles or so, the fuel gauge went back to full but the check engine light stayed on. Then for the next 10-15 miles the fuel gauge jumped back and forth from empty to full. The check engine light never went off. I am worried it is going to shut down on my on the highway like some other people have said! this scares me... and it only just turned over 60K miles today! GM please step in and fix this problem before people start dying... seriously! this is dangerous and I am nervous to drive my Saab now.

My vehicle has a very strong gas odor inside and outside. You can walk by the rear of vehicle and smell gas. The gas odor is really strong when I put gas in SUV.

Have 2006 Saab 97X....fuel gauge gives false reading causing one to run out of gas......fuel gauge will go from full to empty to a third full to out of gas back to full....very frustrating. Dealer said there was no recall so would cost out of pocket around 500 dollars to fix....not right!!!!!!!!!!!or safe!!!!!!!!!!!!
