I have a 2007 Saab 9-7X with a faulty fuel gauge. There are many articles related to this problem and I would like to submit my complaint. The fuel gauge fails immediately when I start the engine. After several minutes, it then reads erratically. If you could reply on how I am to take care of this with GM, it would be appreciated. My vehicle has 102,000 miles on it and I am the original owner.

Fuel gauge does not display the correct fuel level. Fuel gauge will indicate full when tank is empty, or empty when tank is full. Has caused a check engine light on numerous occasions.

Erratic fuel gauge. At times gauge will read empty when tank is near full or will read full when fuel tank is half full.

  • 50,074 miles
Less than 100 miles after the manufacturer warranty ended, after filling the gas tank, the gauge dropped to "empty" and the gas light came on. After driving for several miles the gauge started fluctuating between full and empty, and seemed to be accurate after a while. This continued for a few weeks, but eventually stopped fluctuating and now always shows empty, regardless of the amount of fuel in the tank.

The first time I noticed a problem I was at the gas station. My fuel gauge indicated the vehicle was close to empty and needed gas. The vehicle has a 22-gal tank, but the pump stopped at 10 gallons. It would not take any more. I thought that was odd. I had never had any other problems with the vehicle. Since the problem started the vehicle will only take 10-12 gallons of gas. My husband thinks there is more gas in the tank, but IżM not taking any chances. I reset the trip meter to zero each time I get gas. My vehicle gets approx. 18 mpg. I used to fill up at about 330 miles on the trip meter. One day, upon getting in the vehicle, the low fuel light was on. The vehicle had been driven approximately 216 miles. The gas hand came up to half a tank and then quickly began to drop to empty. The miles range (how many miles you need until you get gas) just starts quickly ticking down the miles. This has happened several times. Now when I get near 216 miles driven I get gas. There is no stalling or anything like that. I have not run out of gas. I get gas immediately when the gauge starts dropping and the miles range starts ticking down. I make sure I hit the trip meter so I don't run out of gas. It sounds like a gas sensor or something like that. I will take it to the dealership next week to see what is wrong. I believe there needs to be a recall for this item. Can you help? this problem started around June 10, 2011.

On numerous occasions while driving my vehicle, it has registered half a tank to a quarter tank of fuel. While driving, with no warning, the vehicle has stalled, and later was determined to be out of gas. It has occurred at least 4 occasions in the past 6-8 months, always while I was on the highway.
