Recalls

Has anyone completed either the airbag or control arm recall? I am wondering if I need to go get this taken care of and how to go about it.

I am confused about the airbag recall deal. Is it only for the 2005 9-2x?

Thanks!

Re: Recalls

Call your local dealer with your VIN, they will look int up to see if they have been completed for your vehicle. I had the air bag recall done, no problems. The CA recall is going to be a coating of cosmoline unless they are so bad they're about to fail.

Re: Recalls

Dealer may or may not know what you are talking about, best to go to the Saab Parts NA site to find your closest service center.  Mine was a Saab independent....

Re: Recalls

Once you find an authorized repair center, the airbag replacements takes about an hour. I had mine done last summer.

Re: Recalls

You'll have to find a GM dealership to have it done at. I had it done at the local Chevy dealership here in Sacramento.

Re: Recalls

Nope.  Go to the website i linked above and search around your location.  Here in metro Denver, it was John Elway Chevrolet for a long time, but now it is a series of independent shops.  Here in Boulder it's East of Sweden, a Saab specialist, but they are doing control arms and airbags for 92x's.
