Saab 9-3 on NHTSA December 2003 Recall List

Saab Cars USA, Inc.
Models:     Saab 9-3                   Year:      2004
Number Potentially Involved:  1,658
Dates of Manufacture:  November 2002 – November 2003
Noncompliance:  Certain convertible passenger vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 207, "Seating Systems." The backrest locking mechanism on some front seats may have been installed incorrectly. This could cause the seat back to fold forward in a frontal crash, resulting in injury to the driver and/or front seat passenger.
Remedy:   Dealers will inspect the vehicle’s front seats to determine if they are equipped with the improperly installed component. If either or both of the seats have this component, they will be replaced. The dealer may need to order a complete new seat or seats (including matching upholstery) and the parts may take up to two to four weeks to arrive. Saab will provide a rental car for the owner until the new seat(s) is (are) available and installed by the dealer. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during February 2004. Owners may contact Saab at 1-800-955-9007.
