17 September 1999Saab Announces Voluntary Recall
NORCROSS, Ga., Sept. 17 -- Saab Cars USA, Inc., importer of Saab automobiles, announces a voluntary recall of 5,132 early 1999 Saab 9-3 Coupes and Convertibles with manual front-seat adjustment for replacement of a plastic sleeve and a cable in the seat mechanism. On a limited number of cars, Saab has found that failure of the "Easy Entry" cable in the front driver and passenger seats can cause the seat fore/aft adjustable mechanism to become unlocked. No accidents or injuries have been reported. The cable and plastic sleeve will be replaced with a redesigned cable assembly. U.S. owners of affected Saab 9-3 cars will be notified by mail beginning in October 1999, and will be asked to schedule a free installation at an authorized Saab dealership at their convenience.
