Airbag Recall on 9-3 and 9-5 – Check your vehicle at the link below

  • GM Recall #:
  • 15041
  • Date Issued:
  • 3-Feb-2016

Recall Title:REPLACE DRIVER AIR BAG INFLATOR MODULE (non-HAH)

Recall Description:In some vehicles, the driver airbag inflator may experience an alteration over time, which could lead to overaggressive combustion in the event of an air bag deployment. This condition could create excessive internal pressure when the air bag is deployed, which could result in the body of the inflator rupturing upon deployment.

Safety Risk Description:In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the air bag cushion material, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants.

Repair Description:Dealers will replace the driver airbag inflator on Saab 9-3 and 9-5 vehicles subject to this recall, free of charge.


Recall Status: INCOMPLETE. REMEDY NOT YET AVAILABLE

FAQs

My vehicle has a recall, and the status reads: “INCOMPLETE. REMEDY NOT YET AVAILABLE.” What do I do next?

  1. GM is working quickly to finalize the necessary repair procedures and/or obtain parts. You will be notified via written communication when the repair procedure or parts are available. You can also check back at this website or with your preferred Certified Service Dealer.
  2. I have not received a recall letter in the mail. Can I still have my vehicle repaired?

    Yes, you can still have your vehicle repaired if the status field states “INCOMPLETE.” If your vehicle is a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, HUMMER or Saturn you should contact a Certified Service Dealer to schedule a service appointment or order parts. If your vehicle is a Saab, please contact an authorized Saab service centre.

    If the status field states, “INCOMPLETE. REMEDY NOT YET AVAILABLE,” GM will send you written communication once the remedy is available to properly repair your vehicle, or you can check back at this website or with your preferred Certified Service Dealer.

  3. I have had my vehicle repaired by a Certified Service Dealer or authorized Saab service centre, but the recall is still listed here. Why?

Club AGM and Board of Directors Update

The Saab Club of Canada held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday April 20. Some key items covered in the AGM include financial reports and elections to the Board of Directors (BOD).

This AGM saw some big changes int he composition of the BOD. Long-time Board Member and Club President, Scott Hutchings, did not run again. Neither did Board Member and Club Vice-President Fred Hopper. Their long service to the Club is much-appreciated and the BOD hopes that their experience and knowledge can still be tapped if required.

Please welcome two new Directors, both of whom have already taken active roles in the Club and will be a great asset on the BOD:

  • Chris Despond
  • Simon Newness

In addition, three existing Directors stayed on:

  • Richard Clayton
  • Stan East
  • Ed Treijs

The Club’s new Vice President is Martin Wojtowicz. He is not on the Board of Directors.

For those interested in the constitutional details, the Vice President is elected at the AGM by the attending Club members, and does not have to be a member of the BOD. The President is elected by the new BOD at its first meeting after the AGM.

Saabs are useful cars

I like the fact that Saabs are designed to do stuff. Mine came with sturdy factory roof racks, and of course Saab allows decent towing capacity. They don’t need a turbo to be useful cars.

We took this lot 100 km to Wasaga Beach, driving at 80-90 km/h with no problems. Fuel consumption climbed to 9.6 L/100 km though.
