After about 18 months of waiting, I was finally able to get replacements for the defective Takata air bags in my 2008 9-3 convertible and my wife’s 2010 9-3x sportcombi in the past week. GM handled the air bag replacement in my wife’s car, even though it is a SWAN model. Apparently, safety recalls remained with GM even after the sale to SWAN.
If you have been waiting, it’s probably time to find the nearest authorized SAAB service center and see if you can schedule an appointment. They needed about one week’s notice to get the parts in.
SAABS have always been fun and safe, and its nice to know that the safety is back!
