In the affected vehicles, the fuel pump may seize and fail, causing the engine to stall and increasing the risk of a crash. The vehicles affected by the recall were built between June and October 2010. There have been no reported accidents or injuries because of the defect, Saab says.
Saab will begin notifying owners Feb. 18 and replace the fuel pumps at no charge. For more info, owners can call Saab at 800-955-9007 or NHTSA’s safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
