2006-11 Saab 9-3, 9-5 added to Takata recall

General Motors has issued a recall for the 2006-2011 model-year Saab 9-3 and 9-5 as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. Affected vehicles are fitted with potentially faulty driver-side front airbags that are susceptible to degradation as a result of moisture intrusion. If the condition occurs and the vehicle is involved in a collision that triggers the airbag, the metal inflator housing could rupture under excessive internal pressure, sending metal fragments into the cabin.

That’s according to industry journal Automotive News, which reports this week that Swedish aerospace company Saab AB is no longer entertaining any potential for the Saab brand to be used by NEVS, which bought the failed car maker’s assets in early 2012.
