On Wednesday, October 30, 2008 at approximately 4:45 pm I experienced a sudden vehicle engine stop. This occurred on a residential 4-lane street while traveling in the right hand lane at approximately 30 mph. The vehicle was a 2001 SAAB 95 arc wagon. . The vehicle suddenly started to run rough and then the engine completely shut off. This caused me to have to glide the auto to the right hand side of the road where there was a curb. I thus remained in a lane of traffic with a disabled vehicle. The cause was a defective crank shaft position sensor. When this becomes inoperative the computer that controls engine management shuts down and disables the car. This required a tow to the dealer repair shop. And it required a new crank shaft sensor part to be installed. The old part is not available. The main irk about this is this is the second time I have replaced this part in 15 months. The original sensor that came wit the car when I purchased it new lasted 87,199 miles and 5. 5 years. The second sensor was replaced on July 16, 2007. The third sensor was replaced at 101,507 miles. . . A mere 15 months and 13 days with a mileage usage of 14,308 miles. Had this failure in October 2008 occurred just 5 minutes before when I was traveling on a six-lane interstate at 60 mph I would have had a serious problem drifting across several lanes of traffic in order to pull over for safety. I believe that SAAB has a supplier providing them with an inferior part.

The contact owns a 2000 SAAB 9-5. On Nov 18, 2008, the contact was informed that the vehicle had a faulty head gasket, which was replaced at that time. Six months later, the vehicle began jerking while driving 55 mph on the highway. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic, who stated that the ignition cassette was causing the vehicle to jerk. The manufacturer stated that the VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign id number 05v399000. The contact feels that the manufacturer should be responsible for the repairs since the failures were identical to those listed in the recall. The current mileage was 125,000 and failure mileage was 115,000. Updated 05/13/09. The consumer stated when she started the vehicle, it lunged forward and then stall. Updated 05/13/09.

The contact owns a 2002 SAAB 9-5 (gary fisher edition). The vehicle stalled intermittently without any prior warning while driving at various speeds.

Another voice: common sudden failure of SAAB electronic throttle body causing immediate stall at speed, in traffic. No crash. Undriveable "limp home" mode. Necessitated long tow and expensive repair. This item cited frequently on SAAB-related websites, but got me today! note that current recall is for a different part, equally safety-related.

My 2001 SAAB 9-5 stalled one day all of a sudden after I reached a shopping mall. I took it to a local SAAB dealer and they replaced my ignition system for a charge close to 600 dollars. They spoke to me that it was an isolated event. From the recall notice you release I realize that it was intrinsic manufacturing defect. Thank you all for the good work. I hope I will get a refund.
