There was a recall just recently - I think it was for 89-90, it did not cover '91 (I have a '91 9000 T). It did not involve self-ignition of the air bag but rather failure to ignite - I belive because of potential corrosion at one of the underhood connectors. Look on Saabnet.com, there were a bunch of posts. Joshua Greenbaum <jsgreennopsamh.edu> wrote: >I haven't heard anything from them about my 91 9000.
