This "design flaw" requires two simple washers to correct and Saab issued a Service Bulletin not long after it was discovered. FWIW, it only affects certain drivers in certain driving positions. This is the reason it was not discovered before the release of the car. You can make the correction yourself if you like for about $.50. This correction was made for FREE in the first 4 years of 50K miles by Saab. Don't turn the blame for the fact that someone you bought a car didn't bother to have it done into blame on Saab. Saab found the problem, issued a fix, and made those repairs when requested. > I had been interested in owning a Saab for many years, going way back >to the days when they had two-stroke engines. Alas, that fixation has >been cured by actually owning one. You really, really need to sell your Saab and buy yourself an old Toyota. I'm sure you'd be much happier. Bob
