Whether or not you could wrangle this repair to establish that it did not meet the warranty... I don't know. It's not common to see that tact used here. If a lot of cars fail in the same way, then a lawyer will start a class action suit and eventually the company will settle out of court. Gm has always had a "deny everything" policy. Looks like it's finally being applied at Saab.
