US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 99V246
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 5,132


Summary:
On certain passenger vehicles equipped with manual front seats and manufactured from March 4 through Oct.17, 1998, failures of the "Easy Entry" cable in the front driver or passenger manual seats can cause the seat fore/aft adjustable mechanism to be unlocked. Since the anchor points for the lap portion of the front safety belts are attached to the seat assembly, release of the fore/aft locking mechanism reduces the restraint capability of the safety belts in a crash.

Remedy:
Dealers will install a new cable and spring assembly. Owner notification began Oct. 15, 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Saab at 1-770-279-0100.

Dates of Manufacture:
March - October 1998

Manufacturer Recall Number:
710
