[URL="http://autoblog.com/make/saab"]Saab[/URL] has announced that it is recalling around 4,400 9-3 models for defective fuel pumps. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration says that the vehicles made have been built with pumps that did not meet the correct specifications, and as a result, the pumps may seize, causing the engine to stall. NHTSA believes that the defect could potentially increase the risk of an accident. As far as we know, no incidents have been reported as a result of the issue.

Saab will replace the fuel pumps free of charge, and the campaign is expected to get under way on or around February 18. Owners may contact Saab directly at 1.800.955.9007 or visit the [URL="http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/recallresults.cfm?start=1&SearchType=DrillDown&typ e=VEHICLE&year=2011&make=SAAB&model=9-3&component_id=0&TYPENUM=1&SUBMIT=Retrieve%20Recal ls&prod_id=1048795&PrintVersion=YES"]NHTSA site[/URL] for more information on the recall.
