#6 - Engine Stall problem of the 2003 SAAB 9-3
Brand new 2003 SAAB 9-3 arc just stalls. My engine has stalled for no reason numerous times. This problem has been happening since the days after I got the car.

#7 - Engine Stall problem of the 2003 SAAB 9-3
The car involved is a 2003 SAAB 9-3. Crash happened when the problem occurred. This is my second complaint. I had originally filed complaint 10041666 a few weeks ago. Now the problem with my SAAB stalling has become worse. I was travel in traffic, when the vehicle stalled while in traffic. The engine stalling caused me to rear end the vehicle in front me. Which in turn caused a four car accident. There were no injuries reported, but now my problem is much more severe. I have contacted SAAB about this problem (much like I did the first time) and noting is being done to help me. I am now stuck with a defective vehicle that stalls all the time, and is as far as I am concerned totally useless and a huge safety problem. The accident caused over $15000 in damage to my SAAB alone, along with deployment of the air bags. I am really surprised that I was not killed or severely hurt in the accident. The NHTSA needs to step up to the plate and help out all the SAAB 9-3 owners here. . . These cars are not safe, and the represent a very large problem just waiting to happen. This engine stall issue occurred Sunday, October 19, 2003.
