Model News

Since the Saab 9-5 was revised for 2006, there are few changes for 2007. A 2.3L turbocharged in-line four powers both the sedan and wagon. The Aero trim adds sport seats and suspension, and metallic interior trim. The Visibility Package bundles rain-sensing wipers, a rear camera, and xenon headlights.


Value Writeup

The Saab 9-5 sedan and wagon offer a unique Scandinavian front-wheel-drive, luxury experience for the discriminating shopper. Both body types boast Saab's 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers V6 performance with the frugality of a four-cylinder engine. In addition to the powerplant, safety and comfort are what separate the 9-5 from its competition.


Model Highlights

All 2007 Saab 9-5s come standard with a host of safety and convenience features. Of course you'll find both front and side air bags, but head curtain air bags are also standard. Saab's patented Active Head Restraints actually move forward in a rear end collision to cup your head and reduce incidents of whiplash. ABS brakes with discs at all four corners provide safe stops, traction control assists in slippery conditions, and an electronic stability program helps prevent spins.

Both the 9-5 sedan and wagon have the same 260-horsepower 140-c.i. four-cylinder engine that also makes 258 lb-ft of torque from 1,900-4,000 rpms. A five-speed manual transmission or five-speed automatic with four shift programs are available, and both help apply plenty of mid-range torque for handy acceleration.

Every 9-5 has leather seats that are electrically adjustable in the front. A cabin air filter works with the automatic climate control, and even the glovebox is refrigerated. The leather-wrapped steering wheel is adjustable for both reach and height, and has controls for the audio system. Aero models add sport seats, a lowered ride height, and metallic interior trim.

The 9-5 impressed with its ability to corner at a very high limit, and the seats proved to be both extremely comfortable for a long day of driving and nicely bolstered to hold you in place. Navigation and OnStar are optional, and a Visibility Package adds xenon headlights, rain sensing windshield wipers, rear park assist, and auto-dimming exterior mirrors.

Yes, the key is still on the floor console, and you need to put the manual transmission 9-5 in reverse before you can remove the key, but Saab continues to offer a fine driving vehicle for those searching for something a bit different.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 Saab 9-3 vehicles manufactured May 31, 2002, to February 15, 2011, 2006-2009 Saab 9-5 vehicles manufactured June 7, 2005, to May 28, 2009, and 2008-2009 Saturn Astra vehicles manufactured April 11, 2007, to July 24, 2008. Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator on Saab 9-3 and 9-5 vehicles and will replace the driver's frontal airbag module on Saturn Astra vehicles, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Owners were notified of the recall on March 23, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Saab customer service at 1-800-955-9007 or Saturn customer service at 1-800-553-6000. GM's number for this recall is 28810.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
