Saab intends to recall up to 300,000 cars

Saab plans to recall almost 300,000 cars worldwide because of a problem with the ignition system.

The recall will affect gas-engine 9-3 and 9-5 models made in 2000, 2001, and 2002, according to the daily Goteborgs-Posten and news agency TT.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has found problems in the ignition system that can lead to overheating, Orjan Aslund, a spokesman for General Motors Corp., which owns Saab, told. He added that the problem had not caused any injuries yet.

A total of 287,987 cars will be recalled, costing Saab more than $77 million, the AP reports.

An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
