Complaint / review text:
My seat belt has failed on my 1999 Saab CSE. I reported this to my local Saab/GM dealer who refuses to repair the problem. There was a recall for this part in 2003, but my VIN was not included.in 1998, the Saab 900 had a seat belt retractor that never failed.in 1999, GM replaced that part with one made by Delco and the trouble began.in 2003 and 2004, GM replaced the defective seat belt retractors with identical Delco parts that also failed, when they could have used the Saab 900 device. They now have a recall on 2004 to 2011 Saab seat belt retractors that are still using the same defective design, when they could have used the Saab designed part. This was to save a couple of bucks per car. The GM ignition switch problem is not an isolated case, as the defective Saab seat belt retractor case shows. GM has been installing defective seat belt retractors in Saabs since 1999. Even when they realized that they had a problem in 2003, they did not remedy it. This reveals a company that has no regard for human life or driver safety!
