Description

An investigation by the San Francisco Examiner revealed that the Saab 9000 automobiles had a defective fuse box that could cause the luxury cars to lose power, emit smoke from the glove box and in some cases, catch fire, allegedly even when the engine was not running. The articles also showed that Saab knew of the defect and considered it a safety problem, but failed to tell consumers or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.(Feb. 5, 6, 12, 26, and Dec. 24, 1995)
