 Description of the problemMy car was built in 2002 as well as others reported, i purchased it used 3 years ago with 64k miles. My direct ignition control in 2003 9-5 linear sedan 2. 3t ceased. Upon research, my dic is the original part 9197559 tk3. 6 2000-2002 are recalled and 'some' 2003 vin's. With the over abundance of dic failures with the exact same part number, these need to be recalled as a whole. Upon removal of the dic, the engine is leaking at the seams of the head from where the bolts are located, inside the dic and engine section is perfectly clean. Bolts in the head of the engine loose, 1 was lifted out enough to just remove straight out. Car blows blueish smoke when it was starting, switches are defective (gm known issue), oil / engine / head known issues, suspension known issues (among other serious saab failures). I have spent thousands of dollars on this vehicle since purchase. The known recalls must be expanded to include the parts, not just 'year' or 'specific vin'. This was supposed to be a safe, reliable car but instead is causing serious financial issues. Please help the owners all over the world, we should not have to pay for all of this.. We already paid for their 'bailout'! Sincerely~ can not take any more repairs!!! *tt
