RECALL: 200,000 Saab and Saturn cars recalled because of Takata air bags
General Motors is recalling about 200,000 Saab and Saturn cars. This is all connected to the larger recall involving Takata air bags.
The GM recall includes the Saab 9-3 from 2003 to 2011 and the Saab 9-5 from 2010 and 2011. The Saturn Astra from 2008 and 2009 is also part of the latest recall.
Dealers will replace the Takata inflators, and owners will get a letter telling them of the recall. The will have to wait for a second letter to confirm the parts are available for a repair.
Takata inflators can explode with too much force, sending shrapnel into the driver and passengers. There has already been about 5.4 million cars recalled in the United States.
