Another automotive recall has been announced; this time it’s Saab, which is recalling approximately 4,400 9-3 models from the 2010 and 2011 model years.

The problem? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the cars affected were originally fitted with fuel pumps that did not meet the correct specifications. Consequently, they could fail, causing the engine to stall, which NHTSA believes could ultimately result in a crash.

The recall is slated to begin around February the 18th 2011; affected owners are encouraged to contact Saab Cars North America Inc. at 1-800-955-9007. Saab has issued a Campaign number for the recall: 15029 and will have dealers replace the affected pumps free of charge. Concerned owners can also call NHTSA’s traffic hotline at 1-888-327-4236 for any questions regarding the recall.
