    Saab recall clearance letters

    [FONT=verdana]Hi All, [/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana]I just wanted to know if anyone had any idea how and from where i can obtain recall clearance letters for a Saab 9-5 that I am importing from US. I searched online and called the GM head office here in Canada but apparently they have nothing to do with Saab vehicles anymore.[/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana]I think due to the less than friendly nature of the split they were even unwilling to provide me with any information as to who would handle such queries now. [/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana]SO has anyone jumped through these hoops before, and gotten the clearance letters. Any help would be much appreciated thanks !!!![/FONT]

    Have you tried going to a (former) SAAB dealer in the US? They should be able to run a report for your VIN that says which recalls were done on your vehicle.

    That's what I did when I sold my 9-5 to SaabScott in Toronto. A Saab dealer provided me with a print out of a VIN report that stated there were no open recalls on the car. This met the requirements for Canadian customs.

    Call Robert in Service at Saab of Memphis. He'd hook you up I think.
