Body, Interior & Misc., August 15, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles first sold, or currently registered, in certain states where salt is used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because fluid may enter the driver's door module, causing corrosion that could result in a short in the circuit board. A short may cause the power door lock and power window switches to function intermittently or become inoperative. The short may also cause overheating, which could melt components of the door module, producing an odor, smoke, or a fire. As of this time, the remedy plan is still being finalized and a notification schedule has not been determined. The GM recall number is 12180.

2006 Saab 9-7x Reviews

Had an '01 Lexus RX300 before this. I like the ride and handling in the Trollblazer much better. This is a really underrated vehicle. It's built on the GMT 360 platform like the Tailblazer and Envoy (and others), but the handling and ride were modified by Saab engineers. It sitts about 1 inch lower. The interior is excellent!

It has proven to be a very solid car. The only significant issue has been the power windows in sub zero temps. The don't like to come back up in really cold times at parking ramps and drive throughs.

Good in the snow.
