Anyone aware of a re-call to address possible paintwork problems on 9000's 96 model year onwards, my specialist seems to think that there was a recall in respect of problems with the paint not adhereing to the metal on the lower parts of the door's below the side trim bar, something about electrostatics causing the paint to lift?

Some one (Leon??) mentioned something a year or so ago about:-

Taking a stanley knife to a square of paintwork in a hatched pattern.

Firmly rubbing a piece of making tape onto the paint

Removing the masking tape

If the paint lifts with the masking tape then the car needs a strip and respray

If the paint doesn't lift...you need that panel repainting.

Sounds like the symptons mentioned above are the ones my specialist was refering to, I wrote to SAAB GB to ask if my 9000 had been re-called for this problem and they claimed they were unaware of the problem, so I just wondered if anyone out there owned a 9000 that was re-called?
