There was a NHSTA recall on previous years for this problem. Is was supposed to have been fixed by using the grease. I'm sorry. But I just cannot accept having a car do this. The problem with trying to free the wheels myself is that - according to NHSTA - sometimes the wheel bolt and hubs are damaged by the corrosion. I just feel more comfortable having the dealer free the wheels, and then I will rotate them. But, if I were the dealer, I would check and make sure that customers don't have stuck wheels when I have their car in for service. It may be a very small issue to some of you, but to me, I see visions of being stuck in the middle of Nebraska with my family in the car and a flat tire and I would be struggling with that flimsy jack. Honestly, it is enough to make me not want to buy another Saab. In my 35 years of car ownership, the only other car that did this was a FIAT that I used for several winters in Montreal, while I was at college. That was my last FIAT.
