General Motors' Saab unit is recalling 55,000 1995 model year 900 cars worldwide to fix an electronic control unit that could corrode in humid climates and deploy the airbag, Reuters reported.

"It's mostly an issue in more humid, more tropical climates. We began to see it in the Far East and Asia-Pacific markets," Saab spokesman Kevin Smith told Reuters.

Smith said he was unaware of any accidents or injuries resulting from deployed airbags, Reuters added.

Dealers will fix the problem electronic units free of charge, Reuters said.
