Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2008 Saturn Astra Owner Comments

Bought 08 Astra Jan 27, drove to AZ. Car drove fantastic. On 6/18/2008 I took it to Saturn because I kept hearing a high pitch chirping noise upon acceleration. It only makes this sound if the ac is on. It sounds like the belt is loose the tech told me it was because the engine is not strong enough to handle the ac and everything else at one time. Like I said it did not do this when I bought. He told me to monitor the noise. It is still making sound along with a deep rattle also coming from the front of car.
