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.

NHTSA — Tires Problems

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2008 Aura’s issues with brakes, such as worn out rotors, isn’t as severe as the prior model year, but let’s just not start awarding them any brake awards just yet. Does that even exist? “The Brakies”?

One thing the 2008 does share with the 2007 is a recall of a busted gear shifter cable which can make it look like your car is in park, when the transmission is still engaged. You can only imagine what kind of fun that causes.

I purchased a set of four new kumho tires; the next day while accelerating after a full stop at a yield sign, the driver side front tire suddenly decompressed. The wheel cover broke and traveled across the road into a field. The tire bead apparently unsealed. The car stopped safely and there is no other damage other tan the tire and wheel cover.

Aura

  • 4,000 miles
Purchased a 2008 Saturn Aura xr fitted with Goodyear LS2 P225/50R18 tires. Car/tires has 4,000 miles, noticed a sidewall bulge on one tire..took car to Goodyear dealer, manager stated bulge due to high impact damage. I don't know what his definition of "high impact is"? vehicle has never been off road conditions, only normal city driving. Vehicle has never exceeded 45 miles per hour (to date)...never hitting hole/holes to cause damage. Very concerned about quality and/or defects in tire...
