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.

2009 Saturn Aura Owner Comments

Been having problems with the transmission since I bought the car new. It shifts in 1st and 2nd fine but going into 3rd or 5th gear it will shift to neutral and then shift hard into gear. Dealership could not replicate problem but am still having it. Then recently been having a strong smell of gas from the rear of the car at the rear doors. Looked underneath the car and saw that the tank had a wet spot from fuel leaking for a while. Have never over filled my car with gas. I did drop the tank and come to fine out the whole top of the tank is covered in gas. It has been leaking for a long while.
