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.

While driving, the car suddenly reduced speed, engine light comes on stating to service traction. Had the car repaired. It happened twice since, each time a day after picking up the car from the dealership. The last time, Wednesday, October 28th, I was making a left turn, the car suddenly reduced speed, lights on. This is very dangerous. Contacted GM, no help at all!

This is the second time in the last year I lost use of my steering wheel. The first time, I was backing up and lost all control of my steering. I did not report it because there was not a warning light. Today, Sept. 3,2015 I was driving through the parking lot of the school (May 2 to 5 mph) when I lost all control of the steering. I wasn't able to turn the wheel either way, it was completely locked up. I stopped the car and turned off the ignition. After a copy of minutes, I restarted the car and it was fine. It was very scary knowing I could not control the car. I noticed older vehicles had the same issue and they had a recall. I believe the 2009 Aura should be investigated for the same recall.

There are 4 recalls out for my car, and I have never received any letters to get the work done. The summer of 2013 the car stalled on me and I had to get it towed and pay to replace a wiring harness. I'm not sure if this was due to a part that was recalled or not. If it is, I would like to know if I can get refunded for it. Also, right before winter 2013 my remote starter quit working; the engine light is on; I'm getting a false warning light for the tire pressure; I have heard a bing noise like the door was open because I was using the turn signal when driving; my left front door speaker comes on whenever it feels like it; the lights have blink on and off and my car almost wouldn't start. I think all of this might be an electrical problem. Please contact me and/or send me a letter about getting recalled parts replaced on my car. Thank you.

The contact owns a 2009 Saturn Aura. The contact stated that the gear shifter is covered in chrome. The sun reflects on it and blinds the driver. The dealer stated that they will not do anything to correct this issue. The failure and current mileages were 3,027.
