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.

Aura 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Saturn Aura. While driving 10 mph, the steering wheel began to make an abnormal sound without warning. The failure was persistent. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the rack and pinion failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 44,000. Updated 06/08/2016 the consumer stated he received two conflicting inspections. He was told there was an issue with the rack and pinion, and then he was told there was no issue. The tires have since worn out and needs to be replaced. Updated 06/29/16.
