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. Notes: With the 2007 model year we finally get to bid adieu to a car famous for poor safety marks, a dangerously defective ignition and power steering that would work … sometimes.

2007 Saturn Ion Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 122010


  • 47,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Saturn Ion. While driving approximately 65 mph the power steering light illuminated on the dashboard and the power steering failed. The vehicle became very difficult to control. The contact was able to drive onto the emergency lane and shut the vehicle off. Upon restarting the vehicle it began to function normally. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was informed that this was a known failure and he would be responsible for the repairs. The vehicle was not repaired and the failure continued to occur. The failure became progressively worse over time. The contact stated that while driving approximately 45 mph, the air conditioning unit stopped blowing cold air and the temperature gauge stopped functioning. The vehicle was not diagnosed for the cause of failure. The failure continued to occur intermittently. The failure mileage was 47,000 and the current mileage was 62,689.
