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.

2001 Saturn L200 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 072009

L200 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


Initially wife said car was missing and idling rough. Change plugs, put in expensive dry gas x2 and brought it to KIA car dealer where i bought it used. they replaced plugs and said they were the wrong ones. (bill was greater than 200) It would still miss at highway speeds. took it to another mechanic and said it was something similar to the catalytic converter. Called Saturn and they said it was still under warranty. (2nd mechanic price was 150) took it to Saturn and they found the problem for 24 - it was the ignition coil of which they had a spare and found the problem. only trouble it cost about 300 to repair which my son put on. car runs great now but only a slight rough idle.
