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.

2003 Saturn L200 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 252007

(reported on)

L200 LX V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


My Saturn L200, 2003, is leased for 4 years, with about 8 months to go. I'm concerned because the lease means the car has to be working normally when I return it. A Saturn dealer near me states it could cost as much as $1,200 US to find and determine the source of the problem, because it takes hours to locate some electrical problems.

When I lock the doors on leaving the car, it all looks fine. But come back in five minutes and the doors are unlocked.

When driving, the doors will unlock and lock many times in the course of a few minutes.

I cannot leave the car in a parking lot because I am afraid it will be stolen.

What is the solution? I am reluctant to take it to a Saturn dealer because of the open-endedness of the probable bill I would be presented with.
