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.

Ignition switch will not start the car. It is in the off position. I am having a new switch installed. I do not understand why this car part is not on the recall list. All other 2003 Saturn are being recalled.

problem #1

L300 4-cyl

  • 69,346 miles
Steering column clunking. Had intermediate shaft repaired when I purchased the car in 12/2007 which I included the lubrication of the intermediate shaft and replacing the sway bar links. In 3/2008, problem of clunking noise resurfaced. Steering gear was failing and leaking and repairs were made. In 12/2008, clunking noise resurfaced. Find tie rod was loose and that the strut mounts needed to be replaced. Clunking noise has resurfaced in late 2009, early 2010. Saturn is investigating repair needs based on previous work performed.
