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.

2004 Saturn L300 Owner Comments

L300 V6 3.2L

I got a 04 L300. This car has a mind of its own. Every three to four days it will spit and sputter like its out of gas and all my gauges will stop working. Then it shifts hard and at this time I am at about half tank of gas. But it just stops doing it by itself after about a day of doing this. This is nothing more than a pain I am so upset I paid $3800 for this car not 4 months ago. It's one problem after another. It's getting old. These cars are lemons. I am telling you, I have own a lot of cars and never had anything like this happen. I can only drive it for a few days without a problem. That's a pain when I gotta work 6 days a week. Don't think about getting one of these things. Please look around first.
