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

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


2004 vue purchased new, late 2004; currently has only 16,000 miles, serviced by the dealer. For the past est of 2000 miles it will devoid itself of power while making turns and going forward. It will not buck, but reduce the power. Keep rolling and then very gradually pick up speed. Dealer informed at last oil change, I was told to bring it in for a day to be checked. Dealer will be contacted for loner car, I cannot sit and wait all day. Car is necessary for transportation for wife who works. This is a safety hazard anytime the car is moving forward.
