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.

My 2007 Saturn Outlook continuously leaks water from the roof every time it rains. The leaking water is not one drip here and there, but a gush of water will come out of these areas and will continue to leak while it is raining. The water will drain out of the headliner, the airbag areas, the light fixtures, the seat belt areas all in the front and back of the car and will also drench the passenger and driver side floor boards. This has caused my car to have a musty moldy smell to it. I find it very discerning that after you purchase a vehicle, it will have these safety issues such as water leaking. I understand that these things happen, but I am afraid that this will cause a shortage with the wiring systems in my vehicle thus causing even more damage. Since the water started leaking from the roof, I have had airbag issues and windshield wiper issues (it runs constantly). I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone.

Water is coming in from the sunroof drains. Water is pooling in the headliner. Upon braking water poured out the front of the headliner by the passenger windshield and also dripped on the lower left side of the drivers side gauge compartment. I am concerned of stagnant water causing mold and mildew - I am highly allergic and it causes bronchial issues. I am concerned of the water shorting out the electronic components. I purchased this vehicle from my father who drove it sporadically and garaged it. I do not have a garage and drive it daily rain or shine. I am concerned for our safety. A car is not supposed to leak.

Roof leaks from sunroof /moonroof. Everytime it rains my 2007 Saturn Outlook roof leaks. The water travels into the pillars and where the air bags are stored in the columns. I am not sure if this will effect air bag operation or deployment. Leaks into the glove box and behind dashboard as well as into the rear passenger / storage area. The floors are saturated and the vehicle smells of mold. Random dashboard lights come on periodically.

Constant sunroof leak into passenger side of vehicle, multiple repairs. The rain runs down into vehicle leaving massive puddle of water on the passenger side floor. It appears to run down on far right side under the glove box area into the vehicle. I constantly have towels on the passenger side floor to protect the carpet, however the carpet is now permanently damaged and smells moldy. The state in which I live rains all winter long, so this is a major issue. I'm very concerned about the electrical box and electrical system failing! GM dealerships have been completely unhelpful and want to charge anywhere from $300 to $500 to replace the tubing every year.

I purchased my car from carmax and not even a month after, it rained really hard one night and the inside of my car on the driver side was leaking. I took it back and they called themselves fixing and I ended having the same problem again. Long story short I recently had the problem again but this time the leak is all over the car on the roof and this time carmax told me to take it GM and they said that it was just a clogged. I'm having to many problems with the same thing and nobody is taking blame for it. Either they fix it for good or I want a replacement vehicle.

This vehicle has a problem with leaking water when it rains! water will leak from the sunroof and pool in the passenger front seat foot well. It will fill the glove box and the foot well. The vehicle has been to the dealership for the problem every year since it has been owned by us. We recently were out of town and had to let the vehicle sit outside while we were away. When we arrived back from our trip the vehicle was filled with water in the footwell of the passenger side. All of the windows were steamed up, and the temperature outside was around 95 degrees, since then it has continued to rain and I have had to shop vac out the standing water. The biggest problem is the mold that has begun to grow in the car. The glove box has filled with water and ruined everything in it. There have been multiple warning lights that have come on since such as "check airbags" which I have personally seen water leak from. This is no longer a safe vehicle for me, my wife, or my three young children. I haven't been able to reach anyone other than the dealer to express my concern. I love the vehicle but my family's health is priority.

During a rain, water started pouring out of the airbag and seatbelt covers on the passenger side. Water was leaking out of headliner between windshield and door. It is dripping all the way down the side near the glove compartment onto the floor. I am concerned that others have had this same issue with no resolution. I am afraid that it will damage the electronic components and make the airbags and seatbelts fail. Please help get this recalled!!!!!!

Sunroof leaking water into the passage compartment and down the front firewall and glove box compartment. Water entered into the cover that hides the front A/C blower motor. Motor is sitting in 1-2 inches of water. Motor starting to corrode and stopped working. Lucky there wasn't a fire. Found utube video describing how to fix this problem. Removed cover to blower and freed up blower motor corrosion. Ordered a replacement blower motor. Drilled 2 holes in this cover to allow future water collection a drainage route out of this cover. Sunroof needs recalled and blower motors need recalled as well. cost to repair this was $78 for part and about 1 hour labor.

Water was leaking through the passenger side visor clip; the headliner above the passenger seat was wet. Before the car died, the temp gauge read hot and the check engine light come on, rear hatch was not working, later to find out the rear switch shorted from water. The car was taken to a GM shop where they found a water leak that flooded the fuse box. The car was returned to us. The car was in the shop from 2/7/12 -2/23/12. When the car was returned the horn wasn't working, radio/nav screen was black, but you could hear the radio. The car was brought back on 2/29/. another leak was found. A "water master" replaced the seal and glass on the sunroof.the car was returned on 3/6/12. Then we noticed the inside lights were not working along with the radio would not turn off and the outside temp reg. @ 82 degrees when in fact is was 42 degrees out along with condensation on 4/3.GM put out bulletins making the public aware of the potential issues due to inadequate drain tubes to prevent the problems above from happening. The repairs have failed. Apparently, there is a several design flaws in these vehicles.there could be potential disastrous outcome from the persistent water leaks we are experiencing despite repairs done per service bulletins. We have researched this problem extensively and have read 100's of other Saturn owners with the same issues; even after the repairs to prevent these problems. The edmunds forum is full of complaints.these cars are not safe and I'm just grateful I wasn't"?T driving on the hwy. When my fuse box died. When will GM become accountable for these faulty poor designed drain tubes from the sunroofs? GM alerted the public, paid for the repair and the repairs failed" and we can't find anyone who has had a repair that has worked. We need an advocate and a class action. GM is very much aware of this issue. I will never feel safe or confident.

Sunroof leaks. The leaks lead to reserves of water above the headliner that can be heard when turns are made. Significant amounts of water run through air bags on a columns and dashboard. Given that the battery has died on me six times, I am concerned about long term electrical damage and proper air bag deployment. Dealer has attempted to repair five times.
