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.

2007 Saturn Outlook Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 1,600 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Saturn Outlook. While turning the vehicle, the contact heard a loud popping sound in the steering column. She also experienced gear slippage. On one occasion, while driving approximately 60 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they replaced the transmission and steering column. Several weeks after the repair, the failure resurfaced. She took the vehicle back to the dealer and they replaced the coolant lines. Immediately after the repair, the transmission failed again. The vehicle is in the process of being repaired. The manufacturer would not assist. The failure mileage was 1,600 and current mileage was 50,000.
