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.

2 complaints about the Outlook...first, the airbag. We have had it fixed 5 times! the dealer re-routed it, put it back, replaced wiring, but to no avail. And it appears again that it needs to be serviced. This problem has been going on for over a year. Then 2nd the driver's side low light beam went out....replaced bulb three times and it didn't hold a charge for about a few days each. GM definitely need to look at these problems. I am very frustrated that a car that just goes out of warranty has problems that need major fixing.

The contact owns a 2008 Saturn Outlook. While driving at an unknown speed she noticed the air bag light was illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who was unable to diagnose the failure but the computer system was reset to clear the air bag light. The failure recurred four times. After each failure the vehicle was taken back to an authorized dealer where various repairs were performed; however, the failure continued to occur. The failure mileage was 13,241. The current mileage was 40,000.

Want to pursue the "lemon law" on a 2008 Saturn Outlook. Vehicle has only 20K miles on it but has been to dealer 5X for repair of air bag system. The vehicle manual clearly states in the warranty that when the service air bag light comes on it needs to be serviced by the dealer. The issue is one of safety in that the air bags may not deploy when needed and/or can deploy without incident. Said vehicle was in 2X the month of April 2010, making it the 5th time for repairs on the air bag system. I no longer feel safe driving the car much less transporting other children under these circumstances.
