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.

Ongoing intermittent problem with front passenger airbag. Dashboard "service air bag" warning light activated. Front passenger airbag indicator light shows 'off' even when an adult is sitting in the seat with the seatbelt on. Saturn dealer finally repaired problem after 4 service visits. Dealer replaced seat connector, airbag wiring harness, & passenger presence module assembly. Problem appears to be resolved.

My 2008 Saturn Outlook's passenger side airbag indicator light shows 'off' even when an adult is sitting in the seat with the seatbelt on. I saw there was a recall for the 2007 model but not one issued for the 2008 model. I wanted to report this problem due to the seriousness if there is an accident and the bag is not functional.

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.

Passenger airbag system fails to register an adult passenger in the seat, therefore the system is not always active. This is an intermittent problem.
