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.

2009 Saturn Outlook Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 232013

Outlook 4-cyl

  • 45,800 miles


I took my 2009 Saturn Outlook xe to the GM service center yesterday only to find out at 45000 my steering rack and pump needs to be replaced at $1300 +. also, my timing chain is gone. My air conditioner stopped blowing cold air for the second time and lastly when I turn on my defrost it comes out at my feet. The air and the defrost I am still waiting for them to figure out the problem. How can GM get away with this. I haven't even reached 50000 miles and my car needs close to $5000 in repairs. GM need to stand behind their vehicles and put out a recall on the steering rack before someone gets seriously hurt or killed. Please, someone do something.
