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.

  • 16,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Saturn Outlook. The contact turned the ignition off. The engine failed to restart. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and it started on the first attempt. While driving approximately 20 mph, the entire instrument panel became nonfunctional. The gauges displayed a zero reading. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer and the instrument cluster was replaced; however, after the vehicle was repaired, the instrument panel intermittently malfunctioned. The manufacturer was notified and advised the contact that the failure would be investigated. The vehicle has not been repaired. The vehicle identification number was unavailable. The current mileage was 18,000. The failure mileage was 16,000.
