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 #2

Outlook 6-cyl

  • 64,275 miles


Driving on highway when warning appeared "traction control offline" "service stabilitrak". my husband had received the same warning two days earlier. So we took it to the Saturn dealership. The tech asked us if we drove "two footed" ie braking and accelerating at the same time. We do not do that. We were then advised that the sensors for the position of the brake pedal needed to be replaced the part was only $11.40 but we were charged for 2 hours of labor!
