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.

2005 Saturn Relay 3: replaced ABS sensor in wheel hubs 5 times because of AWD being disabled due to ABS light coming on. Code indicated bad sensor when the problem was really the ebcm. I have seen numerous complaints from other Saturn Relay owners of the same problem. I don't understand why a recall has not been issued.

I have a Saturn Relay 2005 ABS lights stays on, all wheel drive disable warning light stays on, replaced hub and wheelbearing three times still have ABS lights come on. Nobody seem to know how fix this problem, this is a safety issue. Don't trust having my kids in the car. I looked up on the computer a lot of similar complaints with the same issue with the Saturn Relay, there needs to be a recall before there are serious accidents and lawsuits.

ABS system light comes on. We bought the 2005 Saturn Relay used from a Saturn dealer. Day after we got it, the ABS and brake lights came on. Dealer corrected it. One year later, brakes are all good but service ABS system light comes on. Turn the van off and back on, it disappears. Then next time it is on. This has been reported in many forums. Why is this safety issue not being elevated to recall status.

I have a Saturn Relay with brake problems. The ABS does not work properly. Very scary stuff. The ABS will come on with dry conditions but will not come on when we actually need them, like in the snow. Saturn does not know what the issue is. Keep taking my van back and nobody seems to know how to fix it. I guess there waiting for me and my children to actually get into a serious accident before anyone will do something about it.

2005 Relay. The ABS lights will come on randomly. Turning off the car and back on fixes it for a while, but recently the lights is almost steady and we are not able to reset it.
