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.

There is a definite problem with either the engine or the electrical system on the 2005 Saturn Relay. We have been to dealerships and complained about these problems, but they have brushed us off by saying that it could be the weather, and they did not see any problem. The car actually goes down in rpms and the whole dashboard and lights dim when in idle. Also, the idle is very rough. This should be looked at since after doing some research on some web sites there are many people with the same exact problem with this vehicle and they are also been given many different answers. P please investigate this since we have a one year old and I do not want anything to happen to her while we are using this minivan. Thank you.
