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 Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 022007


  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,830 miles


I purchased a 2005 Saturn Relay Pre-owned. I am having problems with it. It had about 62,830 miles to begin with. Every time I turn the ignition key the car will start then cuts off. I have to turn the key several times and press my foot on the gas pedal in order for the vehicle to not cut off repeatedly. I am a single mother of 4 and needed the space, but now I am regretting I traded in my older vehicle for this one. I thought I was getting a great vehicle for my family. As a single mom this will be costing me more money to fix the problem. I am so disappointed that people will do anything to make a sale, even to those of us who are on a fixed budget looking for a ride for our family. I am so disgusted. I wish there was something I could do.
