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.

I started getting "service traction control system" warning message and light with "service ABS system" warning message and light and "service stability system". all are always at the same time. Shutting off the engine and restarting (per owners manual) temporarily causes the lights and messages to turn off, but they always return later. This problem is well documented in Saturn forums and is happening with many, many owners.

Relay

  • 34,500 miles
I have a 2006 Saturn Relay. It was an executive driven car and was purchased with 400 miles on it and the warranty transferred over to me. The traction control on this vehicle is defective. When the traction control engaged it would knock out the stability control, traction control, and ABS system. Although I have breaks, they are manual breaks. At first Saturn said the system is working to factory specs until it happened to their vehicle. Then all of a sudden there was a problem with mine. I do not feel safe in the car because, I should not have to worry about what kind of breaking system I have when trying to engage my breaks. I do not want to cause harm to anyone or have any accident caused by this result in death. I do not want harm to me or my loved ones either. No one at Saturn or Saturn of greenfield senses the urgency of this situation. It isn't until I complaint that I at least get some type of action, although it results in the system failing again. I have my car in to have this issue fixed earlier this summer. This past weekend, the system failed three times in two days. Not a good result. I need this documented so that in the event I am involved in a serious accident, I will not be accused of not disclosing this situation. I can say that I did and no one took it seriously which will probably result in a long messy legal battle. I have done my part, but Saturn of greenfield and GM (Saturn) has failed to do theirs.
