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.

2006 Saturn Relay Owner Comments

problem #2

Relay 6-cyl

My 18 year old son had an accident. He rolled the van multiple times, hit trees, damaged all sides, and roof of the van. The only door that would easily open was the drivers door. The front axle broke, windshield broken. The insurance appraiser said all panels were damaged and could not believe none of the air bags opened. The Saturn Relay 2006 was a total loss.

: the contact stated the vehicle was involved in a collision and the airbags did not deploy. The contact was stopped in the center lane, when another vehicle attempted to get into the same lane. The contact's vehicle was hit on the front passenger side fender causing the vehicle to flip completely over and landed right side up. The contact sustained head and arm injuries and a police report was taken. All occupants were wearing their seatbelts. The airbag warning light was not illuminated prior to the crash. There were pictures available and the vehicle was deemed totaled.
