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.

2001 Saturn SC1 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 212001


  • Manual transmission
  • miles


While driving at 30mph consumer took foot off accelerator and vehicle kept going. She then applied brakes; but, it did not slow vehicle. Applied transmission, and tachometer went to 3000 rpms. She then released transmission, and vehicle kept speed of 35 mph. She applied brakes and transmission, vehicle slowed and engine raced. But, stopped at light. She let go of transmission and brakes, and by that time she had shifted up to 3rd gear without applying accelerator, vehicle reached 35 mph. After 1/2 to 3/4 mile engine stopped racing, and consumer was able to stop vehicle. Dealer found nothing wrong with vehicle. Miles at incident 19800.
