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.

2002 Saturn SC1 Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 112005

SC1 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 88,000 miles


On February 11, 2005 I was involved in a motor vehicle accident. I was at a complete stop and rear ended by a person most likely going about 45 miles per hour. I own a Saturn SC1 2000. My seat went forward and then completely collapsed into the back seat. This is very significant for the following reasons. My 8 year old grandson typically rides in that very spot and if he were with me he certainly would have substained heavy injuries due to my weight and the speed in which the seat slammed backwards. I also feel that my injuries where more severe as the seat did not keep me in a secure position. My greatest fear is that this may occur with vehicles of this same model and others will be greatly wounded. I sincerely appreciate any inquiries you may make on my behalf for the common good and safety of others. Sincerely, pamela D. lomastro.
