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.

My vehicle's air bag light came on and I had it inspected by keyes Chevrolet, a registered Saturn servicer. He informed me that the passenger side airbag module was faulty and it would be about 900-1000 dollars to fix it. They didn't print me the estimate or the part number. I went to an independent mechanic who said the part was indeed around 500 dollars, but the airbag sensor should not be faulty after only 62,000 miles. My extended service plan through Ford refuses to cover this extreme safety hazard. If anything ever happened to me or my passenger due to this issue I would absolutely file a lawsuit. This is not something I should have to pay nearly a thousand dollars to fix especially since I am going through a recall right now with the ignition- and they still do not have the parts in, may car could slip into drive or reverse while in park and they said it would take 2 months to get the recall parts in? this is all terrifying and unacceptable.

The contact owns a 2007 Saturn Sky. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign id numbers: 14V047000 (air bags, electrical system) and 14V171000 (electrical system), however the parts needed to complete each recall service were not available. The dealer was unable to provide an expected date for when the remedy parts would become available. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The contact had not experienced a failure.

I have had 2 Saturn Sky's, both have randomly disabled their airbags while driving due to a faulty sensor in the passenger seat. When I went online I found this is a common problem and even read news broadcasts about this specific sensor failing. The following website is one of those stories. My dealership has stated that it is not a recall matter.

Air bag sensor in passenger seat is defective. Light comes on, indicating sensor problem. This makes it impossible to pass safety inspections in the state of Virginia. Looking at $800 to replace what appears to be a known problem in these cars.

The passenger presence sensor light has been on for awhile. It had been 'fixed' once before when the vehicle was under warranty. The exact same sensor went out several months after warranty expiration June 2012). Concerned because this faulty (disabled) sensor will not deploy passenger-side airbag in an accident.

Air bag passenger sensor stopped working unexpectedly. I had the module replaced by a GM dealership and had to pay complete cost. One year later the new module broke once again and the airbag sensor is not working meaning that if a person is in the seat the airbag will not deploy if an accident was to happen and will most likely increase the chances of a death because of faulty parts by GM.

Although I rarely have passengers, for some odd reason, my passenger airbag warning light randomly went on. After searching the internet for causes/solutions, I see that this is a common occurrence for these types of cars. There's even a movement with Sky and solstice owners who have this issue to com here and file this form (which is how I found it). This issue wouldn't be so intolerable, if the solution wasn't so expensive (over $1000 for a sensor/module repair - $356.43 for parts and a whopping $647.50 in labor). This needs to be corrected and I hope this form is part of the solution. Thank you!

My granddaughter entered the passenger side of my Saturn Sky with her knees first on the seat and the air bag warning is now lit. I see on line hundreds of these same complaints and yet no recalls. More off our government not protecting its citizens.

The recent recall on ignition switches for GM vehicles is great however there are a number of GM cars that have an additional problem affecting the deployment of the air bag beside the ignition switch. Thousands of GM vehicles have an inferior passenger seat sensor that goes out and will not deploy the air bag for the passenger of the car. GM is knowledgeable of this and refuses to fix the problem for the owners. Cars affected are the Saturn Sky, Pontiac solstice, Pontiac G6, Chevrolet Malibu and some model corvettes. The item costs consumers $1000 to fix and it is possible it will go out again in months after replaced. GM knows about this have had my Saturn Sky tested and it is identified as the passenger seat sensor. The feds need to get GM to be more honest and include this item as a safety recall as well. It appears that since no passengers have been killed that it is not a concern. Please look into this matter as well.
