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.

  • 35,000 miles


My airbag sensor quit working. At this low mileage there should not be an issue. Now my car is out of warranty and I'm forced to pay to have it fixed out of pocket. From my research this appears to be a common issue. I encourage the NHTSA to investigate the issue and have GM recall vehicles with a similar issue. It is for the safety of the public.

Service air bag warning is activated due to a defective sensor which results in air bag not functioning properly or being deployed in the event of an accident. This is an obvious safety concern that should be addressed by recall.

  • 92,000 miles
The Saturn Sky was purchased with a failed sensor on the passenger side seat for the airbag. Upon research I discovered that this is a known issue with the Saturn Sky and Pontiac solstice. It affects multiple years and GM has known about it since it started happening. Yet upon review there has not been a recall issued for this problem. This is clearly a safety issue in regards to the safety of the passenger in a two seat car. GM is now issuing recalls for almost everything and I have read multiple reports to your organization in regards to the airbag sensor problem, but GM does nothing. When is this issue going to be taken seriously? I wish I had the statistics on how many have been injured or killed due to this failed sensor so I could include that.

  • 62,000 miles
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.

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.
