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.

2009 Saturn Sky Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 012013

Sky 4-cyl

  • 50,000 miles


First incident happen when I arrived at work. I got into a parking place and shifted the car into park. Then went to shut off the car by turning the key. The key would not turn and so I could not turn my car off. I had to cut the car off by opening the hood and taking the fuel pump fuse out to shut it off. The key would turn to turn it off but not off. Took it to a GM dealership and got it replaced. Not cheap. No warranty. An inconvenience. Second incident happen as my girlfriend got into my 2009 Saturn Sky on the passenger side into the seat. The service airbag light glowed into the display and has been on since. Now when I have someone ride with me they will not have an airbag to keep them safe in the event of a crash etc. It cost way too much to get it repaired. I took it to the same GM dealer I did that fixed my key stuck in ignition for me and just for them to look at it'll cost $100 even if I know what has to be done. The seat will have to be taken apart and a new airbag sensor module will have to be installed. Total cost: $850-$1,100. And yet now recall. GM needs to take responsibility for both these issues. They are both major safety issues. Airbag sensor module is made in germany but no more info. On them. All Saturn Sky owners have experienced this and even if we do spend the outrages amount of money to fix it both problems can and have happen again to Saturn Sky owners.
