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 Vue Owner Comments

The ignition key may be removed without turning off the ignition regardless of shift lever position; it can be removed while driving or parked. I purchased the vehicle used and assumed that the problem was a worn key or ignition barrel so I hadn't reported it. The news item that detailed this particular problem failed to mention this particular model of the Saturn brand. I am now filing this formal report to include the Saturn Vue as part of the ignition switch problem caused by General Motors. Please respond to let me know your action regarding this filing.
