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.

Vue

  • 104,000 miles
I had my 100,000 service performed on my car(2002 Saturn Vue) and six months later (less then 5,000 miles) my timing belt broke while traveling on the interstate at 65mph. I was told that it was due to a "possible oil leak" or because I hadn't had my oil changed since my last service and sludge had possible built up in the engine. While researching the problem, I noted that many others had the same problem with the Saturn L series and a few Vues. I was told to repair the timing chain, cylinder head, and gaskets would cost $2600 or I could replace the engine (not sure of the cost of a used engine at this point).

Roof rack is attached via a customer/dealer installed stud that replaces the factory installed mounting screw. The stud is rusting and does not remain tight after rack and cargo box usage. Either the rust or the lack of tightness will eventually lead to cargo box and rack being torn from roof during travel. There is the possiblility for a serious accident.
