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.

2003 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 042014

Vue V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles


I had this happen several times, had it towed once. The security system will activate when starting the vehicle, the dash lights and gauges will go haywire and no steering. I have been driving down the road when it started doing it, accident waiting to happen. Started at 105,000 miles that I know of. I got the car in Feb. 2014

Update from Feb 1, 2015: Had the theft deterrent system checked out code p1629, as this is the problem with the dash lights and gauges going crazy and power steering not working. The problem has gotten worst. Contacted Saturn about this problem. This shouldn't be happening with this kind of miles on it, 106,500 now, started at 105,000. At one point Saturn acted like they may help with the cost. Now they are playing that off. The cost is between $700 and $1000 to fix the problem, that I don't have, I live on social security. I will never own another Saturn!!!!!!
