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

Jul 312009


  • 30,000 miles


2003 Saturn Vue (2.2L) fuel line failure driven in nw Indiana - corrosion of line under the plastic sheath.that ended in perforation and steady drip of fuel. This fuel line connects the downstream side of the fuel filter to the engine fuel injection rail. Corrosion occurred within 2 feet of the filter. 1. gasoline odor outside the vehicle when parked in one place for awhile up to 30 days prior to discovery. 2. after driving the vehicle a few miles and parking it, upon returning to it dampness and a steady drip of gasoline was seen dripping steadily. 3. all new replacement line was ordered and replaced. Vehicle has approx 30K miles and, curiously, shows a fair amount of undercarriage rust for its age and mileage. Brake lines also show some external rust. Old perforated fuel line still available.
