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 052003

Vue 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Fuel economy is drastically below what was said in the sales room and indicated on the sticker. A search of Saturn Vue user sites online indicate that the problem is considerable. Some Vue owners (of the vti 4cyl) get up to 30 miles per gallon, while others like me get 15-17. It doesn't matter whether it's city driving, highway driving, or a combination. Such a disparity is unbelievable. The dealership said this is due to the break-in period. Other owners say they've had great mileage since the bought the car.
