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.

2004 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


2004 Vue multiple issues... first issue less then 100 miles on vehicle, depressed brakes car continued to creep at stop sign. Diagnostics at Saturn dealership: Split in brake line, replaced under warranty. Second issue: Less then 300 miles on vehicle, quick stop caused rear seat safety harness to become disconnected from vehicle wall.. daughter was not restrained and slid forward in seat. Saturn diagnostics: Someone was not doing their job the day it was made... they tightened screw back into wall of car and have not had issues since... this was uncalled for and should have been caught during safety inspection. Third issue: Saw details on news about recall on this model of Vue, contacted Saturn dealership about it and was told that we would be getting information in the mail about repairs. Fourth issue: About 20,000 on Vue, went to store and was functional, came out and car would not start, over half a tank of gas in vehicle and gauge shows empty, bought gas can and put 5 more gallons of gas in car. Still shows empty and car would not start, no word on reason for failure beaches it happened today (10/23/05).
