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

problem #1

Vue V4

  • Manual transmission
  • 43,000 miles


You name it, it needed to be repaired on this car. Everything from engine valves, sway bars, clutch and hydraulic system to air-conditioning blowing out twice in the middle of the summer (in the desert) needed to be repaired. I'm sure I've forgotten some of the earlier, expensive repairs. When I finally dumped this lemon it had less than 43,000 miles on it. I reached the point where I had spent more on repairs than the car was worth...with no end in sight as far as repairs were concerned.

I'll NEVER buy another GM car. No wonder Saturn went out of business. It's a complete lemon. No wonder GM was in financial trouble! They aren't capable of building a reliable car!
