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.

2005 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

I was sitting at a red light in my brand new 2005 Saturn Vue and was hit from behind by a medium-sized transit bus at approx. 35-40 mph. The damage to the rear of the car was extensive and resulted in the total loss of the car. My concern is that the front driver's seat broke during the accident. The back of the seat collapsed and fell back into the back seat. The seat almost totally broke underneath and twisted to the left. I was the lone occupant in the car and suffered numerous abrasions, bruises, cuts, bumps, and sprains, as well as back and neck pain. I was wearing my seat belt and still hit the steering wheel, causing me to get cuts on my lips and face. The majority of the injuries to my body were on the left side.
