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.

Vue 6-cyl

The vehicle has major wind can not even hear the radio or conversations in the vehicle due to this noise. The car also has a rattling coming from the driver and passenger side of the car, we can not identify the source. The vehicle also rolls back on a hill when in drive. The brakes also squeal and the dealership says they are fine, but we do not believe they are. These problems have been going on since May 2005 and till now (1/18/06) Saturn has not fixed any of them.
