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

problem #3

  • Manual transmission
  • 50 miles


2005 Saturn Vue feels like it is going to tip over when taking sharp turns. This is particularly noticeable when driving at high rates of speed but within the posted speed limits such as leaving the interstate freeways on to adjoining on ramps/off ramps which tend to have various curves in the road. The car feels scary when this happens and requires a complete reduction of speed by the driver with all other nearby cars and SUV's passing by with no visible similar handling problem. I would not be surprised if this problem has contributed or played a role in accidents.

Vue 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission

Last Jan. 2004 we purchased a 04 Saturn Vue, the vehicle ended up being in the shop for repairs such as suspension, drive train, wheel bearings etc. The last repair was the steering column and Saturn agreed to replace the M/V. in July 04 were received our new 04 Vue. On Saturday we brought it to the dealership for service and to check a rattle in the front end. We are new scheduled to have the steering column replace in this M/V. Saturn stated that the M/V is safe to drive but my concern is two (2) 04 Vue's with steering column replacements and Saturn not telling me if this is a major problem with these M/V's. what are the odds that this could only happen to us not once but twice.

2005 Saturn Vue developed problems with driving straight. The vehicle would wander while driving. If the consumer were to take his eye off the road for a second to check the mirrors the vehicle would wander to the left or right.
