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.

2006 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 032012


  • 100,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Saturn Vue. The contact stated that the key was difficult to remove from the ignition switch and hard to turn into the on position to start the vehicle. The contact replaced the original key as a temporary remedy and was able to start the vehicle. In addition, while traveling approximately 40 mph, a metal piece and spring fractured when the brake pedal was depressed. The contact also heard a clicking sound upon starting and turning off the vehicle. The battery was replaced by a repair shop and later the alternator was replaced, but the failure recurred. The dealer stated that there was a loose wire and the ignition cylinder needed to be replaced. The technician indicated that in order to complete the repair and find where the spring came from, the ignition cylinder would need to be removed. The ignition switch was not tightly connected. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 100,000.
