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.

Ignition switch is difficult to operate, added graphite lubricant but only partial relief. Other models of same year having same problems. GM should recall and replace switch.

problem #3

Nov 232008


  • 50,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Saturn Vue. While driving 40 mph, the contact slammed on the brakes and struck a dog. The front fender and bumper were damaged. The contact was not injured. The fog lights were detached from the vehicle and the air bag warning indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. The air bags failed to deploy. The dealer stated that the air bags did not deploy because the seat heater circuit was connected to the air bag sensor. Repairs could not be made to the air bag or air bag sensor because the element burned out. The failure and current mileages were less than 50,000.

My 2006 Saturn view was discovered to have wiring located directly above the fuel tank chewed causing the metal exposure of the wire. This wire was not shielded, as should be, and due to location above fuel tank could have been a deadly situation due plastic fuel hoses just below the wires. All wiring into the fuel tank and adjacent to fuel lines should have extra shielding in case of not only chewing by rodents but possible rubbing actions.

  • 18,000 miles
2006 Saturn Vue with 18,000 miles. Three times, while my 73 year old mother was driving, the entire warning light cluster has come on while driving. The first occurrence she pulled over and stopped the motor. She restarted it and the lights remained on for about 1 mile, the vehicle seemed to be working okay, then the lights went out before she got home. She reported it to the dealer (it is a lease vehicle). They asked her to drive it in the following day; they could not duplicate the problem and returned the car to her. The same thing happened about two weeks later. This time the lights remained on and the dealer said it was traced to a bad electrical connector. They replaced the connector and returned the vehicle to mom. About two weeks later the lights all came and the electronic power steering system failed. Mom could barely turn the wheel enough to pull over. Fortunately she was stopped at the time talking to a friend on the street near her house. If she had been in traffic there surely would have been an accident. The dealer sent a tow truck right away and picked up the vehicle. They have replaced an electronic module and the lights stayed on; they now have changed the main computer and a totally different bank of lights came on. Now they are working on getting her a different vehicle, one that she can feel safe in. Even if they replace everything in that Vue and get the lights to stay off she does not feel confident about driving it -- if the steering fails in traffic there will be a wreck and possible injury/death. The dealership in Colorado springs where she leased it from is doing everything they can to make things right -- their service has been great, just a piece of junk system in the 2006 Vue.
