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

  • Manual transmission
  • 74,999 miles


Vehicle: 2006 Saturn Vue manual transmission. Twice in the last 4 months the manual transmission has failed catastrophically while driving on the highway. In both instances the shifter separated from the transmission and the vehicle was stuck in gear. The second occurrence was on an I-95. The Saturn dealership replaced and end clip the first time and the shifter cable the second time. They are telling me that the occurrences are unrelated - different parts and balking at fixing the defect without me paying for it. I have found several internet sites in which people are complaining of this same failure over several model years in the Saturn Vue. I was lucky that I did not get in an accident with this failure - especially the second time on I-95.
