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

  • 65,000 miles
Key is able to be removed while the ignition switch is in on position, whether vehicle is stationary, moving, running or off. Started shortly after purchase (used) in 2010, at about 65,000 miles. Very disconcerting to say the least.

Like other cars in the ignition recall, when I try to turn on the car the wheel is locked, I need to move the steering wheel back and forth and if that doesn't work I press on the gas. I can also take the key out when the car is running. GM will not pay for it because it is not in the recall and my mileage is over 100K. I also have a problem with the airbags turning on when there is no one in the passenger seat.

The ignition switch on the vehicle is almost impossible to turn in the "on" position, at times.
