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.

  • 70,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Saturn Vue. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, a grinding type noise was present coming from the front passenger side wheel and the front of the vehicle would vibrate. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who diagnosed that the front passenger side wheel bearing was faulty. The bearing was replaced but the failure recurred. The contact indicated that while operating the vehicle, the front passenger side air bag sensor light would illuminate indicating that the system was turned off although a passenger was seated in the front passenger seat. The contact stated that the failure was intermittent. The failures were not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 70,000.

Driving along at highway speeds had to avoid hitting a vehicle after being cut off. This resulted in using greater than usual brake forceat that moment, heard pop noise which came from rear of vehicle then vehicle veered to right at the same instant steering wheel started to move clockwise and counter clockwise rapidly. Had to bring vehicle under 35 mph to get steering under control (almost lost control into cement barrier) when trying to accelerate back to speed limit vehicle vibrated violently for almost 2 miles until I was able to get off highway. When braking on off ramp vehicle veered to right ! later that day had vehicle checked and tech found rear subframe bolt had lost its head (literally) appeared to be badly rusted below depth of subframe.. bolt was replaced and alignment checked, two days later left front wheel locks when coming to stop or when brakes are pumped 2-3 applications. Had front pads and rotors replaced brakes flushed.,rear brakes checked and serviced. No indication of sticking calipers or flex hose issues.. vehicle has also experienced un explained wide open throttle when accelerator pedal is depressed more than 50 percent. Nearly rear ended another vehicle when wot occurred. These issues along with ignition switch problem have drained my pocketbook. Never have I encountered this many serious safety issues with any of my previous vehicles which I owned..

Vue 6-cyl

Pulled out of a gas station on March 20, 2013 and heard something fall in the front of the car and drag the ground. Pulled off to see what it was and there was a bar hanging down from the car. Tested the car out and it was driving and steering fine so drove home. Tried to go to a GM dealership (dublin byers, dublin, oh). Their hours said they were open until 6:00 P.M and it was 5:45 P.M. beeped the horn and they did not answer. Was taking the car to a repair shop on the 22nd to get a wheel bearing replaced and called and left them a message to tell them what happened. Checked my car out on March 21, 2013 and told me it was the stabilizer bar (sway bar). I believe this has been broken for quite some time but when I went down the slight embankment at the gas station apparently that was all it needed to fall down. It is a very clean break and did not break at the bolts but in the middle. Apparently this is happening to a number of cars as folks have been putting it on the internet. I did make a complaint to GM Saturn on-line and they have been in contact with me and wanted me to take the stabilizer bar to the dealership but it took a while to get through to the service manager. Went today and he never even came out and met me. He had one of the service team members just take the information down and they made a copy of my repair bill and took my phone number and said they will submit it to GM. I heard that they are still having issues with the stabilizer bar on the new vehicles as well. I believe there needs to be a recall on these and am hoping they reimburse me for the part. I am inclined to believe these parts are not solid metal that there could be some filler in them and believe this should be looked into. I can send you a photo of my part if you would like to look at it.

Front stabilizer bar broke under normal driving conditions. 1 inch thick bar snapped leaving parts dragging, ABS system inactive and car unexpectedly difficult to control. Luckily the car was not being driven at a high rate of speed.
