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.

The contact owns a 2008 Saturn Vue. Whenever the contact opens the front passenger side door handle to enter the vehicle, the door handle will remain open. If you are unaware of the failure, the door could open while driving because it is not fully locked. The dealer stated that all of the vehicles of this model have the same issue. If they were to replace the part, it would be with another defective part, which would not remedy the failure. The contact believes that the manufacturer should issue a recall. The failure mileage was 200 and current mileage was 2,000. Updated 03/04/09. Updated 03/06/09.

Vue 6-cyl

The door locks on our 2008 Saturn Vue automatically unlock when the vehicle is put into park. All four doors unlock. According to the dealer and manufacture, there is no way to disable this feature. I think this is unsafe when parking, especially in unfamiliar areas. I would like the option of having the doors remain locked until I want them unlocked.
