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.

I'm experiencing an engine light on all the time. Regardless of, the weather and after having my vehicle check for maintenance work. Had a vehicle diagnostic done and the results was a code 10. Which means cam actuator solenoid, 2008 Saturn Vues are known for this problem. Replace that part the engine have to be taken apart. This engine light stays on constantly. It been on since March 2014, if this problem is not handle my vehicle will start having problems starting and shutting down without my control while driving. This is a power drive and ignition/starter problem. Can you please research this issue and assist me with this matter. All the dealer did since I couldn't buy a new vehicle was sent me on a test drive and while I was gone they went under the hood and made the light go off. That work for only a hour. Please response. Thanks.

The contact owns a 2008 Saturn Vue. The contact stated that after powering off, the vehicle failed to restart. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the technician diagnosed that the ignition needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The current and failure mileage was unknown.

We purchased a 2008 Saturn Vue on June 28, 2008. The past 3 weeks, the key would periodically not release from the ignition - service department replaced the shifter saying it was not completely going into park. Also, the airbag light (for driver) starting blinking at the time the above occurred (this was also brought to their attention). When I started the car, it started to blink (only light blinking) and continued blinking when all other lights faded. No error message was received by the chip. Mile one Saturn claims that they could not replicate the air bag issue, therefore the service department perceived there was no issue and released the car to me. Needless to say, I went back in and told them I was not taking the car until they fixed the problem.
