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.

2008 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

I own a 08 Saturn Vue. The car was a year old before the problem started. My car started having a very caustic odor that made your eyes burn as well as your throat. I took it to the dealer several times & they said there was nothing wrong & put air freshener in the vents. Needless to say, 4 months later I am still battling with them about this issue & we have filed a formal complaint with GM. The odor is also corroding the inside of my car. It is not only corroding metal tie downs in the back of the car, creating an oily film on the windows, but eating the laminate off parts inside the car. Saturn honestly does not know what is wrong with the car. The local dealer is doing what they can. It is GM that is being difficult. We finally have them convinced to do an air quality test while driving the car. The ft. Worth police forensic lab said there is an acidity to the air. They took several samples to run tests, which we are currently waiting the results. The frustrating part is their denial that there was anything wrong with the car & even after we proved to them that there was corrosion issues. I am seriously concerned for my health after breathing this toxic air for 4 months & anyone else out there that is having the same issues & not getting anywhere with Saturn or GM. Your attention to this issue is greatly appreciated.
