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. The contact stated while starting the vehicle, the tilted steering wheeling was maneuvered in a downward position and then the driver 's side turn signal and both high beam headlights began to illuminate independently. The failure was not diagnosed nor was the vehicle repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 65,000.

Passenger headlight went out. I attempted to fix it, but a new bulb doesn't resolve the issue. The protective cover over the wiring going to the light is melted and there are noticeable burn marks around the light and light housing.
