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.

2009 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 222015


  • 119,000 miles


The selling dealership lists this vehicles current condition as, "suburb condition." The following inspection comments were provided to me when at this dealership: A) drivers side sun visor broken, doesn't stay in place; B) left front headlight out; C) no heat control (always blowing cold); D) drivers side lumbar adjuster broken off; E) air filter dirty; F) front and rear brakes at 3 mm. Recommend front and rear pads and rotors; G) "small" oil leak near transfer case; H) front sway bar links "rattle" over bumps. An estimate was provided for parts and labor costs, but did not include parts and labor costs for fixing the heat or the engine leak(s). Also, labor costs were not provided for repairing the lumbar support. The total cost for these repairs is several thousand dollars. Based on these inspection results, and my own observation (I.e. the tires dot dates and wear indicate instability in cars performance and safety), the current condition of this vehicle is not "suburb."
