Saturn Recall 03059: GM/FMVSS 120/Tire/Certification Label

2004 Saturn Vue

If the wheel rim size is incorrectly printed on a tire/certification label, a service technician who solely uses the tire/certification label for service information may attempt to replace a damaged wheel with an incorrect wheel.

Equipment — Other — Labels

Summary
Certain sport utility vehicles equipped with 3.5L V6 (L66) engines fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 120, "tire selection and rims for vehicles other than passenger cars." The front and rear wheel rim size specifications on the tire/certification label are not correct. The printed wheel rim designation specified a 16-inch wheel when a 17-inch wheel designation was required.
Actions
Owners will be provided with a corrected label and installation instructions. Owner notification began on December 15, 2003. Owners should contact Saturn at 1-800-553-6000.
