2006 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

problem #2

During day light hours I was driving on interstate 10 back to pensacola. I manually turned the light switch for the headlights on. I drove my 2006 Saturn Vue for about one hour as I was pulling into a rest area I reached to turn the lights off and I discovered that the light switch handle was to hot to touch. I feel that this switch is somehow shorted internally. This extreme heat could cause a fire in the passenger compartment. I spoke with a Saturn dealer and the service manager stated that Saturn had no other complaints on this condition. He would not check out my complaint. Most people owning this car would not know about this problem because the light usually turns on automatically when it turns dark outside.

: the contact stated while driving 35mph on the highway, the vehicle's interior filled with smoke and the instrument panel failed to illuminate. The contact managed to pull over without incident. There was a large amount of gray smoke, but no actual flames were seen. The smoke stopped after the ignition was turned off. Afterwards, the contact drove the vehicle to the dealership for inspection who determined the lighting fuse had blown. After replacing the fuse, the instrument panel failed to illuminate again. The manufacturer was alerted.
