2002 Saturn Vue RecallsIgnition Lock Cylinder Concern
These vehicles are being recalled because it may be possible for the key to be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "Off" position. If this were to occur the vehicle could roll away unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the vehicle to see if the key can be pulled out when the ignition is off. If it can, dealers will replace the ignition cylinder and keys to correct this concern. Note: Until a vehicle has been remedied, owners and operators are advised that when exiting, to be sure that the vehicle is in "Park," or in the case of a manual transmission, that the vehicle is in the "Reverse" position and the parking brake is engaged.
