Parking Brake Fails Safety Standards May Cause Unintended Vehicle Movement
Certain sport utility vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Safety Standard # 135 "Passenger Car Brake Systems" To meet the standard, vehicles must not move for 5 minutes when stopped on a steep hill with the parking brake applied and the vehicle in neutral. Some of these vehicles failed this test. When the parking brake is released the driver may notice unintended braking while accelerating, decelerating or coasting.

Saturn Owners' Reviews
I love my car and I am so glad I bought it. I have not had any trouble with the car in 6 years except to buy a new battery. I had to have some Freon put in my air conditioner last summer, but that has been all. What a cute car.

My car won't stay started could it be water or something in my tank.
the gas is not getting up to the front.
Owning my 2007 Sky Redline for 4.5 years and putting 36.000 of the 53,000 currently on the odometer I have little to complain about. Excellent power and handling coupled with low maintenance (replaced high pressure fuel pump and just put on a new set of tires).
The interior could have used nicer finishes (hence the 4 star rating) but they are holding up and the brakes could be a bit larger, I plan on keeping the car for a long time based on it's cost to fun ratio!
I love my Saturn from the day I bought it. Purchased in 1993 and it only has 60, 000 miles on it. I've had no problems until yesterday.
The trip guage started to run continuously, driving my mileage up. I drove 45 miles and my mileage registered 147 miles. What could be wrong with this. My low mileage is the value in this car.
