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.
The painted outside door handles may stick or bind, meaning the door may not latch when closed. If this were to occur, an unlatched door could open unexpectedly and an occupant not wearing a seat belt could fall out of the vehicle. Dealers will replace the painted door handles with chrome door handles free of charge. The recall began August 19, 2009. The GM recall number is 09066.
GM has recalled 2,149 vehicles that may have been assembled with an incorrect steering knuckle on one or both sides. As a result, the tie rod ball stud could pull out of or fracture the tie rod housing, causing it to separate from the steering knuckle.

This recall is expected to begin by December 8, 2008. The General Motors recall number is 08389.
