Saturn Relay Problems
Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians often recommend replacement of the front rotors and brake pads as the best option to correct this condition.
Corrosion at the fuel tank to body harness may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate or a crank no start condition. This corrosion issue is most commonly caused by a water leak inside the vehicle. Any damaged wiring or connectors will require replacement.
The front struts may show signs of wear, or be excessively bouncy ride at freeway speeds. This may begin to occur at around 75,000 miles.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid and should be replaced if this is the case.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
The outboard release handle on a second row bucket seat may be activated during a side impact crash. This could cause the rear seat latches to disengage, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant. Dealers will remove the seat latch release handle and install a plastic cap to eliminate this side impact safety concern. This recall is expected to begin on April 5, 2005. The General Motors recall number is 05015.
RepairPal Expert Overview:
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. This could lead to unintended vehicle movement and cause an accident. The dealer will inspect each rear parking brake caliper and replace free of charge if slippage is noticed. The GM recall # is 05059

Saturn Relay Reviews
This is the absolute worst car anyone could ever consider purchasing. Well, seeing that Saturn is no longer around I guess there is no worry. This thing has been nothing but a money pit since we bought it new in July of 2005. In the last 2 years, I have put on 5 brand new alternators, replaced the battery 2 times and have had to replace the starter. In addition, the ABS/Traction light comes on and I have replaced both front hubs twice. The dealer tells us that there is no recall info for the constant "Battery Saver Active" or the "Charging System Failure". I call bull crap on that one. I have replaced the battery terminals and even ran a new ground wire as per Saturn's advice. Please if others are having the same issues, let me know. Email me at:
Overall we enjoy our Relay van, however we have repeated problems with the ABS & Traction lights going on. Two repairs were made during warranty, and the last repair was costly.
We've had our 2005 2+ Relay for six years. We've had one warranty repair and one repair out of warranty. So far we are completely pleased with our minivan "Bessie"

The electric sliding doors have a mind of their own, upon closing. Sometimes they close completely sometimes not. The steering creates a loud clunking under the van when turning the wheels. Have had an A/C leak at one of the line connections and have had to recharge the system. Other than these problems it it a fine vehicle.
