Ignition Lock Cylinder Concern

In order to help prevent rollaway type accidents, all late model vehicles are designed so that the transmission must be in park (or reverse for a manual transmission) before the ignition switch can be turned to the "off" position and the key removed. These vehicles are being recalled because the key can be removed when the ignition is not in the "off" position, increasing the risk of a rollaway type accident. Dealers will inspect the vehicle and replace the ignition lock cylinder as necessary. 2 new keys will also be supplied and programmed as required.

The AIrbags May Not Deploy as Expected

These vehicles are being recalled because the weight on the key ring and/or a jarring event while driving may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine. If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the ignition switch to correct this concern.

Seat Belt Anchors Not Strong Enough

The seat belt anchor bolt mountings may not be sufficiently strong enough to secure the belt in an accident. Dealers will inspect the inboard seat studs and if necessary remove the stud and install a bolt free of charge to resolve the concern.

Saturn Sky 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.
