Saturn VUE on NHTSA December 2003 Recall List

General Motors Corporation
Models:     Saturn Vue                   Year:      2004
Number Potentially Involved:  6,134
Dates of Manufacture:  June – October 2003
Noncompliance:  Certain sport utility vehicles equipped with 3.5L V6 (L66) engines fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 120, "Tire Selection and Rims for Vehicles other than Passenger Cars." The front and rear wheel rim size specifications on the tire/certification label are not correct. The printed wheel rim designation specified a 16-inch wheel when a 17-inch wheel designation was required. If the wheel rim size is incorrectly printed on a tire/certification label, a service technician who solely uses the tire/certification label for service information may attempt to replace a damaged wheel with an incorrect wheel.
Remedy:   Owners will be provided with a corrected label and installation instructions. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on December 15, 2003. Owners may contact Saturn at 1-800-553-6000.
