What to do if your Saturn isn't part of the big GM recall

Karen drives a 2003 Saturn Vue. She says it's experiencing the same ignition troubles that have resulted in the recall of about 2.6 million General Motors vehicles.

So far, only the Saturn Ion and the Saturn Sky are part of the recall. The Vue is not.

Karen wants to know what she should do in a situation like this.

ASK LAZ: Smart answers to consumer questions

She's not alone. I found a number of other Vue owners online who say they, too, are experiencing ignition issues.

At the moment, though, they'd have to pay the cost of any repairs themselves.

So what's my advice to Karen and others? Check out today's Ask Laz video.
