Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The rear defrost had 5 lines that quit, also caused radio antenna that is on the rear window to quit when turning on rear defrost. Window was replaced and same thing has happened with second window. Dealership accused me of damaging window and will not replace second window under warranty. Also have chirping noise near speedometer that dealership has not been able to fix after 4 repair attempts. Dealership has destroyed entire dashboard trying to repair noise.

The odometer on my recently purchased 2002 Buick Century (from a Buick dealer with 22,000 miles and still under warranty) appears to be off by approximately 4%. on a recent trip of 450 miles (a trip taken and measured many times in the past), my ending trip mileage registered as 467 miles (an overage of 17 miles). On the return trip, I used numerous interstate mileage markers to compare distances. For each 100 miles traveled, the odometer registers it as 104 miles. To me, this is an issue of the speedometer not being correct, plus more miles are registering than are actually being placed on the vehicle. This affects service recommendations and the resale value of the vehicle. The dealer offered absolutely no help. Other than saying the mileage markers must be off - they suggested I use different size tires. (to my knowledge these are the original tires on the vehicle). Is there no way to recalibrate the speedometer?
