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.

2009 Buick Enclave Owner Comments

problem #5

My service air bag light came on for no apparent reason, after my friend and I re-entered the vehicle while on a day outing. I believe it to be for the passenger seat, because the passenger air bag dash light will not illuminate to on when a passenger is seated in it. Worried that it may be for the whole air bag system. When I called my dealership after reading about the recall, there response was unfortunately your car is not covered. I don't understand why? they said the same thing when the power steering pump went out on it & I paid separate for a diagnostics, which they sent me down the road, which is 125 miles one way from the dealership. Only to return a week later and have is replaced.
