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.

2012 Buick Enclave Owner Comments

problem #2

May 022016


  • 27,000 miles


The car was bought brand new in 2013. My warranty expired 2 months ago. The car has only 27K miles. Already the power steering fluid line broke and leaking, causing very unsafe steering manipulation. The brake calipers have failed and leaking brake fluid again causing unsafe driving conditions. Buick will not fix these issues, which clearly are a result of poor quality.

Enclave 6-cyl

  • 36,900 miles
Twice in the last 30 days our Enclave was showing low on gas (usually not an issue) but both times the car sputtered to a stop. Once it quit I lost all power steering and braking. Even after I put gas in the car, the key would not move so I was unable to start the car without a jump. Car was towed to dealership. They were unable to recreate the issue although they were unable to explain why the key would lock up in the ignition. According to Buick everything checked out fine. Based on what we are hearing on the news, this issue seems very similar to the cobalt issue. Thank you.
