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.

2013 Buick Encore Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 132013


  • 2,000 miles


Driver of 2013 Buick Encore was traveling at approximately 35-40 mph when struck at perpendicular angle on passengers side. Control of the car was lost. The Encore tipped, landing on the driver's side. Side curtain airbags deployed. The driver was conscious, but smelled fumes. An asthmatic, the driver sensed an oncoming attack and began screaming to be pulled from the vehicle. A heroic bystander climbed onto the vehicle, was able to open the passenger side door toward the sky, and pulled her from the vehicle before paramedics arrived. Amazingly, the driver walked away from the vehicle unharmed. According to reports, tipping under these conditions is rare. The 2013 Buick Encore must be examined for a propensity to tip.
