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.

2005 Buick LaCrosse Owner Comments

  • 42,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Buick Lacrosse. The contact stated that when driving at any speed, the vehicle would intermittently jerk when changing gears and sporadically would fail to start. In addition, the rear defroster would take an abnormally long time to defrost the window and the air conditioning unit would independently turn off and on. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where they were unable to diagnose the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 42,000 and the current mileage was unavailable.
