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.

problem #1

LaCrosse 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Buick Lacrosse. The instrument panel and the driver information center are difficult to read during the day or early mornings because the sensors are dim. The dealer replaced the light cluster switches and stated that the instrument panel and information center were designed with dim lighting; therefore, replacements would not correct the failure. The current mileage was 15,500 and failure mileage was 14,000. Updated 02-25-08 the intermediate shaft was replaced due to a noise being heard in the steering while driving. The starter motor was replaced. Updated
