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 #2

Nov 012006

LaCrosse 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,650 miles


: the contact stated the vehicle stalled while stopped at an intersection. The vehicle was taken to the service dealer who changed the fuel pump. After the repair, the check engine light illuminated. The vehicle has been to the service dealer three times to correct this issue. On the last visit to the service dealer, they determined the vehicle needed a new sensor. The consumer was told the vehicle had an oil leak, the front rotors were machined. The gas cap assembly was replaced, the blower motor resistor was replaced, because when the windshield wipers were turned on, the heat would cut off. Updated 12/12/06

LaCrosse 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,435 miles
: the contact stated while driving 10 mph toward an intersection on normal road conditions, the vehicle started shaking when brakes were applied. No warning light were illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealership who determined the rotors must be machined. After a visual inspection the contact noticed that all four tires were of a different brand; the dealership informed there was no concern about the different tire brands. Also, the vehicle had an oil leak. The dealership determined the leak was from the oil filter and corrected it. After a few miles driven, the vehicle presented problems with the fuel pump and the dealership had to replace it. Also, an exterior lighting problem was noticed which was detected due to wiring corrosion located in the trunk. After the repairs, the engine warning light illuminated; the dealership corrected the defect but after few miles, the warning light illuminated again. The manufacturer was contacted who provided the NHTSA phone number when asked for a resolution.
