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

Sep 012007

LaCrosse 6-cyl

  • 19,446 miles


2005 Buick Lacrosse with defective brakes under recall. Customer stated that her vehicle had defective brakes and the pedal was pressed the brakes would not be applied. She was told two weeks before repairs could be made. The consumer also stated the lights on the driver's information center were dim most of the time and sometimes disappeared altogether. The dealer informed the consumer it was a normal occurrence for interior illumination to dim/brighten due to voltage demand and/or ambient light conditions. The consumer believed there was a short circuit in the electrical system, a problem with a computer chip or the battery voltage. The power steering pressure hose leaked due to poor manufacturing.
