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.

2006 Buick LaCrosse Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 302006


  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles


It had rained earlier in the day and the roads were still wet. I was traveling 30 mph in a 40 mph zone. I applied my brakes approx. 200 feet prior to the traffic and stop light. The car skidded. At 150 feet I broke harder and the ABS engaged. The harder I pushed the more the car skidded. The brakes never stopped the car -- it only slowed it down. The only time the car stopped was when it hit the SUV in front of it, causing $3,000 worth of damage to my car. Either the brakes don't work properly, or there is not enough traction with the tires. (Goodyear integrity).
