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. Consumer states injury and accident due to a mechanical anomaly stating vehicle reversed on its own. The consumer stated she put the gear in park, opened the door and left it open while she walked approximately eight steps. As the consumer turned around, she saw the vehicle traveling backwards and ran to stop it. Soon, the vehicle was in the middle of the street and she realized she couldn't get in the vehicle, but at that point the door apparently hit the consumer and knocked her to the pavement. The injury resulted in a concussion which eventually required brain surgery to remove a hematoma.
