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.

I was getting off of work and as I tried to open my car I noticed the remote wasn't work. As I approached my vehicle I smelled something burnt. Figured it was coming from the alley. I noticed my windshield wipers were up. I manually opened the car and it smelled worse of burnt. Noticed that nothing was working inside my vehicle. I call security to come and help me and as we open the hood it smelled just as bad. We noticed that the fuse box had a melted hole in it. Once it opened several fused were burnt. I have read that several people have had the same issue. I wish U let us upload pictures of this incident. What if while driving my car had caught on fire or something worse could have happened to me or my child. Luckily I was out of my vehicle when this problem occurred. This issue has to be looked at. Now I have to tow my car out of my work garage pay for that and then pay for my vehicle to get fix which we should definitely get reimbursed for it because it's obvious that this is a recurring issue that has not been fixed. It can turn out to be a big law suit against Buick. I had the same issue also with the headlights. I would be driving at night and out of no where my lights would just shut off. Had to replace that also...updated 07/21/15 updated 11/9/2015

Panel lights began to go out one at a time in 2009. The low beam head lights went out one at a time; when replaced, both went out at the same time. After that both high beams went out at the same time and had to be replaced. The driver's door handle has broken twice in 18 months. The transmission began to slip after that. The driver seat belt light often remained on while seat-belt is connected. While traveling on a wet road I attempted to brake prior to a water puddle when the car slid sideways off the road into a soggy-bog and spun 2.5 times in a circle in app. 12" of mud before it stopped, and had to be towed out. Presently, the ABS service lights remain on, the clock and radio lights are out, the cd player does not function at all, the seat belt light may come on in transit unprovoked, going on and off for the duration of the trip. If cruise control is not turned off when parked the gas needle drops as if there is a leak. If there are no other recalls on this car, there should be!
