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.

While stationary or in motion the driver side front door will not unlock with key fob, unlock button on door panel, or by hand. All three methods have been attempted to unlock the door and they have been unsuccessful.

Driving along when all of a sudden warning came on, and car slowed almost to a stop, got message on dash that traction stability was a problem. Problem went away and aeveral months later, car slowed down on the garden state parkway, had to leave the road, the problem became more of a problem as the months went by, took to the dealer had to replace the sensor, it may have been related to the key problem, which was corrected by the dealer so far so good. Now the door locks are failing, rear passenger was the first to go, now front locks not working properly, what is wrong with this Buick I only have a little over 50,0000 miles on the car
