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.

LaCrosse 6-cyl

  • 5,000 miles
Multiple times since purchase air bag indicator has either blinked, has been constantly on or hasn't been on at all. Instrument panel display, ie: Mileage indicator, temperature display, trip indicator hasn't worked on occasion, radio and/or interior temperature display doesn't come on until you drive for five to forty five minutes. Door locks have actuated either up or down while driving. Remote door locks either don't work at all or one or more does, one or more doesn't work, when manually using a key security system has activated thus sounding the horn. Many of these items have been discussed with my dealer and we were told by them that GM is aware of the problem but there isn't a fix at this time.
