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.

The contact owns a 2010 Buick Lacrosse. The contact stated that while in traffic the park assist and the check engine light flashed on the instrument panel and the vehicle would not accelerate pass 9 mph. The contact drove onto the emergency lane and shut the vehicle off. The contact restarted the vehicle and it continued to travel at 9 mph; therefore, the contact towed the vehicle to a dealer. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer who reprogrammed the tcm which caused the vehicle to slow down due to an engine malfunction. A month later while driving 60 mph the vehicle slowed down again without warning. The park assist and the check engine light illuminated again on the instrument panel and the vehicle towed to a dealer. The dealer was adjusting the selector cable when the complaint was file because it was too tight. The failure mileage was 13,000.
