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.

problem #2

Apr 012012

LaCrosse 4-cyl

  • 0 miles


Headrests are angled too dramatically and impair visibility, driver comfort and also seem to be a safety risk. The angle is not adjustable, and the discomfort provided renders them unusable, forcing the driver to lean forward perpetually. They are not removable, and can only go up/down, which actually makes it even more uncomfortable.

LaCrosse 4-cyl

Head rest is angled too far forward - there is no way to adjust the angle (only up and down height). This creates neck pain, back pain, etc. There is no way to adjust where my head is not forced into my chin if I fully rest my shoulders on the seat. I fear a severe neck injury if ever in a crash in this vehicle.
