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.

Since I've owned the car it's been very hard to drive on the hwy once I hit a certain speed it loses control very easy also the engine control module keeps failing loss of battery all the time I smell a burning plastic smell coming from the back of the car every so often and the front seat locks up all the time also seems to have a failure to it as well and the 2012 Buick Lacrosse I own says there no recall when I run the VIN but has the same symptoms as the 2012 Buick Lacrosse that is on recall

Vehicle instrument cluster reported traction control service needed, tire pressure monitor service needed and key not detected. I pulled over immediately to look at the tires and all were good. Drove car to dealer as I assumed it would not identify the key fob and restart. Dealer confirmed warning lights at time of drop off but could not find any stored fault codes. Returned car with no corrective action. This is the second time the TPMS has indicated a flat tire, usually drivers side rear. TPMS false indicators are a serious safety concern.
