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.

1998 Buick LeSabre Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 292000


  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


While driving about 55 mph rear wheels on the driver's side locked up for no apparent reason. Vehicle veered off the road and back on. Everything seemed to be okay. About a half an hour later, this happened again. Vehicle was towed to a dealership. Dealer was not able to find out what caused this problem. Also, master cylinders were changed on both rear brakes on June 3, 2000. Owner not sure if this could have caused the wheel to lock up. When the vehicle jerked sliding to the left, the wheel rim of driver side became bent locking it against the wheel bracket.
