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.

2001 Buick LeSabre Owner Comments

problem #1

LeSabre Limited 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,509 miles


Lats Thursday in April, I unlocked my 2001 Buick Lesabre Limited, and I have it set so the seat will go back when unlocked, but it didn't move. So I just got in. I was getting on the freeway, and then the seat moved forward with no reason. I didn't touch a thing. And I couldn't get my 83 year old foot off the gas in time and I accelerated to nearly 112mpg. I was so scared,so then the seat moved back with no reason. I was relieved, but I couldn't reach the gas. I pulled off to the side of the road. And rested a few minutes before going home(I was on my way to Longs when this happened). So then I took it into the shop and they didn't know what to do. so I have been living like this since Thursday. Does anyone know what to do...or has this happened to anyone else?I'm so mad. I could have hurt someone or myself, or even killed someone or myself. I'M SO DAMN MAD!Mind you I'm 83, so I have had my share of scares, but this was the worst, especially on the freeway.
