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

May 102010

LeSabre Custom 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


I heard a humming sound from the driver's side from of the vehicle which became louder as time went on. I took it to a repair shop and the owner said that this is common due to how the bearings are made. He showed me the bearing assembly he had replaced and I was appalled to see the bearing was incased in nylon. The nylon had multiple cracks in it and allowed the grease to seep out. How cheap !!! I have replaced a total of four bearings sinced I have owned the car since it was new. Never another Buick !!!
