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.

When this vehicle is parked forward on a slight incline the trunk lid bounces, when opened by the remote. Both my wife and myself have been hit on the head, I received a slight laceration. This is a dangerous situation. Someone can get a concussion. We have gone through all of Buick's channels of complaint.
