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.

2002 Buick LeSabre Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 152002

LeSabre 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200 miles


The consumer stated that the 2002 Buick Lesabre was having brake problems. If the road was wet the consumer had to push on the brakes three times to get the vehicle to stop. The consumer took the car back to the dealership three times. The problem was when the weather condition was bad/wet weather.. the salesman drove the car once when it was wet, but the dealer said nothing was wrong. The consumer contacted GM and the BBB. GM sent a letter back to the consumer. The consumer claimed that the heat did not work in the fall. The heat will go for 3 or 4 days and not work, and then it will.. the consumer believed the pdas were faulty.
