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.

Whistling started at 1,500 miles. At idle or low RPM, a high whistle is heard, and changes pitch with RPM. I had car into dealers 4 TIMES, and Buick REP tells me that it is DESIGNED this way and is my imagination??? NO WAY. I would recommend Buick redesign the ALTERNATOR, or SOLVE THE PROBLEM. This is not good for a new car, and will discourage people from buying a Buick. Any ideas anyone? If I were Buick, I would change Alternators until I got a good one for this car. I thought it could be a vacuum leak, but they said NO.
