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.

LeSabre 6-cyl

  • 62,000 miles


1. dashboard separating from windshield and causing 3" gap causing partial obstruction. Now is separating more at drivers' side near steering wheel, and about 75% pulled away at this time. Critical safety problem because air bags may deploy and injury or death could occur. Cannot fix easily and consider it critical defect and inferior workmanship. Not able to safely drive the car or able to sell it! 2. electric windows in back passenger and driver side had to be replaced. $$ 3. light switch control malfunctions and recently stuck in the "on" position. Had to disconnect battery to turn off. This just happened last night and was inconvenienced greatly !! 4. headliner falling down and was repaired twice. Now is falling down where it was not repaired!

LeSabre 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100 miles
When I accidentally ( with out my knowing that I had bumped the parking light switch) bumped the parking light switch while adjusting the dash lights while driving after dark the head lights went out, I had no idea why the head lights went out. It was a good thing that I was only driving about 5 to 10 mile per hour and was able to stop with out an accident. It took me a while to figure out why the head lights had gone out, I pushed all the light switches until finding out that I had accidentally pushed the parking light switch. I notified Buick customer service and they said that there was nothing wrong with the lights, that the head lights were designed to go out when the parking light switch was pushed. They refused to take any action of any kind what so ever. If your head lights go when driving 65 mph after dark, that it is a serious safety problem.
