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.

Trip check showed: Fuel leak under engine cover, front wheel drive shaft oil leaking fluid, power steering leaking fluid. Air bag light came on after the horn was hit hard, after about 20 minutes it went of, technician couldn't find anything wrong with it.

The dashboard is separating or peeling apart. It started a year ago, it was about 12 inches wide, now it has separated all the way to the passenger side of the dash and sicks up into my view about 5-6 inches. It is my understanding that this can cause the airbag to deploy for no reason on the passenger side. This problem is causing my car to be unsafe to drive. It is obstructing my view and could be lethal to the passenger. It is an obvious defect due to poor engineering and should be recalled immediately.

The dashboard cover has come loose and has left a 3 inch gap near the center of the windshield. An internet search reveals that there are hundreds of Buick le sabres with the same defect. I saw 3 similar defects in my own retirement community on similar cars. This defect could also cause a release of the air bag which presents a serious safety hazard. Buick should be required to recall my car and replace the cover. This is clearly a product defect. I have been driving more than 60 years and have never seen a dashboard cover come loose.

The consumer states that the sun shines upon the light gray dashboard, the dash board reflects up into the windshield reducing the visibility by an estimated 30 percent. The consumer has placed a black cloth on the dash to improve the visibilty and feels that the solution to this problem is simple and inexpensive; make the dash board flat black.

There is a reflection from the defroster vent on the dashboard which is very blinding to consumer. Took vehicle to dealer, but problem still exists.
