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

May 012002

LeSabre 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,825 miles


Front end vibrated while driving at highway speeds. Vehicle had been balanced/ wheel bearings had been replaced, and a steering dampener was installed. None of these repairs remedied the problem; cause not determined. Tsb# 000310007A did not reference this problem. The area representative concluded that the torque converter was the cause of the vibration. He also stated that nothing could be done to correct the problem.
